On Friday night, Toms River North traveled to Class A South rival Jackson Memorial and fell to the Jaguars by a two-goal margin.
Three days later the Mariners (6-6-1, 3-4-0) welcomed Jackson (8-2-2, 5-1-1) to Winding River Rink and handed the Jaguars –ranked seventh in the APP Top 10 Poll – its first divisional loss of the year with two third period goals scored by senior assistant captain Colton Shan.
Shan was unassisted on the game-tying goal but took a pass from sophomore centerman Nick Pica on the game-winner.
Though Toms River North was dropped out of the APP Top 10 Poll after Week 6, the Mariners certainly made a statement on Monday night.
