Rumson-Fair Haven reigns supreme in neighborly ice war, launching 40 shots on Red Bank in Saturday's game.
The Rumson-Fair Haven Bulldogs (3-0) defeated the Red Bank Regional Buccaneers (0-3) by a score of 4-1 in a high school hockey matchup at Red Bank Armory Ice Complex Saturday. The Bulldogs took control of the puck early in the game, pounding RBR goalie Charlie Fox with 16 shots in the first period. Fox stepped up and stopped them all, but the Bucs struggled to get the puck out of their zone long enough to generate any scoring chances.

The last one was a backdoor, nothing there but a great pass," said Franco, who was assisted by Joe DelSordo on both goals. RBR goalie Charlie Fox …
