Nearly 10 months after rallying in the third period to win the state championship, the CBA hockey team has returned to the ice.
The Colts' first week of regular season action saw two resounding victories: an 8-1 win over St. Peter's Prep and a 4-0 shutout of Manasquan.
Christian Brothers is ranked as the number one team in the state by NJ.com.
Last March, the Colts won their eighth Non-Public A State Championship over Don Bosco. Trailing 1-0 heading into the final period, CBA scored four unanswered goals in the final 20 minutes to complete the emphatic comeback.
Weeks earlier, CBA capture its ninth Gordon Cup conference title, also over Don Bosco.
The returning contingent of Colts is headlined by NJ.com Player of the Year, junior goalie Jake Donohoe. The CBA goaltender posted .928 save percentage last season, allowing just 39 goals to 501 saves.
Senior standouts Colin Grable, Robert Setteducati, Lucas Salas and Justin Lidondici also return to lead the 2021 Colts. Last year's top goal scorer, junior Zach Wagnon, is back as well.
Due to NJSIAA COVID-19 precautions, there will be no state championship contested in 2021. However, the Gordon Cup Tournament is being planned for early March.
