Washington Township opened their season playing against defending champion Cherokee and the teams played to a 2-2 stand-off. Township jumped out to a 2-0 first period lead, scoring both goals in the final three minutes, one by Chris Cozzan and the other short-handed by Jim Pollock, despite giving Cherokee four power play opportunities. Strong play by Zachary Burkhardt helps keep the Chiefs off the board.

Anthony Salvatore would put Cherokee on the board early in the second period, scoring the first of his two goals, to cut the deficit to 2-1. At the six minute mark Salvatore would get the equalizer for Cherokee and we were tied at 2-2. Township would have to kill off two more penalties before the period ended, and Burkhardt keep the Chiefs off the board. Neither team could score in the third period and the game ended in a draw. Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come.
