Moorestown improved to 7-0-2 as they defeated Eastern 3-1 at the Skate Zone in Voorhees on Monday night. Robert Wildish scored the only goal of the first period as the Quakes led 1-0. Missing top scorer and playmaker Max Kuznetsov, the Vikings were outshot 38-19 and could not generate much offense. Andrew Jordan would give Moorestown a 2-0 lead with less than five minutes left in the second period and the Quakes would carry that lead into the third period. Jacob Findley would put the Vikings on the scoreboard three minutes into the final period getting his fifth of the year and fourth in the last three games and Eastern despite the lack of offense was back in the game at 2-1.

The Vikings were just waiting for an opportunity to get the tying goal and that came at the ten minute mark as Moorestown was called for an interference penalty and the Vikings had their opportunity, but failed to capitalize. Then in the final minute they pulled the goalie but Sean Humes would score into the empty net to give Moorestown to 3-1 win.

Notes: Moorestown has quietly built a 7-0-2 record behind balanced scoring, strong goaltending as Conroy has a 1.56 GAA tops among Tier I and staying out of the penalty box.
