Robert Wildish scored twice and Williamstown struggled on the power play going 0-8 as the Quakes remained unbeaten with a 5-2 win over the Braves in a game played at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. Wildish would get his 16th on the season at the nine minute mark of the first period. The lead became 2-0 five minutes later as Kevin Hillman would go top shelf for his sixth of the year. Less than one minute later Charlie Banquier would see his slap shot from the point find the net for his first of the season and the lead was 3-0.

Williamstown would begin the second period with a two-man advantage for almost a full two minutes and a golden opportunity to climb back in the game but they failed to capitalize. Moorestown, which thinks defense first, smothered anyone who had the puck and despite the advantage could not capitalize. Midway through the period Justin Fortuna was camped in front and was able to jam a shot home to put Williamstown on the board and cut the deficit to 3-1. Moments later Andrew Jordan would make the play at the point to keep the puck in and his shot from the slot found the net and would give Moorestown a 4-1 lead after two. Williamstown would have another two-man advantage, this time for the full two minutes, but once again did not capitalize. Williamstown would score a short-handed goal with four minutes left as Steve Poulin made a nice pass to Dennis Campbell on a 2-on-1 break to make it 4-2, but Wildish would get his second of the night two minutes later and ice the game.

Notes: With the win Moorestown improved to 10-0-2 on the season and a four point lead in the division. Chris Palko got his second start in nets for Moorestown and was solid in nets for the Quake.
