Coming off their first loss of the season on Friday night to Shawnee, Cherokee bounce back with a 5-3 victory over the Eastern Vikings on Monday night at Voorhees. Jake Frankenfield led the offense with two goals. Conor Riley gave the Vikings a 1-0 lead at the eight minute mark of the first period. Just over one minute later Frankenfield would get the tying goal on a feed from Darren Ambrose. Early in the second period Cherokee would take a 2-1 lead on Patrick Dugan’s first goal of the season. Five minutes later Dustin Patterson would connect for his second goal of the season and the Chiefs took a 3-1 lead into the third period.

Jake Kelley put the Chiefs up 4-1 four minutes into the third period as Cherokee seemed to be in control. Luke A Riley would get the Vikings to within 4-2 at the five minute mark, but Eastern would commit two straight penalties, and Cherokee would capitalize on the two-man advantage as Frankenfield would score the power play goal and a 5-2 lead. On the back end of the power play the Vikings would score a short-handed goal as Kristopher Zapata would get his fourth of the season to make it 5-3, but the Vikings could get no closer. Cherokee improved to 8-1 on the season, Eastern fell to 6-3.
