Don’t look now but the hard charging Minutemen of Washington Township after defeating Williamstown 5-1 have now won seven games in a row and is the hottest team heading into the playoffs. These two teams met just twelve days ago in a penalty filled game so tonight we had veteran referee Bob Teti, who prior to the game addressed both teams and delivered a strong message, nothing would be tolerated just play hockey, and his partner was Laura White, another experienced and international referee. I would say message received as we had just 5 penalties and all to Township. Giovanni Torrie gave Township a 1-0 lead scoring his fifth goal of the season with just under four minutes left in the opening period. Later in the period Mike Guarracino on a nice breakout pass by Matt Kennedy would make it 2-0 with CJ Castorina getting the other assist.

Andrew Matlack would score a text book goal at the seven minute mark as he was coming right up the slot and tipped a pass by Nick Mouradjian and the lead was 3-0. Just 43 seconds later sophomore Kyle McGarvey would get his first varsity goal of the year and Township led 4-0. Nate Lowery would put Williamstown on the board scoring on the power play with four minutes left in the period. Guarracino would net his second of the night late in the third to ice the game. Next up for Township is the season finale against Eastern at Hollydell this Friday.
