Jack Ellis scored with 39 seconds left in the game, his second goal of the night as Cherokee tied Washington Township 7-7 in exciting Tier I action in Voorhees. Trailing 6-3 with just over five minutes to play, Washington Township would rally and score four goals over the next three minutes and took a  7-6  lead. Cherokee would pull the goalie and with a furious effort managed to get the tying goal.  Harrison Rauh led the Township offense with two goals. After a scoreless first period, Township would take a 2-0 lead on goals by Santino Capone and a power play goal by Matt Egan in the first four minutes of the second period. Cherokee would counter scoring the next three goals in a four minute span as Brendan Forest, Jack Ellis and Colin Devine gave the Chiefs a 3-2 lead with just over four minutes left in the period. 

Niko Durnan would tie the game at 3-3 for Township, but two goals by Anthony Breen twenty two seconds apart gave the Chiefs a 5-3 lead heading into the third period. At the four minute mark Patrick Dugan gave the Chiefs a 6-3 lead, which seemed safe, but with the Chiefs down a man, Rauh would score on the power play with just over five minutes left to make it 6-4. Less than three minutes later Rauh would get his second of the night and Township was within 6-5. Mike Guarracino would get the tying goal seconds later. Giovanni Torrie would score for Township with two minutes left and Township appeared to be on their way for the first win of the season but Ellis would come through for the Chiefs.
