This past Sunday night, prior to the Eastern-Cherokee JVA game, the Cherokee Chiefs organization came together to honor this young man, taken way too soon. Shane was a member of the Flyers youth program and also played on the Chiefs middle school program. This year he would have played under Coach Sabol on the JVA team as a freshman at Cherokee.

Down 3-2 late in the period Coach McKay took a time out and decided that with 97 seconds left in the game and an offensive zone face-off it was the right time to pull the goalie for an extra skater. Well timing is everything as Jacob Bianchi would get the equalizer and give the Chiefs a 3-3 tie with rival Moorestown. It’s always a gamble when you pull the goalie and making sure it’s the right time and most coaches will say it’s a feel on how the flow is going and most importantly where is the face-off. Cherokee struck early as Jack Ellis would give them a 1-0 lead scoring his second of the season 49 seconds into the game. Elias Sulpizio would tie the game for Moorestown scoring on a short-handed breakaway five minutes into the second period.
