Jeremy Ambrose had two goals and one assist and Sam Libetti added a goal and one assist as Cherokee defeated Eastern 4-3 in front of a standing room only crowd on Friday night at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. With fans lined up over one hour prior to the game, and many of them were not able to get in, the Chiefs needed this game to force a deciding game on Monday night. Eastern had gone through the tournament undefeated and needed just to win tonight to repeat as champs. Coach McKay needed a big effort from his top line and strong defense and he got both tonight.

Three periods, two five minute overtime periods and 29 shooters and we were still tied before Jake Zuckerman stood alone at center ice with a chance to finally end the drama. Zuckerman, a defenseman, had just one goal on the season, back in December against Lower Cape May, and with offensive stalwarts like Max Kouznetsov and Conor Riley, you would not have guessed a defenseman would win the game for the Vikings. But after going through the first two rounds of the shootout, with each team getting one goal per round we were into the third round of shooters and Eastern had used every player, with Zuckerman being the last one left before we started over again.

After starting the season 3-3, Cherokee has now won eight in a row including Monday night’s impressive 3-0 win over Eastern at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. Crisp passing and getting back on defense were the consistent factors as the Chiefs outshot Eastern 33-10. Granted the Vikings were missing leading score Max Kuznetsov, but Cherokee seems to have found their grove at the right time as we wind down the season. Jacob Bianchi gave the Chiefs a 1-0 lead with just over two minutes left as good work down low by Jeremy Ambrose created the scoring opportunity. Just over one minute later Samuel Berger put home a rebound of a shot by Mike Deford and the lead was 2-0.
