The Vikings built a 4-0 lead through two periods before Moorestown would mount a third period comeback. Joe Arlotta gave the Vikings a 1-0 lead just one minute into the game. We would stay that way until less than five minutes left in the period when James McGrath would score just his second goal of the season and the lead was 2-0. Kuznetsov as it turned out would score the next four for the Vikings. His first coming just thirty seconds after McGrath’s goal and the lead was 3-0 after one.

Mike Moss broke a 2-2 game with ten minutes left in the game as Team Simmonds edged Team Giroux 3-2 in last night’s Junior/Senior Showcase game at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. Having participated in the last few drafts Coach McKay has never won in this format, and while he wouldn’t admit that it bothered him, I got to believe that the success he has enjoyed over the last 8 years, not winning this game was probably bothering him to a degree. Trailing 2-0 on goals by Kevin Troy of St Joe’s and Zachary Faust of Black Horse, Team Simmonds would get a late goal in the period as Cody Charyk from Shawnee would score with Moss and Vinny Salerno getting the assists.
