In just his third game of the season, James Privito scored five goals as Cherry Hill West shutout Lower Cape May 8-0. Andy Home stopped all 30 shots he faced in recording his first shut-out of the season. West has won two in a row and Privito has scored a combined 11 goals in both wins. Privito could be returning at the right time as he led Black Horse to the Tier III Title last year.

Privito scored both first period goals to give West a 2-0 lead. After Privito completed a natural hat trick, scoring his third consecutive goal early in the second period, Marty Bell joined in the scoring as he tallied twice, both unassisted, and the lead was 5-0. Steve Mitropoulos added his second goal of the year late in the period and West was in control at 6-0. Home continued his strong play in goal, as West committed three penalties but Home shut the door.

Privito added his fourth and fifth goal two minutes apart at the ten minute mark of the third period, and despite three more power plays, Cape May could not solve Home.
