Zach Robins scored five goals as Mainland rallied from a two goal deficit to defeat Black Horse 6-5 in the JVB Title game played at Voorhees. Trailing 3-1, Mainland scored five unanswered goals to take a 6-3 lead, before Black Horse rallied back.

Scott Veneziale and Nick Finocchiaro scored in the opening nine minutes to give Black Horse a 2-0 lead. Mainland got one back late in the period as Robins scored with Tim Vant getting the first of his three assists. Kevin Oneill scored at the five minute mark of the second period to give Black Horse a 3-1 advantage. Mainland then would score four goals in the next six minutes to capture a 5-3 lead after two. Robins would account for three of them and Frank Christy got the other.

Robins completed his five goal night at the three minute mark of the third period and Mainland would seemingly be in control at 6-3. But Black Horse would rally as Veneziale would score his second of the night on a nice shot along the ice. Then with the goalie pulled for an extra skater Veneziale scored his third goal, but Black Horse would get no closer. Congratulations to Mainland and their staff.
