Christian Romeo scored with fourteen seconds left in regulation to snap a 4-4 game and give Moorestown a 5-4 win over Cherokee in a Flyers Cup game played at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. The two rivals played back and forth all night, and it felt like we were going overtime until Romeo’s heroics. Jake Frankenfield gave the Chiefs a 1-0 lead going end-to-end and lifting a backhander into the top shelf. That lead lasted all of thirty nine seconds as Sean Humes would tie the game at 1-1 for the Quakes. Early in the second period Luke Dobbs gave Moorestown a 2-1 lead but right after the faceoff Cherokee would get the equalizer as Trevor Ligeikis scored down low and we were knotted at 2-2.

Brandon Eberly gave Moorestown a 3-2 lead early into the third period but Jeremy Ambrose would tie the game at 3-3 scoring from the slot midway through the period. With both teams playing defense first it appeared overtime was a strong possibility until Romeo scored in the final seconds. The Quakes now make it into the semi-finals in the Flyers Cup.
