Washington Township battled back from a 4-0 deficit only to surrender two late goals to Eastern and lose 6-4 in the regular season finale for both teams. The Vikings dominated the first period launching twenty shots and scoring three goals. First Anthony Tropea scored fifty three seconds into the game for a 1-0 lead. Goals by Constantine Roustas and a short-handed goal by Jacob Findley had the lead to 3-0 after one. Kristopher Zappata scored on the power play four minutes into the second period to push the lead to 4-0. Mike Guarracino would put Township on the board twenty seven seconds later to give them some life at 4-1.

Early in the third period Kyle McGarvey would make it 4-2 and Township now had some momentum going. At the six minute mark Harrison Rauh made it 4-3 and with five minutes left in the game Guarracino would get his second of the night and Township was all the way back at 4-4. Kristian Massanova would break the tie with just over two minutes left in the game and Findley would add an empty net goal to finish the scoring. The loss snapped a seven game winning streak for Township, and they will open the playoffs on Monday night at Voorhees against top seed Cherokee.
