Trailing 3-1 with four minutes left in the game Shawnee got goals from Mike Wolverton and David Hoftiezer to earn Shawnee a 3-3 tie against Washington Township on senior night at Hollydell. Three seniors combined on the lone goal of the first period as Andrew McGinley scored his team high tenth of the season with Harrison Rauh and Andrew Matlack getting the assists. That goal came just twenty-two seconds into the game. Township would control most of the second period as they out-shot Shawnee 21-4, but thanks to strong goaltending from Keith McGregor, Township would only score one goal that coming from Niko Durnan late in the period. Township would extend their lead to 2-0 lead after two.

Nick Fonseca would put Shawnee on the board early in the third period. Township's lead was now cut to 2-1. Township responded just about one minute later as Angelo Durnan scored and the lead was once again two goals at 3-1. Township would have two power play opportunities to build on the lead but could not capitalize. Wolverton made it 3-2 with four minutes left and Ninety seconds later Hoftiezer would get the equalizer.

Notes: Eloquently emceed by Township president Barry Barnoski, Township honored their six graduating seniors, but with a JVA team undefeated, help is on the way.
