With their season on the line and trailing 2-1 after two periods, Washington Township would score twice in the third period to edge Kingsway 3-2 in playoff action played at Hollydell on Wednesday night. The loss eliminated Kingsway from the double elimination tournament. After a scoreless first period which saw Township dominate in shots 17-6, but thanks to strong goaltending from Kingsway goalie Mike Lieze we entered the second period all even. Kingsway would break through first as Aaron Pape scored at the six-minute mark converting a turnover down low and a 1-0 lead. With just over four minutes left in the period Andrew McGinley would bury a shot up top from just inside the circle and we were tied at 1-1.

With the period winding down, Robert Licciardello got off a shot from the point and it found the net with two seconds left and Kingsway led 2-1. Sixteen seconds into the third period Kyle McGarvey intercepted a clearing pass and ripped a shot into the net to tie the game at 2-2. Midway through the period Township would take the lead as Andrew Matlack put home a rebound of a shot by Harrison Rauh. In the final ninety seconds Kingsway would have a power play and a chance to tie the game and after pulling the goalie-a two-man advantage but good fore-checking kept Kingsway from getting the tying goal.

Notes: Township will play Moorestown on Monday night at Voorhees.
