High School Ice Hockey:
Eagles and Cougars Reach Exciting 7-7 Tie

Friday, January 30th

If you're tired of the clutching and holding of the NHL, come out and watch end to end play, big hits, great saves, great plays, fast skating, and players who give it their all on every shift. It is the South Jersey High School Hockey League.

On Friday, January 30th the Cherry Hill East Cougars (SJHSIHL Tier I) and the Edgewood Eagles (SJHSIHL Tier II) faced off at Hollydell Ice Center in a very exciting game that left no one a loser. Some of the eager fans, like Mrs. Anita Bullock and Mr. Douglas Roemer, said the 7-7 tie was truly entertaining.

The game looked gloomy for Edgewood, with only eight skaters and one goalie (recovering from the flu) able to play that night. Of the eight players, one player only had a single hockey glove to wear. Cherry Hill's prospects didn't look terrific either, with two players sitting out for 12 and 14 minutes each. This was a carryover from an incident in their last game.
