Sean Zahacewski scored two goals while Chris Sabol stopped thirty shots as Cherokee defeated Clearview 4-1 to sweep the series and advance to the finals in the SJHSIHL against Washington Township. Clearview scored its only goal early in the game taking a 1-0 lead as Bill Dunbar put home a rebound off a shot by Joe Smith. Cherokees' offense started slow and their first shot on goal came almost five minutes into the game, but it was on the power play. Mike Scian found the five hole and the game was tied at 1-1. Midway through the period Cherokee took the lead for good as Pat Henderson skated down the right side and found Jason Dragum in the slot and his one-timer found the net to make the score 2-1.
