|High School Ice Hockey:

Cherry Hill East was unable to capitalize on a two-man advantage for a full two minutes and Cherokee scored four goals in the third period to break open a close game and won going away, 8-2 in high school ice hockey action played at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. Trailing just 3-2 with less than five minutes remaining in the second period East went on the power play with a chance to tie and possibly take the lead. But they never got set-up in the offensive zone and failed to generate any shots on goal.
Moments after killing the penalties, Patrick McMahon blistered a slap shot from the blue line to put Cherokee up 4-2 heading into the third period. Two goals by Lou Sarcone and two more by McMahon iced the game for Cherokee. Andrew Roth and John Faford scored the East goals. Next up for Cherokee is a meeting with Clearview on Friday night at Hollydell.
