Cherokee Scores Early and Often in Rout of Eastern

Kyle Manny and Justin Kinniry scored three goals each and Tom Paradise added two goals and two assists as Cherokee flew past Eastern 11-1 in action played at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. Having been a successful organization over the years the Vikings have struggled these last few years and instead of battling for the top spot, they find themselves near the bottom of the standings, and probably in Tier 2 next season. Thanks to the mercy rule, where a team with a 10 goal lead will be declared the winner, the game was stopped early in the third period when Ryan Thompson scored the eleventh goal. Torin Lawson scored the lone Viking goal. Kevin McMahon also scored twice for Cherokee.
