Joe Paradise scored with just over four minutes remaining in the game as Holy Cross and Cherokee 2 played to a 2-2 tie at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. After Nick Petitte and Anthony Carr exchanged goals in the first period, neither team could score in the middle stanza, thanks to good back checking and solid goaltending by both teams. John Gidel gave Cherokee a 2-1 lead early in the third period as he jammed home a short side shot. With Holy Cross on the power play, Petitte set-up Paradise for the tying goal, and Holy Cross hung on for the tie. With the point Holy Cross maintains a one point lead over Cherokee, with Cinnaminson closing fast.
