Dan Folkman scored three goals and assisted on two others to lead Cherry Hill East to a 6-3 win over Eastern. The victory was the first of the season for East after eleven straight losses. With a roster full of underclassmen the team should only get better. Folkman got the offense going as he scored less than a minute into the game. Torin Lawson responded about ninety seconds later scoring on a breakaway. Dan Drazen gave Eastern a 2-1 lead scoring a short-handed goal late in the period, but Folkman responded with a power play goal to tie the score at 2-2 after one period.

After Folkman set-up the go ahead goal in the first five minutes of the second period, Eastern could not generate much offense and the period ended at 3-2. Dave Badecki scored in the opening seconds of the third period, again set-up by Folkman, but Drazen responded for the Vikings just over a minute later to cut the lead to 4-3. Folkman completed his hat trick with an assist going to Louis Kramer and the lead was back to two at 5-3. Matt Bushman added an empty net goal to close out the scoring.
