Two teams from different divisions were looking to pick an all important win. So far this season, the Patriot division has several teams all within a win or two of becoming the top team. The Lions from Cherry Hill West is in the thick of things and they were looking to pick up some momentum at home against the Indians from Lenape. Both of these teams are chasing division leaders who have demonstrated the ability to score plenty of goals, but this game would decided by Lenape during the second quarter. Scott Calmey would score two of his three goals before the half helping Lenape shutout Cherry Hill West by a 4-0 score.
Cherokee and Eastern would be the teams that Lenape would be chasing in the American Division. For Cherry Hill West, Shawnee had the slight edge in the Patriot Division but Kingsway and Winslow Township were all punched up along with the Lions so far this season. Trying to take full advantage, neither West nor Lenape were able to score during the first quarter of this game. But it would be the second quarter that Lenape took full advantage of mid-field turnovers and Calmey positioned himself well for the open shot. His two goals and this third goal at the start of the third quarter quickly decided this game. Matt Lenhoff accounted for the final goal scored in this game.
