Five different players scored for Clearview as they shut out Shawnee 5-0 and remain undefeated in a SJHSIHL game played at Hollydell on Friday night. After a scoreless first period, Gunnar Fox scored with John Meenan assisting with just about three minutes left in the second period, which was dominated by Clearview as they out-shot Shawnee 18-1. If not for the strong play of net minder Charlie Rodrigo, the score could have been worse.

Patrick Sullivan scored a power play goal in the last two minutes with Meenan again assisting, and the lead was 2-0 as we headed into the final period. Shawnee needed to generate some more offense if they wanted to get back in the game, but Clearview would put the game away as they scored three goals in a span of four minutes. Dante Laspata made it 3-0 after being set-up by Dave Gooch. Ryan Arnold scored with Mike Gooch assisting and the lead was 4-0. Dave Gooch scored short-handed as he broke in all alone and the 5-0 final.

As we approach the midway point of the season, Clearview, which has most of the same players back from last year, remains in first place and are clicking on all cylinders. The difference being they are generating offense to go along with their strong goaltending.
