Gunnar Fox scored four times and Anthony Desimone added two goals and two assists as Clearview defeated Cherry Hill East 10-2 and remain the only undefeated Tier 1 team in the league. John Probe opened the scoring for Clearview as Cherry Hill got caught on a line change. Probe broke in all alone and just over a minute into the game Clearview led 1-0. Two minutes later Nick Vacarino intercepted a clearing pass and scored short-handed to make it 2-0. Desimone made it 3-0, after a scramble in front he put the puck just inside the far post.
Clearview kept the pressure on as Desimone skated behind the net and threaded a pass to Matt Carelli and it was 4-0. Cherry Hill failed to generate much offense, but went on the power play in the last two minutes. But again Clearview capitalized as Fox drilled one through a screen and it was 5-0. Still on the same man advantage, East scored on the power play as Nick Giambanis blasted one from the point to make it 5-1. The period ended with both teams converting thirty-three percent of their shots. Unfortunately for East, Clearview took fifteen shots to only three for East.
Brian Buck got East on the board early in the second converting a pass from Kevin Desrochers and East had life at 5-2. That would all change in a matter of thirty seconds. Right after the East goal, Desimone skated in and his blast just ten seconds after the Buck goal made it 6-2. Sixteen seconds later Sam Velora re-directed a cross ice pass from Desimone and his goal made it 7-2. Fox scored the last three goals to complete the 10-2 rout.
