After jumping out to a 3-0 lead in the first period, Clearview needed an empty net goal by Jon Probe to secure a 4-2 win over Cherokee. Played in front of a sparse crowd on Friday night at Hollydell, Clearview dominated the first period playing to their strength, which is forechecking and speed. Mike Sullivan gave Clearview a 1-0 lead picking up a loose puck in the slot, after some good pressure to keep the puck in the zone. Late in the period with each team skating four skaters, Nick Vacarino threaded a pass to Chris Riggs, and his breakaway goal made it 2-0. Just over a minute later and still skating four aside, Probe setup Brian Smith in front and Clearview led 3-0 after the first period.
