Facing elimination and an end to their season, Clearview rallied from a 3-0 first period deficit and defeated Rancocas Valley 4-3 at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. Goals by Kevin Lion, Shane Veight and Kyle Smith in a span of two minutes gave Rancocas the lead at 3-0 midway through then first period. Clearview would chip away at the lead; first Timmy Sullivan scored a power play goal with the assist going to Shaun Stamm. Moments later those two would assist on Chris McGoldrick’s goal to cut the lead to 3-2 after two periods.
Clearview started the third period realizing their season would be over if they didn’t score at least two goals. Well in the opening seconds Andrew Michael got the equalizer and suddenly we were tied at 3-3. Goalie Adam Wingate stopped all 13 shots in the period, but Rancocas went on the power play with less than four minutes remaining. With a chance to re-take the lead Rancocas instead surrendered a short-handed goal by Matt Klanchar, which proved to be the game winner.
