Chris McGoldrick scored three times and Shaun Stamm and Matt Klanchar added two goals as Clearview defeated Rancocas Valley 9-3 in Tier 1 action at Hollydell. McGoldrick put Clearview ahead just over two minutes into the game but Rancocas tied the game as Kurt Sporer scored with the assist going to Eric Bitzer. Clearview would score the next four goals to take control, including the first goal of the season for sophomore defenseman Tim Sullivan. Leading 5-1, Rancocas got a goal from Joe Fleming to cut the lead to 5-2, but goals by McGoldrick and Stamm, one on the power play and one short-handed put Clearview ahead 7-2. A late goal by Kevin Lion made it 7-3 heading into the third period, but goals by McGoldrick and Stamm sealed the win.
Notes: After a dismal start, Clearview is 4-1-1 in their last six games and now stand at 5-6-2, thanks in a large part to their senior leadership of Stamm and McGoldrick.
