Fresh off its spirited tie with Township, Clearview captured its first victory of the season defeating Timber Creek 3-2 at Hollydell on Friday night. Timber Creek scored the only goal of the first period just one minute into the game as Seth Pohle jumped on a loose puck and blasted home a shot. Clearview tied the game at 1-1 midway thru the second period as Joe Tropiano deposited a Shaun Stamm pass into the net. Later in the period, Stamm put Clearview ahead at 2-1 as he won a face-off and chipped the puck over the glove of goalie Chris Costa.
Matt Klanchar scored a power play goal early in the third period on a nice set-up from Chris McGoldrick and Joe Coghlan to give Clearview a 3-1 lead. A short-handed goal by Tom Szabo cut the lead to 3-2 but Timber Creek fell short and Clearview celebrated their first win.
