Danny Meyers stopped 27 of 28 shots and Eastern defeated Council Rock 3-1 in varsity action at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. Coach Pontonio prior to the game said Eastern had never defeated Council Rock and was hoping to break that streak. Well thanks to Meyers and some excellent penalty kills, its time to start a new streak. With the Vikings down a man, senior defenseman Joe DiLauro broke into the zone and ripped a shot on net that was deflected by Robert Nevitt to give the Vikings a 1-0 lead.

Meyers made several stops from in tight and kept Council Rock frustrated most of the night. Late in the second period Bryan Schellenhammer busted up the middle and his quick wrist shot made it 2-0, with assists to Anthony Orner and Sean Sullivan. Late in the period Council Rock had a two-man advantage for thirty seconds and a man advantage that spilled over into the final stanza but Meyers stood tall.
