Looking at the schedule before the regular season began, the Rancocas Valley versus Moorestown match-up was an anticipated competition waiting to happen. The Burlington County Liberty Division defending champions Red Devils from Rancocas Valley were looking to repeat again, as long as they could prove they could get by their division rivals Quakers from Moorestown. Both teams have their "go to" players, but in this game, there are other players who come up big providing a way to win. Michael Koneschusky and Luke Calvano both score giving Moorestown the 2-0 victory.

So far this season, the Quakers have struggled a bit at the start of the season. But it's still early. On the other side of the situation, Rancocas has taken advantage of their situations by winning those important games to stay ahead of the pack. First year head coach Damon Petraas has been enjoying the success the Red Devils have been having.

Both keepers in this game had their share of saves as both teams were looking for ways of getting that first goal. The Red Devils would finally break this scoreless game. Koneschusky's goal was the only score of the first half and Rancocas led at the half. Adding to their lead, Calvano scored giving the Red Devils a comfortable lead they are able to hold onto.
