In a tight checking game, the skaters of Washington Township defeated Rancocas Valley by a score of 1-0 to win the South Jersey High School Ice Hockey League JV-A Championship. The game was played at Hollydell Ice Arena and concluded a season that saw the Township's skaters accumulate a 23-3-5 record, a 1st place finish and the post season Championship.

Washington Township's skaters fired 6 shots on Rancocas Valley's goalie in the 1st period, 18 in the 2nd period and 18 more in the final period, until Adam Zaccaria (assist by Manny Suriel) scored the only goal of the game with 46 seconds remaining in regulation time. Andrew McGinn was in goal for Township and stopped all 16 shots he faced.

Congratulations to coach Will Brown and the players.
