Washington Township flew past Rancocas Valley 11-2 as Joe Gori scored three goals, Steve Brown added two goals and three assists to pace the balance scoring attack of the Minutemen as they continue their quest for the title and remained undefeated in league play. Buddy Anderson chipped in with two goals and two assists and Adam Zaccaria added two goals. Kyle Tuliano and Van Daele scored the goals for Rancocas. The game was scoreless for the first seven minutes as Township looked to gather its legs. But once Township started scoring, they just come at you in waves.

Anderson opened the scoring as he blasted one from the point to make it 1-0. Right from the face-off, Zaccaria sped in and scored short side to make it 2-0. Thirty seconds later, Pete Laman picked up a loose puck in the slot and fired home a quick wrist shot and all of a sudden it was 3-0. The next three goal burst took almost three minutes to complete, as Tom Davies, Steven Brown and a power play goal from Gori in the last thirty seconds of the period made it 6-0. Township launched twenty five shots and headed into the second period in total command.

Goals by Gori, Brown and Zaccaria made it 9-0 after two periods and with the mercy rule, the clock was running the entire third period and Township advances with the 11-2 win.
