Chris Keyser scored four goals as Washington Township pounded St. John Neumann 10-3 on Friday night at Hollydell. Township jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first period and was simply too fast and too deep for Neumann. Marco Jordan set-up Kaiser in the opening moments to put Township up 1-0, then eleven seconds later after Kaiser was stopped on a breakaway. Sean Rainey put home the rebound to make it 2-0. Billy Choy found Dave Moore in the slot to increase the lead to 3-0, and Kaiser closed out the opening period with a late goal on a feed from T.J. Dispaldo.

The only goals of the second period were scored by Choy, first on a back-hander in the slot and then on a blast from just inside the blue line. Tom Lerro finally put Neumann on the board early in the third period to cut the lead to 6-1. That’s when Ray Sharkey responded for Township seconds later on a shot through a screen to put Township up 7-1. Jim French scored for Neumann to give them some life at 7-2. But Kaiser was sent in by Jordan on a short-handed breakaway and his goal sealed it at 8-2. Kyle Stokes and Kaiser with his fourth, sandwiched around a goal by Neumann’s Matt Plumley closed out the scoring.

Notes: Township has averaged over ten goals in their first three games, all victories. Next up is Paul VI, should be a good test for both teams.
