Anthony DeSimone netted a hat trick and Cory Jackmuff and Steve DeCeasar added two goals as West Deptford defeated Black Horse 9-5 in Tier 2 action at Hollydell. Black Horse skate with only eight players and rallied in the third period, but just ran out of gas. DeSimone scored the only goal of the first period as he hustled on a loose puck in the slot and beat the goalie to the puck and had an empty net to deposit the puck. Joe Sauer tied the game early in the second period for Black Horse scoring the first of his two goals, but West Deptford scored two goals over the next five minutes, one on a blast by JT Flood to take a 3-1 lead. Sauer cut the lead to 3-2, but DeCeasar put West Deptford ahead 4-2 scoring the first of his two goals.
The lead grew to 6-2, but two goals by Jim Pivito for Black Horse sandwiched between a goal by DeCeasar, had the lead at just 7-5 with just under two minutes left in the game. But goals by Jackmuff and DeSimone’s third of the game iced the 9-5 victory.
