Andrew Carsusone scored two goals and Doug Akin added a goal and two assists as Williamstown defeated Eastern 6-3 in Tier 1 action played at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. Dan Drazen scored all three goals for Eastern. The Vikings jumped out early in the game as Drazen scored a power play goal two minutes into the game. But that lead was short-lived as Williamstown responded with goals by Mike Mathews and Justin Osterdahl to take a 2-1 lead after the first period. Carsusone put home a rebound of a shot by Josh Haynes midway through the second period to put Williamstown ahead 3-1 and Akin added a goal just beating the buzzer at the end of the period for a 4-1 margin.
After Drazen got an early goal to cut the lead to 4-2, goals by Carsusone and Dennis Cunard built the lead to 6-2, Drazen added a late goal for the 6-3 final. Williamstown launched a team record 63 shots and Eastern goalie Mike Dougherty, despite giving up six goals played well in nets for the Vikings.
