East clinched the Tier 2 Championship, their fourth in a row

Trailing 3-1 with three minutes left in the third period, Cherry Hill scored twice in the final two minutes to tie the game, then one in the first two minutes of overtime as they defeated Clearview 4-3 and clinched the Tier 2 Championship, their fourth in a row. Mario Leone scored the only goal of the first period as Clearview led 1-0. Midway through the second period Hunter Colella made it 2-0 and the View, despite being outshot, looked to take that lead into the third period, but Elliott Schon would get the first of his two on the night with just 38 seconds left in the period and suddenly it was 2-1. Thomas Rockey would restore the two-goal lead for Clearview at the six-minute mark and a 3-1 lead. 

Tristan Laperriere would cut the lead to 3-2 with less than three minutes left in regulation and in the final minute Schon would get the equalizer and send the game to overtime. With all the momentum, Cherry Hill would score early as Cameron Dailey would get his first goal of the playoffs and one he will remember as it was the game winner just ninety seconds in. Congratulations to Coach Busler and his staff.
