Thursday, Feb. 9

In a classic battle between a pair of playoff bound squads, it was the Rams eking out the win. James Rush’s power play goal 10:47 into the second period with assists from Trey Mikulich and Tyler Manto broke a 2-2 tie and gave the Rams a lead they would not lose. Andrew Lizak’s power play goal with an assist from Rush later in the period gave the Rams a 4-2 lead heading into the final period.
Max Gallagher’s short-handed goal with a Daniel McColgan assist 2:25 into the third period pulled the Redskins to within one, but that’s as close as they would get.
Early on, the two teams exchanged first period goals. Kevin Pico scored a power play goal, using assists from Colin Dachowski and Dane Fitchett, and Neshaminy’s DJ Harris got that back with an assist from AJ Dougherty.
Pico scored a short-handed goal with a Fitchett assist, and again, the Redskins answered with a goal by Gallagher (Daniel McColgan assist), setting the stage for the tightly contested finish.

For two periods, it looked as though one goal might win it as neither team could find the net. East kept itself in the game, thanks in no small part to the brilliant effort of Matt Mangiacapre in goal. The Golden Hawks held a 38-8 advantage in shots during the first two period, but Mangiacapre negated that advantage with his superb performance, turning away all 38 shots he faced.
The Golden Hawks finally got on the scoreboard 6:25 into the third period when Kevin Koles found the net, using a Daniel Filippov assist. His second goal – this one unassisted – gave the Hawks a 2-0 lead. Jeremy Rayher (Ilya Kudzinau and Sam Reiter assists) and Jake Weiner both scored late goals for the 4-0 final.
