Downingtown West 2 @ WC Bayard Rustin 3

Bonner 4 @ Kennett 14

St. Joseph’s 2 @ Cardinal O’Hara 3 (NL)

Avon Grove 1 @ WC Henderson 3

Admission during last Tuesday’s All-Star game day at Ice Line was free to all fans who attended a game except for the Central/Ches-Mont contest. Known as the “Hunger Game,” a fee was charged because the proceeds were donated to the food banks in Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties.

“We love doing this” said Haverford High head coach John Povey, who was one of the coaches for the Central team. “All of the players who participate in this game are selected by the opposing coaches in the division. It’s an honor for them to play in it – not only on the ice but off it. The players know their efforts are a big part of giving back to the community” concluded Povey.

This was the fifth year for the Hunger Game, which Central won 9 – 6. This year’s game raised over $500 and more than $2,500 has been raised in total during the five years.

“We are very proud of the fact that we are giving back to the community” stated Povey. “But we can’t do it by ourselves. We would like to thank Ice Line for providing the ice for free and all of the officials who donated their services as well” said Povey.

Despite the loss, Ches-Mont has a 3 – 2 edge during the annual all-star game. The real winners are the less fortunate in the local counties. 

Downingtown East 4 @ Unionville 2
Downingtown East’s forward Andrew Ceglia scored on a snap shot from the top of the circle with 1:59 remaining in the game to snap a 2 – 2 tie with Unionville to give the Cougars a 4 – 2 win. The Indians opened the scoring just 1:01 into the game on a Nolan Masters goal. A minute and a half later the Cougars Ryan Johnston would tie it. Downingtown East would take the lead on Ceglia’s first goal of the game just 1:37 into the middle stanza. Stevie Cicchino would knot the score at 2 when he hit the back of the net with 4:11 left in the second. With time winding down in the third period, Ceglia broke in the Indians zone and beat Unionville’s Keegan Craig glove side to give the Cougars the 3 – 2 lead with 1:59 left in the game. Downingtown East would score an empty net insurance goal with sixteen seconds left in the game. Matt Shandler stopped 36 of 38 shots in the win while Craig turned aside 25 of 28.

Appoquinimink 8 @ Marple-Newtown 2
