Top-ranked Washington Township falls

Cherry Hill East went toe-to-toe with Washington Township all through the first half Wednesday. Then in the second half, the Cougars took over and pulled off an upset of The Inquirer's top-ranked South Jersey boys' soccer team.

Three players scored in the first half for the Minutemen, but the Cougars countered with two goals from forward Zach Steinbock and one from Jake Faford en route to a 5-3 victory. 

With the score tied at intermission, Cherry Hill East made a change in goal for the second half. Senior Steve Oblander came in to play goalie in an attempt to slow the Minutemen attack. He did just that. Township fired 13 shots at him, and he stopped all of them.

Andrew Adler and Greg Weinstock found the back of the net to give Cherry Hill East a 5-3 lead, and Oblander continued to frustrate and deny Township until the final whistle. 

It was only the second loss of the season for the Minutemen (7-2-1 overall, 2-2-1 league), who slipped to second place in the Olympic Conference American Division, behind Lenape.
