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.
Also in the Olympic American, Eastern senior goaltender Cory Brodkin made two saves in the last 10 seconds to hold off a Cherokee rally and preserve a 1-0 win.
Brodkin made seven saves for his fourth shutout in the past five games. All four have been wins.
Cherokee goaltender Anthony Cutillo matched Brodkin through the first half and most of the second. But with 20 minutes remaining, senior Chris Slaven sent a pass into the zone from midfield, and Cutillo came out of the box. When he did, Eastern senior Nelson Jerez gained possession of the pass and lobbed it over Cutillo's head and into the net.
Cherokee made a late flurry, but Brodkin denied the Chiefs the chance of overtime.
Cape-Atlantic. Atlantic City senior captain Akwasi Adu led a furious second-half rally to complete a 4-3 win at Mainland.
The Mustangs took a 3-1 lead into halftime thanks to two goals by Nick Sarkos and one by Alexander Nhan. Adu scored one in the first half to keep the game within reach.
In the second half, Atlantic City came out with an offensive outburst. The Vikings scored three times in a span of 14 minutes to take the lead.
Adu scored again in the 42d minute, and Alexis Mendoza tied it in the 46th. Adu then scored the winner in the 56th minute, and goaltender Juan Eligalde secured the lead from there. Both of Adu's second-half goals were assisted by Edras Palma.
In other Cape-Atlantic action, Hammonton went on the road and shut out Vineland, 1-0.
Junior Guyer Shane scored 18 minutes into the game on an assist from Dave Donio-Enscoe, and that proved to be all Hammonton would need. Andrew Slater made six saves for the shutout. Hammonton hasn't given up a goal in the past five games.
Olympic. Bishop Eustace senior Alec Palmieri broke a scoreless tie in the second half, and the defense held onto the 1-0 lead at Cherry Hill West.
With 34 minutes remaining, Palmieri ended up with the ball after a Lions turnover near midfield. He blasted it from 45 yards out, and the shot beat goaltender Sean Mullarkey to the top left corner. Crusaders goaltender Vince Maiorino stopped all 11 shots he faced to secure the shutout win.
Nonleague. Northern Burlington won, 3-0, at Moorestown Friends.
Senior David Cohen gave Northern Burlington the lead with goals in the 15th and 55th minutes. Moorestown Friends contributed an own goal in the last minute of the first half.
Zach Nixon and Kyle Quigley combined for a four-save shutout.
