East Rutherford fell to conference front-runnner Chase, 4-0, to start the week, but Warren kept the game from really getting out of had making 22 saves.

Warren had another strong outing Wednesday against Kings Mountain making several tough saves as the Cavs tied the Mountaineers, 2-2.

It wasn't a win, but as Warren was heard saying after the game, "it's better than a loss."
