Cross-town rivals meet on the ice Friday.

The Fort Dorchester Hockey Club hosts Summerville at 7:30 p.m. at the Carolina Ice Palace in North Charleston. The game is a rematch of a Nov. 15 contest that saw the Patriots earn a 5-2 victory over the Green Wave.

The Fort is the defending champion for the South Carolina Scholastic Hockey Association, but is doing some rebuilding this year. The Patriots got out to a 4-5 start but could set themselves up for a favorable playoff seed with victories in their four remaining regular season games.

Chandler Murphy, who scored 15 goals in the first nine games and made 7 assists, leads the Patriot offense. Danny Rowland, with 8 goals and 8 assists, is the Fortís second leading scorer. Other major contributors on offense include Zach Potter (4 goals/3 assists), Austin Stahl (2/4), Kyle Long (3/3) and Dylan Belida (1/7).

Ean Hickam is the Patriotsí goalie. He has 228 saves on the season for a 0.826 save percentage.

The Summerville Hockey Club won its season opener against Stratford, but then lost its next eight games. It too has four games remaining.

Curtis Hartman leads the Green Wave in points with 6 goals and 2 assists. Nick Wieszkowiak has 5 goals and 2 assists and Ben Sleeper has 3 goals and 4 assists. Other major contributors on offense include Tanner Price (2/3), Daniel Seyler (1/2) and Callum Smyth (2/1).

Peyton McDonald is the Green Wave goalie. He has 269 saves on the season for a 0.823 save percentage.

The Bishop England/Porter-Gaud team is currently in first place for the hockey league. Greenville South is only a game behind.

Trailing in the standings are Stratford, Greenville North, Wando, Lexington, Fort Dorchester and Summerville.
