|Teams:||Calgary Bronks — 4|
|At:||Calgary Bisons — 5|
This was an action packed game from the start. Both teams came out hitting hard, and the referee was letting them play. The Bisons looked to take a 2-0 lead into the second, when Kurt Hildebrand snuck one past Coleman Vollrath with one second left in the first, to cut the lead in half.
As the second period started the physical play continued, however penalties were now a big issue for both clubs. Each had two separate 5 on 3’s in the second period. The biggest blow for the Bronks came when just over two minutes into the period Cole Ully was given a game misconduct for hitting from behind.
The Calgary Bronks proved to be a disciplined team as they didn’t take a single penalty in the third period while trying to erase a two goal, 4-2, deficit. The Bisons were just too much and held on for the 5-4 victory.
Brayden Point had two goals for the Bisons, while Kurt Hildebrand replied with two for the Bronks. With the win Coleman Vollrath has his fifth win in five starts this season.
4 Dillon Heatherington (D) — Dillon proved to be a leader on the Bronks during the penalty riddled second and third periods. Dillon was not only solid defensively but he also helped generated offense, chipping in for two assists. Dillon used his speed and mobility to make multiple end to end rushes throughout the game.
12 Jay Merkley (F) — Jay played another very good game. In the absence of Morgan Klimchuk (17 points in 7 games), Jay has stepped up his offense, adding a goal and an assist to his stats. When Jay heads up the ice on a rush he’s a smooth skater with good stick handling skills. Great puck control.
