|Teams:||Vancouver NE Chiefs — 6|
|At:||Carolina Jr. Hurricanes — 5|
|Synopsis:||Good back and forth action in the first period. The Hurricanes opened the scoring less than a minute in on a goal by Alex Oury. Within a 6 minute span near the end of the period both teams exploded for a total of five goals, sending the game to the second tied at three.
The Hurricanes played much longer shifts than the Chiefs, and it starts to show midway through the second. The Chiefs badly outplayed the Hurricanes, outshooting them 12-6, but still could only manage to come out of the period tied. The score, 5-5 this time around.
The third period saw the Chiefs continue to control the pace. Zack Henry scored his third goal of the game six minutes into the period and that was all the Chiefs would need. The Hurricanes battles hard until the end but couldn’t find the back of the net in the third as the Chiefs take the game 6-5.
Vancouver NE Chiefs
8 Zack Henry (F) — Zack is a shifty player who used his speed and hockey smarts in this game to create offensive opportunities. Three of these opportunities resulted in goals for Zack, including the game winner. Zack has natural offensive talent and scoring ability.
Carolina Jr. Hurricanes
9 Ryan Fitzgerald (F) — Ryan played a solid all around game. His style of play is frustrating to deal with. Ryan is an in your face grinder with good offensive upside. In this game he was a spark plug for his team finishing hits, creating offensive chances and his all around aggressive play.
