Teams: Calgary Bronks — 3

Synopsis: Some very good action in the first period with quite a few momentum changes throughout. The Bronks started the period very strong but by the end of the frame it was the Bisons who were dominant. Both goalies were perfect in the period with Coleman Vollrath of the Bisons really standing out making 15 saves.

The physical play picked up in the second. Brayden Pointe opened the scoring for the Bisons with 9:10 to go in the period. The Bronks responded minutes later when Jared Hauf blasted a shot from the point that found its way to the back of the net. Coleman Vollrath came up big again in the second particularly in the dying minutes of the period to keep the score tied at one.

In the third both teams keep came out looking to gain the lead resulting in good end to end action. The Bisons struck midway through the third on a goal by Jay Merkley. Cole Ully of the Bronks evened the score less than two minutes later, and then with about six minutes left he scored the winner. The Bisons fought hard but were unable to tie the score and the Bronks held on for the 3-2 win. The victory leapfrogs the Bronks into first place ahead of the Bisons by one point in the Challenger South division.

   
Top Performers: Calgary Bronks :
12 Cole Ully (F) — Cole Ully was a big factor in the win for the Bronks in this game. Not only did he score both the tying and winning goals but he provided a spark all game for his team. All game long Cole used his speed to open up the ice and create offensive chances. Cole has the ability to find the open areas on the ice and make himself an offensive weapon.
   
  Calgary Bisons :
1 Coleman Vollrath (G) — Despite getting the loss, Coleman had an outstanding game. If not for some big saves in the second under huge pressure the game would not have been tied going into the third. Again in the third Coleman found himself under fire but his poise and control under pressure took over. His calm demeanour allowed him to get into the right position to make some big saves at big times. Coleman played very well under pressure.
