Teams: Airdrie Xtreme —5
At: Calgary Northstar Sabres — 1
   
Synopsis: The Sabres got out to a quick start as Riley Whittingham put his team on the board 28 seconds into the game with a nice shot coming down the right side. The Sabres followed Whittingham’s goal by dominating the first period, outshooting the Xtreme 15-4. Goalie James Fisk of the Xtreme stood tall, not allowing another goal in the period, while his teammate Erik Pedersen was able to score on the power play and even the score.

In the second the Xtreme flipped the coin on the Sabres when Torrin White scored 21 seconds into the period to give the Xtreme their first lead of the game. They never looked back. Both teams played fairly aggressive offensive games but neither was able to put any more points on the board.

The Xtreme looked like a different team in the third as they came out flying. In a two and a half minute span the Xtreme scored three goals to jump out to a 5-1 lead. That was all they needed and took the win.

   
Top Performers: Airdrie Xtreme :
10 Torrin White (F) — Torrin White played a great all around game. He led the Xtreme on the score sheet with a goal, the game winner, and an assist. Torrin also had three big hits including one on Sabres Jesse Lees that made an impact on the play. Torrin plays an aggressive style that helps him be effective at both ends on the ice.
   
  Calgary Northstar Sabres :
19 Riley Whittingham (F) — Riley got the Sabres off to a flying start with his speed and accurate shot. He helped his team dominate the first using these skills along with his puck handling abilities. Throughout the rest of the game Riley was one of the few bright spots in the Sabres lineup as he had some good scoring chances and also helped setup his line mates for their own scoring opportunities.
