Teams: Calgary Royals Gold — 3
At: Calgary Bisons — 5
   
Synopsis: A very evenly played first period. Morgan Klimchuk of the Bisons opened the scoring with about six minutes left on a beautiful second effort, which saw him score from his stomach. Less than three minutes later Mitch Collett of the Royals created a turnover at the blue line and then broke in on goal to tie the game at one.

The Royals took control of the action in the second period but were unable to take the lead from the Bisons. The teams traded goals in a period that saw both teams struggle with giving up the puck.

Both teams picked up the pace to start the third period and were rewarded with quality chances. The Bisons got stronger as the period went on and John Edwardh scored the game winner with five minutes to play. Brayden Point added an empty netter to seal the win.

   
Top Performers: Calgary Royals Gold :
18 Jared Rollock (F) — Jared plays a physical game, he likes to hit. Not usually the leader on the score sheet, Jared scored two goals to keep his team in the game. His scoring of late is the secondary scoring that the Royals need to put together some wins heading into the playoffs.
   
  Calgary Bisons :
11 Morgan Klimchuk (F) — Morgan had a great game overall. The goal he scored in the first showed his drive to score. Morgan beat a forward and a defenceman before being knocked to the ice and sliding the puck under Will Heseltine while lying on his stomach. Throughout the rest of the game Morgan created many scoring opportunities, while also being very defensively responsible. Morgan plays a very well rounded game.
