Period Length

14:00 13:00 7:00  


With two games postponed earlier this week, we were all expecting the weekend off. At the last minute, a game was rescheduled for this morning, bright and early.

Apparently that early start time was just a bit too early for the Riverview Ice Sharks, as the Durant Cougars jumped out to an early 1-0 lead just 42 seconds into the contest. The Cougars dominated the action, but the shots on goal were few and far between. In fact, the next shot on goal also resulted in a score, and it happened at the 11:41 mark of the period, off of a Riverview stick, knotting the score at 1-1. Unfortunately the tied score didn't last very long, as the Cougars would score less than 40 seconds later, giving them a 2-1 lead that would last until the end of the period.

The second period wasn't a good one for the Sharks, despite dominating in the shot category early on. They couldn't get one past the Cougars goaltender before the Durant team was able to widen their lead, making it 3-1 a little over four minutes in. About three minutes later the gap got even bigger, as Durant was able to tack on yet another goal, making it a 4-1 game. Riverview took a couple of undisciplined penalties after that - one a 2+10, and the other for shooting the puck on net after the whistle), but fortunately they were able to kill both of those off.

Heading into the third period down by a 4-1 score, the Ice Sharks would have to kick it into high gear if they hoped to mount a comeback. Thankfully they got off to a fast start, scoring a shorthanded goal just 19 seconds in to narrow the gap to a 4-2 margin. They out-shot the Cougars by a 9-1 margin in this period, but wouldn't score again until just over a minute remained in the game, thanks to a Durant penalty and an extra attacker from an empty net. The 6v4 advantage led to a 4-3 game, and time to knot things up. Unfortunately they weren't able to gain possession in the offensive zone, and they would fall by that 4-3 margin. Next time, Sharks!
