This was the first of two junior varsity games to be played today, both against the Wiregrass Bulls. After playing to a tie in last night's opening JV game, the Ice Sharks were ready to get in the "W" column today...

The game started out with the ice tilted in favor of the Riverview squad. They got the first three shots on goal, including one from Drew, before the Bulls got their first shot. That would also turn out to be the final shot for the Wiregrass team this period, as the Ice Sharks would dominate the puck over the remainder of the time. Late in the period they would convert, on their 6th shot of the game, on a nice pass across the rink that was tapped in for a 1-0 lead. Moments later, they would score again on a nice rush to the net that resulted in a 2-0 lead that would last until the first intermission. They did get a power play opportunity to end the period, but only managed one shot and were unable to convert.

The second period was a lot like the first, as the Riverview squad dominated the puck. A series of Wiregrass penalties gave the Ice Sharks plenty of time on the power play, which helped their cause. Five and a half minutes in, the Ice Sharks finally broke through once again, this time on their second power play of the period. A mad scramble in front of the Wiregrass goal led to a lot of whacking at the puck, and one of the shots finally found the back of the net, giving Riverview a 3-0 lead. It took a little over four minutes, but Riverview once again found themselves on the scoreboard, this time on an even-strength goal that came from a nice pass from the right circle that was redirected in to the backside of an empty net for a 4-0 lead. Riverview potted one more goal before the end of the period, this one with less than 30 seconds left in the period. The goal resulted from a similar opportunity as above, with a pass from the right circle going to the other side of the net, which Drew was able to corral and tuck in to the corner of the goal for a 5-0 lead. Unfortunately the shutout opportunity ended with just 13 seconds left, as a Wiregrass shot trickled through the Riverview five-hole and barely over the line for their first goal of the game. The period would come to a close with the score 5-1 in favor of the Ice Sharks.

The third period was much more even, with Wiregrass holding the edge in shots on goal. They would score on their first shot of the period, just 40 seconds in thanks to a pass from the left side that they were able to tap in for a 5-2 score. Thankfully that would be it for the Wiregrass scoring, though the Ice Sharks wouldn't find the back of the net either. The 5-2 final score would give the Riverview team their first victory of the season. Way to go Ice Sharks!
