Apparently I am a bad-luck charm when I attend the games. Not so much for the team, as the outcomes have all been the same whether I have been there or not, but for Drew personally. The last game I attended he only stepped foot on the ice four shifts, some of which were very short. Tonight, he only managed five shifts, with only one of those coming in the first.

Speaking of the first, there isn't a lot to report on for the opening fifteen minutes. As I said, Drew only got the one shift, and I'm not certain why. From a team perspective, not much happened. Neither side was able to score, though the Eagles heavily outshot the Ice Sharks - 14-3. Despite being outshot by such a wide margin, the period would come to a close with neither team able to find the back of the net.

The second period seemed like it was going to be a mirror of the first, as the Eagles once again dominated the puck, but neither team able to break the ice and score. With just under 90 seconds remaining the Jenkins squad finally broke through, deflecting in a long shot from the blue line to grab a 1-0 lead. That goal would be the only one in the middle 15:00, with the Jenkins Eagles taking a 1-0 lead into the final period.

Things kind of fell apart for the Ice Sharks in the third, despite the Eagles taking a penalty just 30 seconds in. That did give the Riverview team some life, as they managed the first five shots of the period. They couldn't take advantage of the power play or the shot advantage, though. With just over twelve minutes remaining the Eagles doubled their lead to 2-0 on a backhand shot off of a long rebound. Riverview would get the next penalty with just under ten minutes to go, and less than 30 seconds into their power play the Eagles would make it a 3-0 game. Another penalty followed a minute later, this time putting the Ice Sharks on the power play. They finally managed to convert on a man advantage, tipping in a rebound to make it a 3-1 contest. The final five minutes were crazy, and the Ice Sharks should have been able to get back into the game thanks to two Jenkins penalties. Wouldn't you know it, it was the Eagles who would end up on the positive end despite being shorthanded on the ice. 30 seconds after taking a penalty they would tap in the puck following a scrum in front of the net. The second Eagles penalty led to a two-man advantage for the Ice Sharks, as they would pull their goaltender in an attempt to narrow the gap further. Unfortunately with just over three minutes remaining the Eagles would manage to net an empty net goal, making it a 5-1 game. That would be it for the scoring, as the Ice Sharks never even got another shot on net. Better luck next game, Ice Sharks!
