I was forced to miss the beginning of the double-header opener between the Riverview Ice Sharks and the River Ridge Mustangs due to work.

The disappointing thing for me was that it was Drew who opened up the scoring for the Ice Sharks, getting the puck behind the Mustangs goaltender on a slap shot with just under four and a half minutes remaining in the opening period. After going nearly nine minutes without a goal, the Ice Sharks would score their second of the period just 27 seconds after the first, giving them a 2-0 lead. Despite a couple of penalties to close out the period - 2+10's for each team, the Ice Sharks would maintain their lead heading into the first intermission.

There was more penalties early in the second period, but neither side was able to take advantage of their extra-man opportunities. It wasn't until there was just over five minutes remaining that the scoring started up again. First, the Ice Sharks found themselves in a 2v1 break that, thanks to a nice pass resulted in the puck finding it's way into the net through the 5-hole. The 3-0 Riverview lead didn't last long, however, as the Mustangs would answer back with a breakaway of their own thanks to an Ice Sharks defensive miscue. They would tip the puck in behind the Riverview goaltender to narrow their deficit to two and make it a 3-1 score. Riverview would kill off one final penalty in the period before the two sides would head to the final intermission.

There wasn't much action in the third period, as the clock was running the entire time. Riverview carried the play in their end for most of the frame, but they weren't able to score. The two teams had offsetting penalties towards the end of the period, but in this case it was no harm, no foul. When the final buzzer blew, it was the Riverview Ice Sharks who walked away with a 3-1 victory. Go Sharks!
