Drew and his Riverview Ice Sharks returned to the ice to face off against the River Ridge Mustangs in the second game of today's double-header between the two teams.

Riverview got off the first shot of the game, but it was River Ridge that came back with the next 8 before the Ice Sharks could get off another shot of their own. Thankfully the Ice Sharks goaltender was up to the task, or this game could have gotten out of hand fast. In a near repeat of the earlier game, Drew once again opened the scoring for the Ice Sharks, getting off a wrister from the left side that found the back of the net, coming with just over five minutes remaining. Also like the last game, the second goal of the period followed soon after the first, only this time it was the Mustangs that would find the back of the net. Their initial shot was stopped, but the Mustangs player lifted the rebound up and over the Ice Sharks goaltender to knot the game at a goal apiece with just over four minutes remaining. That would be it for the scoring, and the Ice Sharks were lucky to head into the intermission tied despite being outshot 15 to 2 in the period.

The shots were nearly even in the second period, but it was the Mustangs who would score the only goal of the period, with a battle in front of the net resulting in the puck being banged into the Ice Sharks net with just under three minutes remaining. There wasn't much else of note to report on in this period, and the 2-1 score was in favor of River Ridge heading into the final intermission.

The third period started off with a bang, as a Riverview tripping penalty led to a River Ridge penalty shot. The Ice Sharks goaltender was up to the task, making the save thanks to a timely poke-check that knocked the puck away from the Mustangs shooter. With that bullet dodged, the Ice Sharks would find their answer and tie the game up at 2-2 just three minutes in. Drew would start the play with a nice pass that led to another pass and finally an easy tip-in goal. Unfortunately the Ice Sharks weren't able to hold on to the lead, as the River Ridge team got a near 3v0 breakaway to retake the lead with seven minutes remaining. Riverview would outshoot the Mustangs 5-2 to close out the period, but they couldn't manage the tying goal that they needed, and would fall in this contest by a 3-2 score.
