Drew and his Riverview Ice Sharks teammates returned to the Tampa Bay Skating Academy in Oldsmar tonight, this time to take on the Steinbrenner Warriors.

Things were going the Ice Sharks way early, as they would find themselves on a power play just forty five seconds, thanks to a Warriors cross check. Unfortunately they weren't able to take advantage of the extra attacker, despite getting four good looks on net. The Riverview team did break through with a spinning backhand, making it a 1-0 game with a little over eight and half to play in the period. The Ice Sharks would go back on the power play with six and a half to play thanks to another cross checking penalty, but once again they couldn't take advantage. A breakaway with just twenty seconds remaining would give Riverview a 2-0 lead thanks to a shot that went up and over the Steinbrenner goaltender. That would be the score when the period came to a close.

Riverview got on the board first in the second period, thanks to another breakaway goal that went over the Warriors goalie's blocker, making it a 3-0 Ice Sharks lead with just over eleven minutes to play. Things took a turn for the worse shortly after that for the Ice Sharks, as the Warriors would come storming back. They would fire a pass through the crease that they were able to tap in for their first goal of the game with seven and a half to play in the period. A little over a minute later the Steinbrenner squad was find themselves with a 2 on 0 breakaway, which they converted to make it a 3-2 game. Almost ninety seconds later they would fire a wrist shot home through the Riverview five-hole to tie the score at three goals apiece. Despite giving up a three goal lead, the Ice Sharks stormed right back with a goal of their just twenty seconds later to reclaim the lead by a 4-3 margin. Their lead wouldn't last long, however, as they would give up another 2 on 0 breakaway that would lead to another goal with just eighty seconds to play in the period. Ten seconds after scoring the tying goal, the Warriors would find themselves shorthanded once again, thanks to yet another cross check. Riverview didn't get a shot off before the period would end, however.

Although Riverview would start the period on a power play, they weren't able to take advantage of the extra attacker. They would get another chance on the power play at the 12:23 mark, thanks to a Steinbrenner boarding penalty, but once they once again failed to score with the extra attacker. Steinbrenner would be called for yet another penalty with a little over nine minutes to play, thanks to a slashing call. This time the Ice Sharks would make the most of their extra-man opportunity, tipping in a shot off of a faceoff win to make it a 5-4 game with a little under eight minutes to play. Their lead was short lived, however, as Steinbrenner would find the back of the net on a wrist shot that found its way through the five hole, knotting the score at five goals each. With a little over six minutes to play Riverview would find themselves in a big hole, as they would take two penalties at once, getting called for an elbow as well as a high stick, putting two Ice Sharks players in the box at the same time and handing the Warriors a full two-minute power play. With the momentum seemingly on the Steinbrenner side, this was a "hold your breath" moment for the Ice Sharks and their fans. Thankfully they would manage to kill off both penalties, keeping the score 5-5 with a little over four minutes to play. Riverview would get the final three shots of the game, but they weren't able to score on any of them, and the game would come to an end with the two teams tied.
