Drew and his Riverview Ice Sharks got off to a quick start in tonight's contest against the Durant Cougars, despite being shorthanded due to several players being out of town for the travel team's tournaments. The Ice Sharks scored on their first shot of the game just a little over two minutes in on a nice shot from between the circles that was deflected into the Durant net for a 1-0 lead. Almost 90 seconds later they would make it a 2-0 lead after pouncing on a rebound and knocking it home. The ice definitely tilted in favor of the Cougars at that point, as they would manage the next thirteen shots on goal, and converting on numbers 11 and 12 of those shots. The first came on a wrist shot from the right circle with a little over two and a half to play and the tying goal happening just eleven seconds later on a tip in goal right in front of the net. Just like that, the lead was gone. It looked as though we may be headed to the first intermission tied 2-2, but the Cougars grabbed a rebound and tapped in into the Riverview goal with just 2.9 seconds left, making it a 3-2 deficit for the Ice Sharks.

The second period was once again dominated by the Durant skaters, as they held a 16-5 lead in shots on goal. Somehow, some way the Ice Sharks managed to keep them off the board and the game close at 3-2 until the final whistle blew, signaling the second intermission.

The third period started well for Riverview, as they got the first goal on a wrist shot up and over the Durant goaltender just over a minute in, knotting the score at three goals apiece. Unfortunately their lead lasted only fifty seconds, as the Cougars pounded the net with shots before finally knocking home a rebound to regain their lead at 4-3. They would take a 5-3 lead with a little under eleven and a half to play as a Durant forward skating through the entire Riverview squad and scored and easy goal in close. It became a 6-3 game with nine minutes to play after grabbing yet another rebound and scoring a goal in close. Durant's 7th goal came after Drew blocked the initial shot, only to have the puck go straight to an open Cougars skater who was able to fire home a shot from between the circles, giving them a four goal lead with four minutes to play. Riverview would tack on an additional goal with a little over a minute to play after a nice pass to the crease that resulted in an easy tip in goal and a 7-5 score. That would wind up being the final score, as the Ice Sharks fell to the Cougars.
