Drew and his Riverview Ice Sharks returned to the ice after an unscheduled week off following the Hurricane Ian postponement from last week. The game got off to a bit of a slow start, as neither team managed to get a shot on goal for the first three minutes of the opening period. It took a George Jenkins roughing penalty for the pace to finally pick up. Riverview fired two pucks on net during their power play opportunity, but couldn't score on either chance. Shortly after their power play opportunity expired, the Ice Sharks found themselves in the box thanks to a holding call. Despite being down a skater, they continued to attack - preventing the Eagles from getting a single shot on goal, while managing to take four shorthanded shots themselves. Again, neither team was able to take advantage. Finally, with just under four minutes to play in the period, Riverview broke through, scoring the games opening goal. This one came on a rebound that the Ice Sharks were able to tip into the net, giving them a 1-0 lead. Jenkins would take another roughing penalty, this one with 48 seconds to play, but they couldn't add to their lead before the period came to an end. The Ice Sharks would outshoot the Eagles by a 16-3 margin, but held just a 1-0 lead.

In stark contrast to the first period, the second got off to a fast start - Riverview would score just 13 seconds in on a shot that trickled towards the goal and found its way under the Eagles goaltenders pads, giving them a 2-0 lead. The George Jenkins squad continued to find themselves on the wrong side of the whistle, taking another roughing penalty just 30 seconds after giving up the second Riverview goal. The Ice Sharks weren't able to add to their lead on this power play opportunity, but they would get another chance thanks to a hooking call with a little over nine minutes to play. Riverview got off a nice shot that was saved by the Jenkins goaltender, but Drew was in front setting a screen and was able to corral the rebound, and patiently waited as the goalie continued his slide across the crease before depositing the puck in the back of the net for a power play goal and a 3-0 lead. Riverview would find themselves shorthanded next, thanks to a 2+10 roughing call where the offending player left his feet, resulting in a major penalty. The Ice Sharks would kill that penalty as well, giving up a single shot on goal during their time down a man. With just over 51 seconds to go the Riverview team would add to their lead, making it a 4-0 game on a delayed penalty call thanks to another rebound that they were able to fire into the net on a slap shot. That would be the score at the end of period number two.

The third period saw the ice tilt towards the Eagles end, as they finally managed to outshoot the Ice Sharks. They got the first three shots of the period in a 44 second span, then went down a man thanks to a slashing penalty. Riverview would manage three straight power play shots, but couldn't score on any of them. Riverview would find themselves down a man with just over ten minutes to go, thanks to a hooking call on Drew. Despite giving up several shots while Drew served his time, the Riverview goaltender stood tall, making several key stops. Drew would find himself in the box once again just a little over a minute after getting out of the box, this time thanks to a slashing call. Again, the Eagles would fire the puck at the net, but couldn't break through the Ice Sharks goaltending, and would come up empty on the scoreboard once again. With three and a half minutes remaining in the period Riverview would find themselves on a breakaway, and a nice deke got the goaltender to move out of position and resulted in a "layup" of a goal, and a 5-0 Riverview lead, on just their fourth shot of the period. That would be it for scoring, as the game would end with that same 5-0 score. For the game, the Ice Sharks would hold the edge in shots on goal, by a 39-20 margin.

The victory was the Ice Sharks fifth of the season, keeping them undefeated and in first place. Way to go Riverview!
