Drew and his Riverview Ice Sharks teammates returned to the ice for their first game in three weeks, this time to take on the team from Tampa Catholic. The game got off to a rough start, as the Tampa squad scored the games opening goal just 34 seconds in, after tipping in a rebound. Those few seconds led to an initial impression that the Ice Sharks were in for a long night, but they came back with a goal of their own just 33 seconds later to tie the game at 1-1. Tampa would retake the lead at the 8:20 mark, making it a 2-1 game. Riverview would tie the game once again three minutes later, thanks to a nice pass into the crease that was backhanded into the net. With just under three minutes to play in the opening period, Tampa was called for a cross-checking penalty, and the Riverview team took advantage just 12 seconds into the powerplay, thanks to a shot that went behind the net, bounced back out front, and was lifted up and over the goaltender, giving the Ice Sharks their first lead of the game with a 3-2 score. That would be it for the opening period, with the Ice Sharks holding their lead into the first intermission.

The second period got off to a rough start for the Ice Sharks once again, though this time it took a little longer. 90 seconds into the game the Tampa squad scored after getting three straight shots on net, with the Riverview goaltender making two great saves before the puck finally settled into the back of the net, knotting the score at three goals. That was it for scoring in the period, though the Tampa Catholic team held a wide lead in shots on goal. We would head into the final period with score tied at 3-3.

Tampa took another penalty just 70 seconds into the period, but instead of taking advantage of the extra man on the ice, the Riverview Ice Sharks instead gave up a shorthanded goal and fell behind even further. With just under six and a half minutes to play the Riverview deficit grew even larger, as the Tampa side scored on a wrist shot that found the back of the net, making it a 5-3 game. With just over five minutes to play the Ice Sharks answered back, thanks to a nice pass to the front of the net that was tipped into the net and narrowed the gap to 5-4. Tampa would score once again with just over three and a half to play on another wrist shot, as they regained their two-goal lead. Shortly after that Tampa goal the Ice Sharks were called for a penalty, putting them down a man while being down two goals. Thankfully they were able to kill off the penalty, and even managed to get three shorthanded shots on goal during the two minute time frame. The Riverview team did not give up, and just 6 seconds after the penalty expired they scored on a wrist shot of their own, closing the gap to 6-5 with just over a minute to play. 17 seconds later Drew would find the back of the net after gathering in the puck in front of the goaltender and flipping it up and over to tie the game at 6 goals apiece. Tampa Catholic would get the last two shots on goal of the game, but they were unable to score, and the game would end in a tie, thanks to the dramatic comeback from the Ice Sharks. Great job boys!
