Drew and his Riverview Ice Sharks teammates travelled to Oldsmar tonight to take on the Palm Harbor University Hurricane. Things got off to a good start for the Ice Sharks, as they pounced on the rebound of their own shot and tapped in into the goal for a 1-0 lead not even three minutes in. There wasn't a lot of action after that, as the two teams spent a lot of time getting a feel for each other on the ice. It wasn't until just under the six minute mark that another event took place, and that was the first of three consecutive Hurricane penalties to end the period. They would be called for interference this time, then for elbowing with just under four to play, and finally they followed those two up with a two minute penalty for checking from behind and a ten minute game misconduct call for the hit with just under two minutes to play. Unfortunately for the Ice Sharks, they weren't able to convert on a single power-play opportunity. The first period would come to a close with a 1-0 Riverview lead.

The second period continued the parade to the penalty box. First it was the Ice Sharks with a hooking call not even a minute in. Palm Harbor followed that up with another checking from behind/misconduct penalty with a little under thirteen minutes remaining. Neither team was able to score with the extra attacker on the ice. Riverview widened their lead with a little over eight minutes to play after knocking home another rebound, making it a 2-0 game. With a little over seven and a half to play Palm Harbor would take another penalty, this one for elbowing. The Ice Sharks finally managed to score with the extra man advantage, grabbing yet another rebound and driving it into the Hurricane goal for a 3-0 lead with six minutes to go in the period. Riverview would find themselves in the penalty box less than a minute later, thanks to an interference call. This time it was Palm Harbor that would take advantage, grabbing their own rebound and flipping the puck up and over the Riverview goaltender to close the gap to 3-1 with a little under five minutes to play. It appeared that the period would end with that score, but the Hurricane were able to complete a nice pass across the ice that found a stick for a wrist shot that found the back of the Riverview net with just six seconds left to play in the period, making it a 3-2 game. That would be the score heading into the second intermission.

Not even a minute into the third period the Riverview side would retake a two goal lead, score on a wrist shot from just inside the left circle. They would make it a 5-2 score just fourteen seconds later thanks to a nice backhand shot from the right side of the Palm Harbor goal. The Hurricane would storm back, making a hard drive to the net just twenty six seconds later that resulted in a goal that narrowed the margin to 5-3. Each team would take a penalty following that last goal, and that would mean a bit of 4v4 play. Unfortunately for fans of the Ice Sharks, it was the Hurricane that utilized the extra space on the ice, spring themselves on a breakaway that led to the puck just trickling in over the goal line and a 5-4 score with just under twelve minutes still to play. Riverview would take quick back-to-back penalties, resulting in a brief 5v3 advantage for Palm Harbor. Thankfully they were able to kill that off, but just after regaining one of their skaters from the box, Palm Harbor fired home a wrist shot from the right circle for a power-play goal that tied the game at 5-5 with over nine minutes remaining. Palm Harbor kept firing pucks on net, but thankfully they weren't able to grab the lead on any of them. Riverview had to kill off one additional penalty, this one for tripping, but they managed to hold on to keep the score tied at 5-5 when the game came to a close.
