Period Length

15:00 15:00 15:00  


Drew and his Riverview Ice Sharks teammates traveled to the Clearwater Ice Arena for the first of back-to-back games this afternoon, this one against the George Jenkins Eagles.

There wasn't a lot of action early in this one. The Eagles managed the first two shots on goal, but then were called for an interference penalty at the 12:21 mark. Riverview managed to fire three shots on goal during their man advantage, but they couldn't find the back of the net on any of them. It wasn't until more than half of the period had elapsed before either team was able to score, and thankfully it was the Ice Sharks who broke through first. They scored their first goal on a rebound that was tipped into the Eagles net with just over seven minutes to play. The Eagles would be called for their second penalty of the game, this time for slashing, with a little over six minutes to play. It would take the Ice Sharks just thirty-two seconds of power play opportunity to take advantage, this one on a pass across the crease that was tipped in for a power-play goal and a 2-0 advantage. With a little under five minutes to play the Ice Sharks would execute another nice pass to the crease that they once again managed to tip into the Eagles net, making it a 3-0 score. While waiting for the faceoff after the Riverview goal, the George Jenkins coach went off on the referees, and ended up earning his team a two minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Fortunately for him, his team was able to kill off that penalty kill. The period would come to a close with the Ice Sharks up 3-0.

The second period got off to a quick start for the Riverview team, as they score just twelve seconds in on a long wrist shot from just inside the blue line near the benches, making it a 4-0 game. It would become a 5-0 game just thirty-eight seconds in, as the Ice Sharks were able to bury a rebound once again. Jenkins would kill off an interference penalty with just under fourteen minutes to play, but the Ice Sharks would add to their lead shortly after it expired. With eleven and a half to play they pounced on another rebound, finding the back of the net to make it a 6-0 game. The Eagles would be called for high sticking with just over five minutes to play, but they would successfully kill that one off, preventing a single Riverview shot on goal. The two teams would head into the third intermission with the score 6-0 in favor of Riverview.

Riverview would add to their lead four and a half minutes in, firing a wrist shot home from between the circles, making it a 7-0 game. The Eagles would dominate in shots on goal this period, but it was once again the Ice Sharks getting on the score sheet, this time with just over a minute remaining in the period, making it an 8-0 score, which would be the final score. Way to go Ice Sharks!
