Okanagan Hockey Academy (5) vs North Shore Warriors (2) U15

Max Joseph had the game’s lone goal through 40-minutes, giving North Shore the lead heading into the third. However, OHA would quickly strike for two goals only 29-seconds apart. James Koch would score one on the powerplay to tie things up shortly after, but Caiden Osiowy-Mah was able to regain OHA’s lead a few minutes later. Adam Molinaro (2G) would add another two further into the frame, cementing OHA’s victory after a statement making third period.

Delta Hockey Academy Green (3) vs Pacific Coast Hockey Academy Blue (4) U17 Prep

Delta Green and PCHA Blue would trade goals just 19-seconds apart in the first. The Vancouver Giants prospect, Max Malinousky (2G), would sway the momentum early in the second for Delta Green with his second of the afternoon. However, PCHA Blue would only need 4:17 to change the outcome of this contest, scoring three unanswered in that timeframe, topped off by Drew Stinka for his first of the season. Ciaran Henry would get one back for Delta Green but from this point forward, it was Ashton Fummerton’s (43/46) show. Fummerton would make 11-saves in the third and backstop his team to victory. Greyson Moroz (37/41) would hold PCHA Blue at bay as well in the third, but his team’s offence couldn’t find a solution in the third.

Calgary International Hockey Academy (3/OT) vs Edge School Gold (2) U17 Prep

Although CIHA was being heavily outshot after two, Cole Prelusky (44/46) was able to stand on his head and keep his academy alive while Jack Coghlan was able to garner a tally in the second. Mason Moran would add to this tally, however Edge Gold pushed back in the third, scoring twice to force an overtime. Just 55-seconds into the extra frame, Lincoln Martin would spring Zee Jamal on to the partial breakaway where he’d make no mistake and bury his fifth of the season for the overtime winner.

Yale Hockey Academy (3/OT) vs Shawnigan Lake School (2) U17 Prep

The same player who started this one, would ultimately also be the one to seal it up. Saskatoon Blades prospect, Matthew Dowdall (2G), would get things started with a late first period tally. Entering the second, Shawnigan would claw back with a shorthanded marker off the stick of Brandon Kendall. Both teams would trade goals in the third, forcing an overtime, where we would find our hero Dowdall jamming one home on a partial breakaway. 

Rink Hockey Academy Kelowna Red (5) vs Okanagan Hockey Academy Black (6) U17 Prep

RHA Kelowna Red would build their way up to a 4-1 lead halfway through the match before OHA Black turned the tides. Maxx Parfitt (3G) would spark the start of a four goal chain to put his academy ahead halfway through the third. Luke Silvernagle (1G, 1A) would tie it back up with a one-timer off of the right circle. However, Trail-native Ben Fragle (1G, 1A) would bury a loose puck near the goalmouth just over a minute later for the eventual game winner in a comeback scenario.

Yale Hockey Academy (6) vs STAR Hockey Academy (7/OT) U15

It was a teeter totter of emotions through the first 40-minutes of this U15 showdown. STAR would break the ice with a four-goal first period with Levi Ellingsen (2G, 2A) chipping in on three of them. Yale would find a lone tally in that opening frame but would explode for three of their own in the second. Some late back-and-forth action wouldn’t solve anything and overtime would be necessary. Then just 26-seconds in, Daniel Makovetskiy (3G) would rifle one topshelf for his hat-trick, and more importantly, the game winner.

Pilot Mound Hockey Academy (3) vs Indigenous Sports Academy (4/OT) U17 Prep

After Austen Puentes knocked home an air-mailed puck late in the first, Tanner Demarais-Corrigal would score his second goal in as many games to tie things back up. Benson Hirst (1G, 1A) would polish off a sweet feed from Dwight Sawatzky soon after. However, Baron Tanton would score his first of the season to reel things back to even once more. Carson Carels (1G, 1A) and Rowen Albert would trade goals in the third to force an overtime. Pilot Mound would start the extra frame with nearly an entire powerplay, but Chauncy Jack (39/42) would make some key stops, along with some luck from the posts. After the successful kill, Tayvian Delorme would work his way into the slot before firing home the game winner in dramatic fashion to clinch their second straight overtime victory over Pilot Mound.

Delta Hockey Academy (2) vs Pacific Coast Hockey Academy (6) U18 Prep

Delta and PCHA would duke it out in the first period, scoring a goal a piece before the ice clean. However, PCHA would find their groove in the second, scoring five goals in succession with some beautiful passing plays. Noah Kosick (3A), Jordan Ramsay (2G, 2A) and Jase Johnstone (1G, 2A) would all eclipse the three point barrier thanks to this offensive downpour. Ryan Lin would blast one home in the third in an effort to make a comeback, but it was too little too late for Delta.

Okanagan Hockey Academy (5) vs Coeur d’Alene Hockey Academy (1) U17 Prep

Aside from a shorthanded marker from CDA’s Shawn Haynes, it was an overall textbook night for OHA. Tucker Robertson (2G) would open the scoring in the first and captain Seth Flett (1G, 1A) would pot home a powerplay goal in the second. OHA would eventually close the night off with three unanswered in the third following Hayne’s SH goal.

North Shore Warriors (5) vs Shawnigan Lake School (6) U18 Prep

North Shore and Shawnigan would trade goals back-and-forth for the entirety of the matchup. Deacon Drummond (2G, 1A) would lead the offence for the Warriors while Joshua Polak (2G, 2A) contributed his fair share for Shawnigan. It would come down to the wire in the third and looked as though the game would need extra time. However, Eli McKamey (3A) would make a brave move to the front of the net on his forehand, his rebound would fall to the stick of Gabriel Kenny (1G, 1A) and he’d make no mistake burying his second of the season. Both of Kenny’s goals this season are GWG on home turf.

South Alberta Hockey Academy (3) vs Northern Alberta Xtreme (4) Female U18 Prep

SAHA found the back of the net twice in the first to set some momentum in their favour. However, NAX’s Larae Benoit (2G) would tally one halfway through the first and early in the second to erase SAHA’s advantage. Four minutes later, Kendra Shumaker would score her first of the season to put NAX in front. Caris Erickson (1G, 2A) would add another in the third for NAX, which would go on to be the deciding goal after SAHA’s Brianna Finke brought it to within one.

Okanagan Hockey Academy (5) vs Coeur d’Alene Hockey Academy (1) U18 Prep

After a fiery opening 20-minutes, OHA would settle into a  rhythm. Ethan Hamilton (2G) would get his academy on the board early in the second. CDA would get one back before Markus Ruck (1G, 1A) stole back the lead for OHA. Hamilton would add another in the third while Liam Ruck (2G, 1A) would add a pair.
