The Atoms were facing Sturgeon Lake Thunder and they fought hard but were down 5-3 when Hunter Hargreaves got an amazing, eye-dazzling pass from Serina Hamel. Then he deeked out the goalie and scored, making the score 5-4. Then it was Ennismore Eagles vs the Baltimoore Ice Dogs. The Ice Dogs had won 2 games and lost one.
