Division 3 - Game Summaries

January 7th, 2022

AsiaXpat Continues to Roll
Asiaxpat continued their dominance this season with a 4-1 win over a new look HoiHoi team.

Post the supplemental draft, HoiHoi looked much better on paper. However it only took Asiaxpat's Ray Tang 44 seconds to open the scoring. It took a bit of time for the new players to get familiar with the team but they played well for the next 10 minutes keeping Asiaxpat chances to a minimum. It wasn’t until the 11 minute mark did the leagues leading scorer Hamish Pang get the 2nd goal.

Offense is a different matter. The new additions to HoiHoi were still unable to create many opportunities against the deep Xpat team. The Xpat defense were suffocating in how they were able to eliminate almost all of HoiHoi's attacks.
Asiaxpat added 2 more from Jimmy Lee and Hamish with his 2nd on the night. HoiHoi had no answer.

It wasn’t until the last second of the 3rd period that HoiHoi’s Jason Wong finally able to solve Jerome Liu and spoil his shutout with only 1 second remaining.

Jerome Lui turned aside 8, while David Lam (LPP) debuting in the SCIHL turned aside 19 in his 1st SCIHL start.

The Three Stars:
1. Hamish Pang (AsiaXpat)
2. Jerome Lui (AsiaXpat)
3. David Lam (LPP) (HoiHoi)

Shutting the door
Taboo continued with their run and gun strategy from last game and it seems to work. This time, Arthur Chan was a wall making stop after stop and making saves he had no right to make.

Chan earned his first shutout of the season backstopping Taboo to a 8-0 win over InetAsia.

This game was not as one sided as the score indicated as Inet had a ton of grade A scoring opportunities, they just could not beat Chan.

Taboo had goals from 6 different players including new to the team Bryan Leung (2g 2a) chipping in. Inet was without their usual goalie and David Lam (LPP) a goaltending prospect was given the opportunity to play.

David Lam (LPP) faced 33 shots while Arthur Chan faced 24 with the shutout.

The Three Stars:
1. Arthur Chan (Taboo)
2. Kenny Chiu (Taboo)
3. Bryan Leung (Taboo)

Wild Wild West
This game seemed like the shootout at the OK Corral in a Wild West movie. It seemed like both teams 'defensive mindsets' were still on holiday.

CHG and Bravo essentially traded goals all game. 8 goals in the first, 3 in the second, and 7 more goals in the 3rd period.

It was an exciting one for the fans, but one to forget for the goalies as both were hung out to dry with countless grade A scoring opportunities at both ends. After the dust settled, 9 different people registered goals and 3 registered hat tricks (Bravo: Leon Mo (4); Jason Yip
(3); CHG: Theo Wong (3)).

Perhaps the enforced break will allow these teams to work on their team defense before the final playoff push ahead.

Arthur Chan (LPP) subbing in for Antony Chan faced 33 shots, while Edward Lee also faced 33.

The Three Stars:
1. Leon Mo (Bravo)
2. Arthur Tam (Bravo)
3. Theo Wong (China Hockey Group)
