No Lead Is Safe In The SCIHL

After a week off due to the Land of Smiles tournament in Bangkok, the Division 1 games resumed and things picked up where they were left off. It was goals galore as the RBC Lions and Sam Wai Raptors went back and forth until the Lions pulled away with an 10-8 win. Each team had several 2-goal leads but the Lions second 2 goal lead was the difference.

The Lions jumped out to a 4-2 first period lead thanks to a pair of goals by Cole Poliziani. The Raptors stormed back with 4 unanswered goals to start the second period. Scott Strickland scored a pair and added a helper to lead the way. Issac Yip did get one back for the Lions before the period ended which gave them a spark.

In the third, Jeff Wall scored 6 minutes into the period to restore the Raptors’ 2-goal lead but once again, the see-saw battler saw the Lions roar back. Kentaro Yanagawa scored 2 quick goals to complete his hat trick and got the Lions back on even terms. Francis Lam put the Lions over the top but 3 minutes later but Stickland also scored hit hat trick goal to tie the game at 8. The dagger for Sam Wai came with 32 seconds left as Lam scored again to give the Lions a 9-8 lead. Julian Ikeda-Thew added an empty netter to seal the deal.

Kevin Rushton stopped 30 for Sam Wai while Sammy Wong also stopped 30 in place of Evan Thorpe who is still out with a lower body injury.
