Missed Opportunities
CHG entered the game with a perfect record so far, but Bravo was coming off a big win over Inetasia last game. This game looked to be quite even.

However, it was a strange game, while most of the game was a tight checking affair, with limited shots on net by both teams, when those shots came, they were all grade A scoring chances. Bravo went up 2 goals, from Leon Mo and Ambrose Lee, before CHG’s Adrian Wong (LPP) was given a clear breakaway from his own zone after one of the many blocked shots. Wong tried to wait out Antony Chan, but he wasn’t biting and easily stopped Wong to keep CHG off the scoresheet. Shortly after that golden chance to get CHG back into the
game, Bravo scored after a wild scramble in front of Lee and Tam was johnny on the spot as the puck bounced to the open side where he was waiting. Bravo 3-0 after 1.

Leading scorer Jason Yip continued his Ovechkin like start to the season with his 9th and 10th goals in 3 games at almost the same time of the 2nd and 3rd periods to give Bravo a commanding 5-0 lead with most of the 3rd period to go, the second goal after an errant CHG clearing attempt that was intercepted by Tam and Yip finished a nice one timer on the
ensuing 2 on 1.

CHG after missing many good scoring opportunities to get back into the game, the only question remaining was whether they could spoil Chan's shutout bid. CHG finally was able to spoil Chan's shutout with only 24 seconds remaining with screened point shot from Adrian Wong (LPP) after Bravo took a late penalty.

CHG and Bravo now sit 3 and 4 in the standings with only goal difference separating them in the young season. Antony Chan stopped 14 and Edward Lee stopped 11.

The Three Stars:
1. Jason Yip (Bravo)
2. Leon Mo (Bravo)
3. Antony Chan (Bravo)

See-Saw
Inetasia started the game quickly with Dick Lee scoring his first only 49 seconds into the game. Jason Yip (LPP) continued his scoring streak by finishing off a great pass from Kenny Chiu to tie the game 1-1 to close out scoring in the first.

The second period saw 5 goals scored in this see-saw game. Taboo gained the lead after Kenny Chiu scored before Dick Lee with his second of the evening with a seeing eye shot thru a crowd to tie it up for Inetasia. Alton Ho helped Inetasia regain the lead only to have John Wade tie it again on the ensuing shift. The teams continued to play a tight game until Maureen 'Mo' Wong scored off a rebound to give Taboo the lead once again. 4-3 Taboo.

Hamish Pang (LPP) finally gave Taboo the first 2 goal lead of the game from a nice passing play from Tim Tsui and Kenny Chiu. Taboo looked to be cruising now until Peter Yeung got his first of the season with a little over 3 minutes remaining giving Inetasia some hope.

Inetasia pulled the goalie to try and get the equalizer but was unable to gain the zone after Taboo clogged the neutral zone and had 3 chances at the empty net to seal the game - 2 from Hamish (one wide, and another sailing high over the net) and Kenny Chiu looking to tap on in on the side only to have it roll off his stick.

Taboo held on for the win, Kirsten Rendell stopped 11, while Arthur Chan turned aside 18.

The Three Stars:
1. Kenny Chiu (Taboo)
2. Rod Man (Inetasia)
3. Arthur Chan (Inetasia)

Tale of 2 Teams
Asiaxpat entered this game undefeated while HoiHoi was still looking for their first win.

In a chippy game with each team taking a number of penalties, it was surprising that none of the goals came on the powerplay.

Asiaxpat have scored first in every game so far, and Hamish Pang has been red hot having scored every one of these. Asiaxpat was dominant from the beginning, controlling play, and limiting HoiHoi from prime scoring areas. Slowly, Asiaxpat overwhelmed HoiHoi, getting 2 goals in the first, 2 in the second, and 2 more in the 3rd to round out the scoring.

HoiHoi was unable to create enough chances to beat Jerome, who recorded the first shutout of the season.

Sam Wong on the other end did his best to keep the team in the game, but with a few deflections including one off their own defense, there was just too much pressure. Sam ended the game saving 21, while Jerome stopped 11.

The Three Stars:
1. Jerome Lui (AsiaXpat)
2. Hamish Pang (AsiaXpat)
3. Jasper Chow (AsiaXpat)
