On November 21st, 2019, in our first game of the night, we had Novotel Spitfires going head to head with Hertz. Novotel took an early lead, scoring two unanswered goals in the first period, then scored their third unanswered goal early in the second period. Hertz tried to make a comeback, scoring a goal in the second period and their second early in the third, but they just couldn’t get any more past the sharp rookie Spitfires netminder to give Novotel Spitfires a 3-2 win. Novotel’s goalie, Leo Liao earned himself the Rolling Stone Pizza Player of the Game by stopping 24 of 26 shots.
