KCG dominated in their game against SiamMandalay by winning 9-1. The Get Fresh Player of the Game went to Jan Isaksson for his three goals and one assist.
In the late game, the 1-1 Aware squad took on the undefeated Lexicon Lumberjacks. Both teams came out strong, with Aware’s Mike White scoring first on a nice set up from Devin Michael followed by a quick goal from Oleg Kabakov. But wouldn’t be denied, turning up the heat and getting a slick goal from Roger Promthong before the end of the 1st period. Aware took the momentum into the second period, but Lexicon’s fast-footed defensemen Ken Kindborn and Denis Omelka had other plans.
Omelka and Aware’s Patrick Forstner each scored quick goals to start the middle frame and move the score to 3-2 Aware, but it was Kindborn’s tying goal just moments later that broke the dam for Lexicon. 3 unanswered goals between Omelka and Lexicon captain Justin St. Denis tilted the ice too far out of Aware’s reach, who struggled with penalties as the game progressed. Omelka would add two more goals for a whopping 5 points on the night, while Aware’s Kelly Shim potted two late goals to end the game 9-5 for Lexicon.
