With the scoring gap closed to 7 – 4 and 10 minutes left of the game, the Ice were still in with a chance at a come back, however, the game saw no more goals from either team.

“We had a really strong first period and then our team just got really soft,” said Omineca Ice coach, Chris Reed.

“I’m not sure if it’s because we’ve been playing so many games and we’re tired … we just didn’t really push.” he said.

 

The Ice faced the defending Coy Cup champions the Williams Lake Stampeders in a 1 p.m. game on Sunday losing 13 -5.
