Tyler Guimond scored a goal and added an assist, as well as Bradly Bissat, hitting the net. Adding assists were Logan Worthington (two) and Trinity Jensen (one). The team and goalie, Terrance Hubick-Archie, were on fire. Hubick-Archie got his first shut out of the season. 100 Mile won 10-0.

In the second game, Williams Lake Blue added a couple more skaters to their bench. Ending the first period it was 3-1 in favour of 100 Mile. Chamberlain shut WL Blue down in the second. The Blue team put extra pressure on in the third and got one and added one more goal with eight seconds left on the clock. Glen was a force with a hattrick and an assist. Moore added a hat trick to light up the scoreboard. Spence Giesbrecht found the back of the net with two goals and one assist. Hopson snipped two more goals past the goalie.
