After losing to the Tomahawks in their previous two matches the ‘Roos seemed determined to make up for that loss and quickly trampled the Tomahawks.

As the buzzer sounded, calling the players to the ice the ‘Roos were poised and ready for the oncoming Tomahawks.

Only four minutes into the first period ‘Roo Justin Fulton, assisted by Coltin De Frais, scored the first goal of the night and from there the Quesnel boys appeared unstoppable.

Skating in for the third goal of the night was Alessio Tomassetti, with Fulton assisting.

Mattice and Hanes assisted Galbraith for yet another goal for the ‘Roos.

Scoring goal after goal after goal the ‘Roos proved they are a force to be reckoned with.

Quesnel’s team skated in for the second period with a six goal lead and though the Tomahawks started the second period off on a good note, scoring their first goal of the night, this brief victory was definitely short lived.

The Kangaroos netted another three pucks before the Tomahawks could even manage their second goal of the night.

‘Roo trio Tomassetti, Fulton and De Frais scored the first and second goals of the second period for Quesnel.

The third goal went to Mattice, assisted by Hanes and Waylon L’Heureux.

Before the buzzer sounded to signal the end of the second period the ‘Roos took aim and fired, scoring another two goals.  First by Galbraith, assisted by Hanes and Mattice, followed by Futon with the help of De Frais and Tomassetti.

Though it seemed the Tomahawks weren’t going to go down without a fight, literally.

Nearing the end of the second period Tomahawk Ellery Brigham and Kangaroos Ryan Skinner were each given five minutes in the penalty box for fighting.

Though this remained the only major scuffle taking place on the ice.

With a triumphant nine goal lead at the start of the third period the ‘Roos appeared to have it in the bag.
