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 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.
