Second Ranked Fremont Flyers slide past Oahe Capitals

Oahe Capitals (SOG = 22) at Fremont Flyers (SOG = 26)
The two squads played a very physical game on Saturday.  The Capitals would be the first to get on the board with a goal from Ashton Griese on a pass and the assist from Turner Starr.  With 8:26 left in the first period, the Fremont Flyers would be the first, but definately not the last, to enjoy the penalty box view.  The power play for the Caps would be short lived after a hooking penalty given to Ashton Lee at the 8:11 mark.  Oahe would get two more power play opportunites after Fremont was called for a penalty with 7:11 and 3:08 left on the clock in the first period.  Fremont would capitalize on the powerplay when Jonathan Lyons was sent to the box for slashing at the 45.2 mark by adding three goals at 16.7, 9.1 and 2.7 to end the first period with a score of 1-3.  Conlan Rendell would take a Fremont Flyer player with him to the penalty box for roughing with 12:49 in the second period.  The Capitals offense would put two more pucks in the net to tie the score 3-3.  Isaac Polak would be the first to score with 12:25 left and Starr would be the second to find the net with 6:26 on the clock.  Fremont would gain the lead six seconds later with a goal.  Dre Berndt would be assessed a roughing penatly with 4:41 left in the second and the Capitals would be successful on the penalty kill to keep the score 3-4 in favor of Fremont heading to the third.  The third period would be the most aggressive of all with two Flyers goals with 11:01 and 10:35 left in the game.  Griese and an opposing Fremont player would see the penalty box for roughing at 10:04.  A very controversial call on Polak with 9:52 sent him to the locker room for the weekend.  Berndt would defend his goalie and partake in a coincidental penatly for unsportsmanlike conduct with 4:52 left on the game clock.  Another penalty for Fremont with 2:49 left following by the last of the Oahe penalties on Griese for unsportsmanlike conduct would put the Flyers on top with a final score of 3-6.  Colin Lee tallied 20 saves.

Oahe Capitals (SOG = 30) at Fremont Flyers (SOG = 33)
Sunday's game would be decided within the last minute of the game.  Both squads would remain scoreless in the first period and only one penalty assessed to the Flyers with 9:05 remaining on the clock.  The second period was a little more exciting for the penalty box volunteers.  Lyons given a penalty for slashing at the 11:53 mark.  A Fremont hooking on a Capitals breakaway allowed the crowd to partake in their first penalty shot of the season.  Starr at center ice skated in dekeing and dangling but the goalie prevailed with the save to still leave the score 0-0.  A coincidental penalty left 12 skaters on the ice, but Carson Palmer would sit for two minutes for roughing with 5:25 remaining in the second period.  In the third period, Starr would visit the penalty box with 14:24 left in the game for tripping.   Fremont would get penalties at 8:26 and 1:34 but would score shorthanded with 34.2 seconds left on the clock to record the win with a final score of 0-1.  Kieran Duffy tallied 32 saves.
