The Leafs and Stars game went down to the final shift as both clubs kept pressing in this very balanced affair. Jackson got the Leafs on the board and then Mohammed countered for the Stars. Aariz put the Stars in front 2-1 before Ms. Park tied the game. Aariz took Saad’s feed and quickly deposited it across the goal line and a 3-2 lead. Déjà vu struck, as Ms. Park scored her second to tie the game once again. Ms. Woodward, moving in from the point, forced the Stars’ netminder to challenger her shot, only to have her fire the puck toward the far post where Josh amply redirected the puck for a 4-3 Leafs lead. Aariz managed to score his third of the match to tie the game and then Saad responded for the Stars and packaged a pair of goals to put them up 6-4. Jackson had other ideas as he closed the gap to 1 goal, but tempus fugit had the final say, and the Stars held on to win 6-5!
The Hawks kept pace with the Flyers for the first half of the match as Alex, Nina and Gayan scored for the Hawks to keep pace with Flyers’ Godfrey and Sam, but a slow line change provided the Flyers with a 3-0 break and Thomas made no mistake parking the puck on the top level and the Flyers seemed to be energized. Godfrey scored his second of the contest, Thomas rang up another two goals, Evan hammered home a rebound, and then Godfrey concluded the scoring frenzy with another two goals to give the Flyers a 9-3 victory.

For the Habs, Ms. Capan and Omar each potted the puck with helpers from Lawson, who then went on a rampage and netted 5 goals.
