Following the first, the Jr Reign scored 3 goals in the last 10 minutes to raise their lead 7-0, while chipping in another three-piece in the 3rd to round out their dominant performance.
Ontario Jr Reign veteran Julian Arenal stopped all 19 shots he faced, while the Jr Reign worked two goalies into the massacre with equal results. Shredders starter Aidan Patterson 50 out of the 56 shots he faced in the first and second period, while backup Hunter Krell stopped 22 out of the 26 shots he saw in the third. In total, the Jr Reign led the way with 82 shots.
Following the win, Head Coach and GM Blumes said “We began the night announcing our Captains and I think that had the boys feeling inspired. Along with that it was the first night our name bars were sewn onto the backs of our jerseys and we made the point that while we play for the crest on front not the name on the back, none of us are here without the love and support from that family name on the back. Combine all of these elements along with a first game against Tahoe that left all of us wanting more and we had a very determined group this evening.”
