Yukon Do it!

In an electric showdown that lit up the evening hockey game between the Yukon U15 and Northwest Territory teams, penalties and points were aplenty in a packed house with 12 penalties between the two squads.

The stands were filled and this one was standing room only, with fans standing on benches, and packed like sardines around the outer glass. Yukon got off to a fast start with Colton Coates breaking through the defense to net an early goal with assists from Elliot Whalen and Thomas Nemeth in the first period.

Huntley Asquith found the back of the net with a second goal at 10:33 in the first period to give the Yukon a comfortable cushion. Both teams played a tough game as they launched into the second period. With 13:08 left in the second Northwest Territory scored to inch closer to the 2-1 with a stellar goal from Brock Lanz and strong assists from Cormac Stewart and Jackson Fuller.

Northwest Territory continued to push hard and evened the score at 2-2 with 3:37 left in the second with a goal from Jackson Fuller and assist from Cormac Stewart. As the third period began the chanting of the crowd and shaking of the bleachers came to a peak. Both teams skated hard but Yukon scored the go ahead goal with 14:34 of the third with a goal from Elliot Whaler and an assist from Rowan Newbury. With 6:45 Mannix Bingham scored to ensure the Yukon win 4-2.
