Cole Walter earned the win with 18 saves for the Mustangs, while Devin Naidow posted 29 for the Chill.
L/A 13 @ Long Beach 1 - It was a game to remember for many Nordiques, as several logged astronomical point totals in a 13-1 win over the Sharks. Peyton Hughes led with five goals and an assist, followed by Connor Kennedy with five helpers, Nick Pomerleau with four and Michael Keller with three. Also lighting the lamp were Daisuke Egusa and Joe Clark twice apiece, as well as Tyler Larsen, Hans Watson, Bryce Leger and Sam Frechette once. Nick Beck made 36 saves in the win, allowing a single goal to Chris Wracker of Long Beach. Richard Prazan and Timothy Brillaud combined for a whopping 72 total saves in the Sharks' cage.
Maine 3 @ Skylands 6 - Two-goal efforts from Thomas Hoffman and James Clarke fueled the offense and Jacob King's 26 saves shored up the defense as the Kings skated to a 6-3 win over the Wild on Sunday. Dylan Dinzik and Justin Hiler also hit the back of the net for Skylands, while Nolan MacDonald, Matt Carson and Max Hurring tallied for Maine. Tom Spero posted 44 saves in the loss.
TX Roadrunners 4 @ Louisiana 3 - The Roadrunners raced to a 2-0 advantage early in this one, which proved to be the difference in a tightly-contested matchup that they took over the Drillers 4-3. Four different Roadrunners hit the scoresheet, as Blake Elliott, Mason Evans, Garrett Wilderman and Seth Payson provided the Texas offense. Blake Siewertsen carried the Drillers with two goals, joining Brandon Morgan in the Louisiana scoring, but fell just short. Jaeger Reed starred as well for Texas with a whopping 51 saves, outdueling Grady Reis' mark of 24 stops in the Drillers' cage.
