Final score TCHC 6, Mitsubishi 4.

Both teams started out cautious, without many scoring chances in the first period, ending 0-0. 

Mitsubishi took a 1-0 lead early in 2nd with a goal by #12 Akai. 

The Canadians stormed back to take 3-1 lead midway through the 2nd with goals by D. Shao, P. LeBlanc, and I. Medcalf. Both teams tallied to finish 2nd at 4-2 TCHC, with B. Wong scoring for the Canadians and #10 Hiroki for Mitsubishi.

In the 3rd, Canadians pulled away with two more goals by Shao, a call-up centre from the Chiba affiliate, to take a 6-2 lead before second goals by Akai and Hiroki for Mitsubishi made it close, but not close enough.

Goalkeeper Eisuke Shimizu flashed the leather on numerous occasions to keep the lead for the Canadians.

See you next time!
