In the first game of the night we had the Whalers hosting the Gamblers.  The Whalers have been improving each week even though their record doesn't show it, this week they got off to a slow start as the Gamblers would go up 1-0 on Travis Poublon goal just 40 seconds into the game.  With the Gamblers grabbing the early lead it was all Gamblers for the first period, the Gamblers would strike again with 2:44 left in the period this time the goal was scored by Dave Sutton making the score 2-0.  The Gamblers would add a last second goal from Topo LaCroix to put them up 3-0 heading into the second period. 

In the second period the Gamblers kept going their foot on the gas pedal as Travis Poublon would net his second of the night and make the score 4-0 with 10:28 to play in the second period.  Travis would waste no time getting his third of the night 29 seconds later to put the Gamblers up 5-0 at the 9:59 mark.  The Whalers would push back but they couldn't get anything past the Gamblers Tucker Garritty-Hanchett. The period would come to end with a goal by Will Meyer with 9 second left as Travis Poublon racked up his fourth point of the night and giving the Gamblers a commanding  5-0 lead heading into the third period. 

In the third period the Gamblers would take a penalty five minutes in and give the Whalers a power play chance.  Although the Whalers had some good chances on the PP  they would finally get one past the Gamblers Tucker Garrity-Hanchett at 7:59 from Dillan Pierce.  Although the Whalers would out shoot the Gamblers in the third period 16-6 the score would remain 6-1 until two seconds left when Russell Teller would score to make the final score of the game 6-2 Gamblers.
