Eight Teams are entered in the tournament and 16 games are scheduled, although there is not enough time to have the time for a full Round Robin. Already, Terrace has won their first game against Prince Rupert, 7-1, Kitimat has played against Burns Lake winning 10-0, Houston beat Fort Saint James at 5-4 have squared off in the Kitimat Ice Rink and Vanderhoof beat out Smithers 5-2.

Once again, those scores were:
Terrace vs Pr Rupert 7-1
Kitimat vs Burns Lake 10-0
Ft. St. James vs Houston 4-5
Vanderhoof vs Smithers 5-2
The puck is dropped, it goes directly towards the Kitimat Net...
But is returned. This is actually Kitimat's second goal of the tornament... both took place within the first three minutes.
The puck is stopped by the Terrace Goaltender. Terrace is in White, Prince Rupert is in Aqua.
Meanwhile, in Kitimat Ice Rink, Houston in Orange takes on Fort Saint James in Black.
