The ICE won game 1, 5 to 1, and game 2, 2 to 1, over the North Central Bobcats from Prince George.

Coach Brennan Foreman reports that in game 1, the ICE showed their dominance by outshooting, outhitting and overall outplaying the Bobcats. Cam Reid had two goals and three assists and Dawson Gray had two goals. Also standing out was goaltender Kaleb Birmingham, who allowed only two goals in two games.

Game 2 was marked by discipline, self restraint and hard work, says the coach.
