Game Summary

East 1 - Central 3
Game 9
May 13, 2004
Grande Prairie, AB

This game did not have any impact on the semi-finals other than which team had the final change as the home team. Neither team wanted to show all their tricks as these two teams meet again on Saturday at 2pm in the first of two semi-finals. Joel Kitchen opened the scoring for Aurora at 12:25 of the first period to give the Tigers the lead. Andrew Hotham added to that lead when he scored at the half way mark of the second period. Nepean continued to battle as they were having a tough time solving Tigers goalie, Chris Whitley. Scott Cowie finally got the Nepean Raiders on the board when his solo effort paid off on the power-play, and brought them to within one. But that was all they were able to do as Whitley shut the door after that. Aurora added an empty netter to take the game 3-1. Nepean will get a chance to avenge the loss Saturday when they meet again in the semi-finals. Aurora finishes the round robin with a 3-1 record, good enough for 2nd place. Nepean finishes with an even 2-2 record, and finishes in 3rd.
