But Okanagan Hockey Academy turned the tables in the middle frame, scoring twice with the man advantage to get to within a goal before pulling even very late in the period.
Kienan Scott scored his second of the game just a minute into the third period to give OHA its first lead at 4-3, and the team’s traded goals in the final frame, setting up a wild final three minutes.
Shattuck’s Hunter Fejes scored shorthanded to tie the game with 2:54 to go, but Hicketts struck just 78 seconds later to restore the OHA lead an and empty net goal rounded out the scoring.
Okanagan Hockey Academy looks to carry the momentum into Day 2 on Tuesday as it takes on Finland (5 p.m. MT), while Shattuck will look to rebound against Slovakia in the afternoon contest (1:30 p.m. MT).
