an impressive 5-3 victory over a strong Conyers Canucks squad. Sean Whewell of
the Canucks and Nate Meghoo of the Senators were named player of the games for
their respective performances.

back-and-forth game that ended in a 9-9 tie and saw 13 different point scorers.
Game two of the Atom division saw new sponsor WestStar Wild defeat the Animal
