The Sting Rays took on the Sand Sharks and being the only team with wins against the Sharks, was looking to get their third one, and snap a major losing streak. The Sharks struck first with the only goal of the first period as Hunter Gillum rippled the twine with just two minutes in the stanza. The Rays came to life in the second period scoring four goals to take the lead and keep it heading into the third period to answer the Sharks two second period goals. Four different scorers for the Rays as Poweska, Odell, LaFlamme, and McDuffie potted pucks for the boys in camo. The Sharks had goals from Bobo and Smalley, for Smalley the first of a hat trick for him on the night. The Sharks came back in the third with a vengeance with four unanswered goals to answer a quick strike by the Rays by Jackson Payne, in the first minute of the period. Souza scored on a near perfect give and go with Brayden Curry followed by another goal for both Bobo and Smalley. That took the lead away from the Sting Rays for the last time. Christian Sherman would add a shorthanded goal at the 12:48 mark and Smalley would complete the hat trick to make a 5-3 Rays lead turn into a Sharks 8-5 lead. But the Rays never seem to go away quietly and goals from Cha Ching Odell and Hayden Kimmel would make it 8-7 with 3:50 left in regulation. It was mayhem for sure as the Rays scrambled to score the equalizer but could not get it to go and the game ends with another Sharks one goal win. Another high shooting affair as the Sand Sharks out shot the Rays 66-59.
