Maddux Hartwick, right off the opening faceoff, broke in with a harmless looking shot which found its way through the five-hole. The Isles replied before the five minute mark, adding another on the power play in the second. With six and a half minutes left in the game, the Stars’ opponents tallied again seemingly to put the contest out of reach. Walker Presley kept it close, however, jamming one in during a goal-mouth scramble. With 100 seconds left, Hartwick scored the equalizer on a setup by Caleb Baker. Shots favoured the Stars 30-18. Presently, the U13’s are in second place in the five-team playoff round.
