The Force returned to action tonight in an inter-squad scrimmage, Black (Home) vs. Blue (Away). Blue got off to a hot start in the first half scoring the first two goals of the game. The first off of a wrist shot from the slot by Jake Braccini, assisted by Grant Slukynsky. Then, about halfway through the first Cade Stibbe snuck one in to put Blue up 2-0

However, Black wasn’t willing to go down without a fight. With 1:33 left, Huston Karpman scored to put Black on the board. Then, with five seconds on the clock Black put an exclamation point on the end of the first half. Tristan Broz assisted by Jeremy Davidson ripped in a goal to bring the score to an even 2-2.
