- Heading into the second half, Team Hamhuis has a 3-1 lead. It will be interesting to see how Chara responds to start this frame. No doubt the likes of Jansen Harkins, Dylan McCann and Aaron Boyd will be looked upon to provide some offense and get Chara back into this game.

- Right on cue, Jansen Harkins scores on his first shift to make it 3-2 for Hamhuis. Harkins did all of the work as he skated down the right side, and was able to stuff the puck in on the short side.

- Tate Olson rings one off the goal post at the other end for Team Hamhuis. So far it's a much more back-and-forth period. 3-2 Hamhuis halfway through.

- Jagger Thomas has extended Hamhuis' lead with his second of the game. Great job by Carson Bolduc to create traffic in front.

- Sam Ruopp throws a big hit along the boards and keeps play onside for his team. Ruopp has quietly had himself two strong games today.

- A point shot  by Alex Gran was deflected in, quite possibly by Treavor Gagne. It's now 5-2 for Hamhuis.

- A nifty passing play by Ethan Waitzner and Zach Paxman results in a sixth Hamhuis goal. Paxman converted on a gorgeous pass from Waitzner.

- Brad Morrison takes a penalty shot for Team Hamhuis and makes a gorgeous drag move to increase the lead to 7-2 for Team Hamhuis. Brad Morrison has had a marvelous day at Cougars camp.

- Carson Bolduc strikes again, and once again he outwaited everybody with some dandy stick handling. I'd say that Bolduc has easily been the most pleasant surprise of today's games for me personally.

- Ethan Waitzner gets a penalty shot, and is stopped by Matt Kustra. Still 8-2 for Hamhuis.

- Hat-Trick for Morrison.  9-2

- Each squad converts once more. Paxman for Hamhuis and McKersie for Chara. 10-3 Final.
