The first period ended with the Canucks taking the lead after a goal by Kyle McCallum, assisted by Tyler Murray.

In the second period the Drive pulled ahead with goals from Colby Van Horne-Wall and Quinn Roberts. McCallum continued his scoring streak and responded with assistance from Clarke.

With the teams tied at 3-3 going into the third, McCallum scored his third goal of the game assisted by Zach Ohlman to put the Canucks ahead once more. It was only a few minutes later when  Sam Purcell of the Drive evened the score.

Canucks goalie Kody Sheperd and strong defensive play by Brandon Myrbo helped keep the the Drive from going ahead. With three minutes on the clock Clarke scored on a breakaway to give the Canucks a 5-4 win.

“What a fantastic game for both teams,” a spokesperson said. “Thank you to the sponsors, coaches, refs,  parent volunteers and fans for your support!”
