Jamestown’s strong play continued in the third as followed up his own rebound and found the net with an assist from Tyler Chavez-Leech (JR/Red Deer, Alberta) at 8:09. Later in the frame at 10:46, Cole McKechney (SR/Calgary, Alberta) deflected a Jordan Popoff (FR/Calgary, Alberta) point shot into the net to seal a 4-1 victory for the Jimmies.
