The final game of Day 2 in the King of the NW Tournament was a varsity matchup between the Academy All-Starz and Calilax.
The All-Starz jumped out to an early lead with a pair of goals by Cole Dyehouse. Calilax answered with a three-goal run that gave them a 3-2 lead with 3:29 left in the opening frame. The All-Starz evened the score before the first intermission and the two teams entered the second tied at 3.
In the second, the All-Starz regained a one-goal lead with 5:43 left in the period. With 3:15 on the clock, Calilax tied it back up at four. A minute later, they regained the lead as D. McGinnis scored his second of the game. Calilax held a 5-4 edge going into the final 15 minutes.
Calilax extended their lead when T. Loper scored his second of the game just 1:32 into the third. The All-Starz got back to within a goal just over a minute later, but Calilax kept them out of reach with a goal late in the period to make it 7-5. Eli Batt scored his second of the night for the All-Starz with 2:50 on the clock to bring his team within a goal, but with 34 seconds left, L. Finnigan scored his second of the game to end any hopes of an All-Starz comeback. Calilax went on to the 8-6 win.
CaliLax: C. Barlosa 1G; M. Morais 1G; M. David 2G; N. Rumpf 2G, 1A; J. Cloete 1A; T. Funk 1G, 1A; K. Brandon 1G.
Jr. Stealth: S. Jacobs 2G; S. Macintyre 1G; M. Peters 1G; D. Valade 1G; C. Whyte 2G, 3A; M. Marino 1G, 2A
It looked to be all CaliLax at the start of the day with six first period goals by the visiting Californians and just two to match with the Jr. Stealth Pee Wee's. After waking from their slump, however, Jr. Stealth jumped back with four second period goals and holding CaliLax to just one, which got the locals back to within one. Goalies on both sides stepped up big in the third period and the Jr. Stealth failed to convert on a five-on-three powerplay, but still closed the gap to finish with a an 8-8 tie. Going into overtime, goalies again did their job and the crowd on both sides had the benches pumped with energy. It took three minutes and fifteen seconds of back and forth play for Connor Whyte to scoop a loose ball off the boards and nail the game winning shot sending the Jr. Stealth to the final game and CaliLax home with the bronze in what might have been the game of the weekend.

The Junior Stealth Varsity team looked good in the last day as they jumped to an early lead and never looked back. The Stealth picked up two power play goals, taking advantage of four Elite penalties during the first period. Held scoreless after the first period, the AllStarz Elite owned the second period with two goals and the Stealth held to a single netter. The Comcast Arena lights inexplicably shut down at the end of the second period and would not restart for another 20 minutes. After getting the lights back, the Elite failed to capitalize on the unplanned timeout, but earned a bronze for the weekend.

CaliLax traveled to Washington to bring home the gold and it showed in this Bantam game. Down by one after 50 seconds, CaliLax got the tying goal at 12:10 in the first period and then kept their foot on the gas afterwards. The Clash took six penalties in the game compared to two for CaliLax, and paid the price with CaliLax converting three times. The Clash failed to convert on their man-up opportunities. Harty and Walters notched two goals each and a breadth of CaliLax players picked up the rest. For the Clash, it was the Greenhall story, as he had a clean hat trick with three unassisted goals.

The veteran players on both teams were held for the last game of the day, which started with the Junior Stealth and CaliLax exchanging goals.CaliLax stood on top at 2-1 at the end of the first, and it was clear that this would be a battle. With the score tied at three and just a couple of seconds on the clock, Cole Johnson ran straight up the middle and launched one from the restraining line, giving the Junior Stealth the advantage at the buzzer. Jr. Stealth goalie David Mather was a rock for the last five minutes of the second and held CaliLax scoreless in the third. In the end, Johnson's goal was enough to clinch gold for the Junior Stealth, while CaliLax would return home with silver.

In a battle of locals, the Junior Stealth started with a strong first period with a 5-3 lead, but the Clash showed their mettle by climbing back to a 7-7 tie after the second period. The Clash seemed to grow stronger as the game progressed testing the Stealth goal keeping. Jake Braich had 16 saves in the third period alone, but despite holding the Clash to three goals in the final period, the Jr. Stealth offense was unable to answer more than once in the final 15 minutes.

As though one overtime game weren't enough, the Jr. Stealth Pee Wee team had another squeeker on the final day of the tournament. The battle that had the crowd roaring started with a Clash lead of 5-1 at the end of the first period. Five different Clash players scored, showing the breadth of talent on the team. By the end of the second period, the Stealth had only closed the gap by one, and at 7-4 the Clash remained in control. The Jr. Stealth team charged out of the gates in the third, however, picking up four consecutive goals and holding the Clash to one. Kellen Hoke got the tying goal with just 1:50 left on the clock and the Comcast Arena erupted in cheers. With tension high, both teams had chances in overtime, but it was Dryden Valade's moment and after 5:52 scoreless minutes he let one fly and was rewarded with that beautiful swoosh of ball hitting the back of the net. The Clash took home the silver for their part in the first King of the Northwest Tournament.

Shorthanded, the Crusaders played hard but were outmanned by the Junior Stealth, who walked away with the gold. With just two subs, the orange jerseys had little chance when the junior red and black executed on transition. Up by six in the first, the Crusaders did an admirable job of holding the Jr. Stealth to just five goals in the remaining two periods. The lone orange goal came late in the third by a feed from Victor Guerara to Ben Bereja. For the Junior Stealth, Eli Batt had a hat trick, and Kaedyn Williams, Zack Lorenz and James Wehe had two each.
