In recent years, the games between Bigfoot (formerly Multnomah) and Steelhead (formerly Crease Monkeys) have been a little chippy, but on this day everyone seemed to be on their best behavior. Steelhead broke out to an early three nothing lead despite starting the game with only 10 guys, but the 'foot battled back and closed the gap to 1 goal leading into the fourth quarter.
Early in the fourth quarter Bigfoot had some good looks, but couldn't convert. Steelhead countered and did. The 'foot added the last two goals of the game to narrow the gap, but couldn't catch Steelhead who came away with the win.
The game featured the first goals of the season for Ken Hooton, new player Andy Klumpp and Oregon defenseman Justin Cooley who had two goals from the midfield including a scorcher (?) on man-up.
