It was a tale of two halves in the opener of the ACAC men's championship tournament, as the Olds Broncos built a large lead and hung on for a 5-3 win over the Medicine Hat Rattlers. The Broncos Fabian Gromenida put on a show, scoring early and often, as he had all four Olds goals as they took a 4-0 lead at half. However, the Rattlers rallied at half, scoring three straight to climb back within one. The Broncos bucked up late, as Ushinder Mutabazi scored with just over one minute remaining to secure the victory to go to 1-0. Medicine Hat falls to 0-1.
