After a morning loss, the Medicine Hat Rattlers knew they needed a victory to keep up in a competitive Pool B at the ACAC championships, and they delivered in a big way. The result was never in doubt as the Rattlers beat the UAA Vikings 8-2. In an interesting phenomenon, the Rattlers had the same four players score in both the first and second halves, with a late Vikings goal in each frame added into the mix. Medicine Hat ends the opening day with a 1-1 record, while Augustana falls to 0-2.
