Ralfs Circenis had a hattrick in the match and was named the games 2nd star. Also finding the back of the net included Nikita Eruslanov and newcomer Deivids Tempelmanis.
Tempelmanis was signed from free agency this past week and is expected to be a top player for the club this season. The overage veteran forward spent last year in a Tier 3 USA based league.
Despite the loss, Almaguin still holds a respectable 8-5-0 record sitting fourth place in the North Division.
