In a highly anticipated game one in Cross Lake, the fourth place Islanders would host the fifth place Norway House North Stars. After a back and forth first period that would see Cross Lake head to the intermission with a 3-2 lead, they would come out for the second period and score four quick goals to take a 7-4 lead into the second period break. The North Stars would come out in the third with two quick goals looking to close the gap, but the Islanders would add four more of their own to wrap up an 11-6 game one victory to stake them to a crucial 1-0 series lead.
Scoring for the Cross Lake Islanders were Chris Ross, Brayden Whiskey with two, Logan Evans with two, Dennis Scatch with two, Braeden Monias, Kadin Ross, Clinton Armstrong and Justin Dorion.
