Ivan Milovidov scored two goals while Anderson Cornwell tallied a hat trick in a losing cause as the Rochester Junior All-Star Team  defeated the Buffalo Junior All-Star Team, 8-6, and win the Tim Horton Memorial Cup in the first of three games as part of the 18th Annual Scotty Bowman Cup series. The game was played at Buffalo’s KeyBank Center.

This first game featured boys who are junior high school players from the Buffalo and Rochester regions.  Instead of playing the traditional three periods, each game was played in 22-minute halves.

Rochester jumped out to first-half 5-2 lead. Scoring for the Section V team was Milovidov (Batavia-Notre Dame United High School), his first goal and single goals by Keegan Ahern (Pittsford HS), Jack Callery (McQuaid HS), TJ Swinson (Webster-Schroeder HS) and Maddox Smith (Canandaigua HS).

Buffalo goals were scored by Cornwall with three goals (St Joseph’s Collegiate Institute) and Eric Cunningham (Williamsville North HS).
