The next day it was a tilt against the Mavs, a team sporting three National Team members. The first quarter was a tight affair with the Jets edgin out inf ront 3-2.

Despaigne and Ugray each notched 4 goals while Tuna Tali, Paul Spooner, Hart and Topan scored once.

The Jets were never in the game at the start falling behind 6-1 into the second quarter.
