Olsen's Heroics Vault Aces to Top of Standings
January 11 - With the tying goal late in the third period followed by the game winner in overtime, Whitney Olsen secured the victory for the Manulife Macau Aces, toppling the AsiaXPAT Kowloon Warriors 4-3. Both teams came out refreshed and determined to start the second half of the season on the right foot but it would ultimately be the Aces who would taint a valiant effort from Kowloon. Captain Gregory Smyth had a goal and two assists for the Warriors who looked like they were on route to their first win since November 8th. An overtime point aids their playoff aspirations slightly while Macau jumped back into first place, a spot they have not held since early October.
