This weeks game was by far our best game of the season. From the start of the game, the players looked comfortable on the ice. The team controlled the pace of the game by moving the puck around and controlling possession.
Halfway through the first period, Nicholas picked up a loose rebound and scored the first goal of the game to make the score 1-0. Unfortunately a few minutes later, the team lost sight of the puck during a scramble in front of our goalie, allowing the Warriors to score a goal, making the score 1-1. With 2 minutes left in the first period, the Warriors got a penalty and C regained the lead for us with a power play goal, closing the period 2-1.
During the second period we got a penalty but still managed to control the the game by producing our first penalty kill of the game. Despite a few close attempts we were not able to improve our score and finished the period with the same score of 2-1.
During the 3rd period our passing game started to take its effect on the Warriors, forcing them to move around the ice a lot more and making them fall out of position.
In one of our offensive plays we scored one of our best goals this season. C received a great pass from Wilson leaving him wide open on the left side. C took it to the net and when in shooting position, slid it to the right side, thus beating the goalie and the fast approaching defensemen, to set up Moses for an easy open net tap in. 3-1 Baird Dbees!
With 3 minutes left in the third period and after killing off another penalty, Nicholas sealed the game with a very nice shot over the blocker of their goalie to make the final score 4-1
Julian our goalie had a very solid performance with 20 saves.
