This week was our turn once again to play the early 6h45 game. So far all of our losses have come on an early game, so we need to work on overcoming or sleep inirtia.
The game once again started the wrong way with the Warriors scoring an early goal to take an early lead. A few minutes later C managed to get us all level with a goal. He was assisted by Nicholas and Moses. For the remainder of the first period we could not get into our characteristic passing game, so we allowed the to Warriors to dictate the pace of play. Before we knew it we were 4-1 down.
With the start of the second period,we started to find our feet and started to play as a team once again. With 1:12 remaining in the period C got his second of the game with a short handed goal off a very nice assist from Nicholas.
In the third period we gradually started to control the pace of the game and straight away C managed to get his hatrick of the game to bring the score to 4-3. The rest of the period was a tightly fought battle, with a lot of close calls. With 1:35 left in the game, we finally managed to equal the game with a Nicholas goal, assisted by C and Moses. Unfourtunatly with 45 seconds left the Warriors managed to get one last goal against the run of play, to clinch the game 5-4.
Despite the loss, we were very poud of our boys. Even when we were behind by three goals, the team did not give up. In fact they rolled up their sleeves and worked harder to get them selves back into the game.
