Call it a SWEEP!
Your Wild close out the weekend set with a win over the defending Meredith Cup Champions the Brantford Warriors. The Wild lead from start to finish in this one and it was an epic battle against a worthy foe from the get go.
The Wild owned the first period getting six unanswered goals on way to a 6-0 lead to take to the lockers after 20 minutes. The Wild's Andrew Cheniershut the door on any attack made by the visitors and really took any wind out of their sails that might have been there. First period scoring came courtesy of new comer Ryan Buller, Kent Radbourne, Luke Finoro, Sam Dramnitzke, Hayden Berger, Tyler Verutis.
The second period saw the tides shift and the Wild were not as dominant as they were in the first period. The Warriors seemed to steady themselves and send a message to the Wild that this one was far from over. The teams played to a 2-2 draw in the period with markers for the Wild by Berger and Verutis.
The third saw the scales flip completely as the Warriors outscored the home team 5-2 to make this a much closet affair than it seemed it would be early on. The Warriors never gave up and cuddos go out to them for not laying down but continuing to battle for a full 60 minutes. Third period goals for the home team scored by Matthew Wyman and Dylan Kuntz.
Overall a good weekend for the Wildmen who now sit atop the Western standings with an unblemished 3-0 record. Still much work to do in the discipline category but a win is a win on this day.
The Wild are next up this Thursday night for an offsite home game in Plattsville against the Six Nations Warriors. The Warriors are currently undfeated as well with a 2-0 record so this is shaping up to be yet another closely contest affair.
