The Stage is set!
For the third year in a row the Wild will meet their geographical rivals the Fergus Thistles in playoff action starting Monday night. The Wild eliminated the Fergus squad in 2016 three games straight before the Thistles returned the favour in 2017 eliminating the Wild in the Semi Finals. After dropping the first game to Oakville in Round 1, Fergus went on to win games 2 and 3 handily and will come to Wilmot Monday night firing on all cylinders.
The Wild will be waiting however as they look to avenge last year's playoff exit at the hands of the Thistles. In regular season action this season, the Wild took 2 of 3 games vs the Thistles and won their last meeting by a score of 16-10 which was lodged in the middle of a six game winning streak to end the season. The Wild have now won 8 straight as they knocked off Caledon in the first round two games to none.
The round two schedule is as follows:
Game 1 - Monday July 9th at Wilmot 8pm
Game 2 - Friday July 13th at Fergus (Elora Arena) 8pm
Game 3 - Sunday July 15th at Wilmot 3pm
Game 4 - Wednesday July 18th at Fergus (Elora Arena) 8pm (if necessary)
Game 5 - Thursday July 19th at Wilmot 8pm (if necessary).
This is always an intense series with good crowds so be sure to mark your calendars and get on out and cheer the Wild on to victory.
Just a reminder that admission will increase by $1 per round and Round two will be $6 per adult with kids under 12 still getting in free.
