Wild Put Stangle Hold on Series with Victory on the Road
July 14, 2018
It's was another hot night in Elora and a barn burner to boot! The temp was up both on and off the floor and the Wild were able to prevail when all the dust settled and claim victory on the road.
As in game 1, the Thistles struck first early in the first in the first period and it took the Wild till the 5 minute mark of the first period to knot things at 1-1. The Wild would get the go ahead goal with under a minute left to go in the first period and lead 2-1 going to the room after 20 minutes. First period goals by Kent Radbourne and Hayden Berger.
The Thistles would mount a charge in the second frame and even take the lead before the Wild were able to score and get 2 in the final minute of the peruiod to take a 6-5 lead to the room after two periods. Second period goals by Tyler Verutis (2), Luke Finoro and Sam Dramnitzke.
The Wild came on firing in the third and after making it 10-6 they chased the Fergus goalie from the confines of his cage and a new tender was ordered. While the Thistles would get a couple goals late the Wild would ice it on an empty netter by Nagy with under a minute to play to seal the deal and put a stangle hold on the series. Third period goals by Tyler Nagy (2) Tyler Verutis(2), and Finoro.
The Wild now lead the series 2-0 with game 3 going on Sunday in WIlmot for a 3pm start. Great game by both squads tonight and we expect it to be another close one come Sunday.
