Your WiId came out firing on all cylinders today and showed the Thistles why they won top spot in the West regular season. The Wild got up early and rode a hot goalie and a tight defense to a series sweep over a very talented Fergus squad.
The Wild scored the only goals in the first period and were able to put 5 past the Fergus starter. The defence and goalie Andrew Chenier shut the door and stifled any attack by the Thistle offence. First period goals were scored by Hayden Berger (2), Matthew Wyman, Sam Dramnitzke and Kent Radbourne.
The Thistles would score first in the second but the WIld would answer but would lose the period 2-1 to the visitors. Score after 2 periods was 6-2. Second period goal scored by Radbourne.
The Wild came out firing and won the third period 2-1 over a tired Thistle squad. Third period goals by Verutis and Radbourne making your final score 8-3. Hats off to Chenny and the entire Wild D as the saying is true, Offence wins games but Defence will win championships.
The Wild advance to the Western Conference finals which will begin next Sunday afternoon, July 22nd at 3pm. Our opponents are not yet know as we await the winner of the other semi final between Six Nations and Brantford.
Congrats to the Fergus Thistles Jr. C Lacrosse on a great season and we look forward to next year when the battle between the two will continue.
