Your Wild let one slip away last night as the lead they had built up over the first period and a half disappeared in a flash. After amassing a 6-0 lead the Wild allowed 10 second period goals at the hands of the Warriors to trail 10-6 after two. A late third period comeback attempt fell just short as the Warriors get game three on the road.
The first period was all Wild as goaltender Andrew Chenier and the defence shut the door. Wildmen racked up 5 first period goals en route to a 5-0 first period lead after 20 minutes. First period goals were by Ryan Buller (2), Kent Radbourne, Sam Dramnitzke and Tyler Nagy.
The Wild would make it 6-0 early in the second period before the wheels fell off and the Warriors went for the jugler. Ten unanswered goals in the second by the Six Nations Squad the rest of the period took any wind out of the sails that the Wild had. Even a goalie change proved unprofitable as the bleeding continued. The score was 10-6 after 2 periods with the lone second period goal by Radbourne.
The third period was mostly the Wild offence again as the period break did them well. After allowing Six Nations the 11th goal the Wild offence stormed back in exciting fashion. The Wild would outscore their opponents 5-1 the rest of the way and climb to within one goal with still 3.5 minutes to play. But they could not find the back of the net again in spite of a valiant effort by the players and staff to pull one out. The Wild would get no closer than 12-11 with third period goals by Buller (2), Hayden Berger, Radbourne and Nagy.
Not the way the coaches drew it up but an exciting game nonetheless. Game 4 goes Thursday night in Six Nations with a potential game 5 on Friday night in Wilmot.
