Your Wilmot Wild played a heck of a game tonight and walked away with the Western Conference Champtionship title! The Boys worked hard and sustained the lead the entire game.
The Wild gave up the first goal of the night but stormed back with three of their own. But, in typical Six Nations fashion they were able to tie it up at 3-3 before too long. The Wild stormed back on offence and made it 5-3 before the end of the period and the Wild were looking like they were in control.
The second period was a battle for the Wild as their transition game was a bit shaky. The Warriors were able to battle after the Wild made it 8-4 and make it 8-6 before the Wild would add one on top to make it a 9-6 lead after 40 mins.
In the third, the Wild looked composed and never lost sight of the goal...punch a ticket to the Cup. The Defence would hold the fort in front of veteran tender Chenier and the offence would do their job in staying far enough in front to prevent a typical Warriors comeback. Your final score is 12-10 and the Wild move on to the Ontario Championship.
The Wild will play the Peterborough Jr. C Lakers in a best of 7 Meredith Cup final starting this Sunday at home in Wilmot. Gametime will be 3pm with Game 2 going Monday night in Peterborough. The rest of the schedule will be announced Friday so stay tuned.
Congrats to the Wildmen and their bench staff on a well deserved series win but the fun is just beginning.
