John Bear Bantam AE Huskies

vs Woolwich Wildcats 11-Oct-2011



                The John Bear Bantam AE Huskies were looking for some payback on December 17 in Elmira as they faced the Woolwich Wildcats for the second time that week. Tuesday night saw the Dogs taking a 2 – 0 loss against Woolwich in what was a very hotly contested match at home. The boys were determined to do better on the road and persisted even though the home team were first on the score sheet on a 5-hole tally. The resolve hardened immediately as the Huskies played a total puck-possession game and took it to the opposition. The answer came when Austin Dale wired one off the goalie pads, which Matt Schmidt promptly smashed into the rigging to tie the contest. Both teams suffered minors going into the second but the Husky penalty killing was solid. Robbie Mason was instrumental in leading the defensive charge while Matt Santos kept the door shut on the back end. The Huskies rebounded in the form of blistering point shots from Jayden Marion on which the third one connected, being tipped in by Connor Ross. With the go-ahead goal in hand, the Dogs kept the pedal to the metal and worked on the insurance marker. The tag-team due of Dale and Schmidt once again came up big a minute later on a nice heads-up play. Dale fed Schmidt who walked it out into the slot and unloaded the package.  The Dogs were completely foiling the Wildcat attackers as they tried to force the zone. Santos registered a single shot on net in the third as the Huskies kept the play almost entirely in Wildcat territory. Blue-liners Alex Normandeau and Josh Jewitt were getting the job done guarding the points, allowing the top line to get one last goal. Nolan Forster made good on a wildly bouncing puck getting help from Filip Telescu and Brady Finn to solidify the very convincing 4 – 1 win. The win goes a long way to keeping the boys in a very respectable second place as the regular season winds down.
