Point Edward Bantam's take Hard First Loss
sarniasports November 1, 2011

 Point Edwards Bantam Blackhawks hosted the Mt Brydges(Blue) Cougars team in Lambton-Middlesex league action and took a hard 7-0 loss in a heavy penalized game which saw the Hawks take eight penalties .


The Hawks hit the ice aggressive and they paid the price when they received a 2 minute boarding call that put them short-handed one minute into the game. The Cougars couldn’t capitalize on the opportunity but did score shortly after the penalty was up when they caught the Point pressuring deep into the Cougars end which allowed them to get a 2-on-1 break to take an early 1-0 lead. The defense made some key plays with Collins stopping a breakaway around the 4 minute mark to keep it 1-0 going into the second period.


Early in the second the Cougars made it 2-0 on a low screen shot from the blue-line. From that point forward, the rest of the period was played short-handed for both teams as seven penalties were recorded with four going towards the Point. The Hawk’s penalty killing played well as they only gave up 1 shorthanded goal but by the time the period had ended the Cougars racked up a 5-0 lead.


After a quick break between the second and third, the Hawks managed to settle in but still couldn’t stay out of the box as they tallied another two penalties for a total of eight for the game. Midway through the period, they began getting some good opportunities but the Cougars had a hot goalie. Mt Brydges were able to poke in two more goals to end the game 7-0.


The Point’s next game is November 5th when they are home to Strathroy at 7pm.
