Pt. Edward Bantam's Squeak out with a tie in Season Opener
special to sarniasports October 29th, 2011


Point Edwards Bantam Blackhawks opened their regular season with a tough penalty ridden battle against Mt Brydges to sneak out a 1-1 tie to start their Lambton-Middlesex league season.


The Hawks began their season in the penalty box early when they got two early penalties to start the game shorthanded. Their penalty kill played well to keep the Cougars off the score board. Most of the period saw play back and forth between the two ends with neither team getting any good scoring chances with defense playing a big role.


The second period saw Mt Brydges take an early 1-0 lead during a scramble in front of the Hawk’s net. Shortly thereafter, the Point got into penalty trouble and had to play two men short for a minute as the period neared the midway point but were able to fend off the Cougars charge with another great penalty kill. Mt Brydges saw themselves get into penalty trouble during the second half of the period but the Hawks were unable to capitalize on the opportunity and the period ended 1-0 for the Cougars.


The third period saw the Hawks put more pressure on the Cougars and the pressure paid off midway through the period when Smith scored to tie the game at 1-1 with assists going to Waddell and Kootstra. The Hawks hit the penalty box two more times before the game ended in a 1-1 tie.
