BURFORD – Had the Six Nations PeeWees lost against the Burford Coyotes, it would have been a travesty of justice Saturday afternoon at the Burford Arena. The Six Nations team was all over the home team but could not solve the problem of Gabe Alexander in the Burford net, especially in the first period, which ended scoreless.
But in the second, it was Six Nations goalie Marlee Montour making several big saves including two clear-cut breakaways. A giveaway sent Burford’s Shelby in alone on the Six Nations goal to give the Coyotes a 1-0 lead.
Zach Martin scored for Six Nations after taking a pass from himself off the boards and wristing one high to the glove side. There was no scoring in the third and teams split the two points in a 1-1 tie game.
Six Nations coach Wayne General was pleased with the point considering he had a short bench, and was missing three or four players.
“The last two games have been ties, but we’ve been shorthanded the last three games. They played awesomely today and I can’t say anything negative about the game. We made one mistake and they ended up scoring on it,” said General.
The Six Nations PeeWees are now 4-4-2 on the young season.
