OHSWEKEN— It’s clear that Six Nations PeeWee L#2 forward Boden Hill has a burning love for hockey.
Whether it was eagerly stepping on the ice, shooting the puck or fist pumping after scoring, Hill always does it wearing his trade mark smile.
“It’s good. It makes you feel good,” Hill said about scoring, which he did twice during a Saturday, February 8th 3-2 home win against the Simcoe Warriors #2 team. Displaying positive sportsmanship Hill complimented them by saying, “They were a fast team, who passed a lot.”
Getting that early douse of momentum, Six Nations got the Gaylord Powless Arena fans rocking when only 14 seconds into regulation they got on the board as forward Aason Hill took a pass before skating in and scoring the opening goal.
Meanwhile, Six Nations netminder Tsohadide Swamp, proved to be money as she didn’t allow many rebounds in shutting out Simcoe in the opening period.
Both teams had golden fist period scoring opportunities including one by Boden Hill which with only 43 seconds remaining, saw him skate coast to coast, but couldn’t quite cash in with Six Nations second goal.
Grabbing center stage in the second was Swamp who continued her standout play in making countless big saves in what was a scoreless second.
“Our goaltending was amazing,” Hill said. “We were fast on our skates.”
Boden Hill showcased his offensive prowess when 42 seconds into the third he scored on a long shot from outside the blue line. Moments after the goal which made it 2-0, Hill enthusiastically pumped his arms in celebration which is what minor hockey is all about.
“I got two goals,” Hill excitedly said after the game. When asked about his goal celebration this forward said he picked up the move from “My brother.”
Simcoe would respond with a goal to slice the deficit in half before Hill finished things off with his second goal as the Six Nations PeeWee LL#2 extended their winning streak to two.
