Warriors on the brink of elimination

If they are going to get past the Wilmott Wild, the Jr. C Six Nations Warriors will have to be perfect from here on in. The Wild won Game 1 of the best-of-five series 11-3 followed by Wilmott’s 14-12 win Thursday. Backs firmly against the wall, the Warriors began to push back Sunday afternoon at the Wilmott Arena

If they are going to get past the Wilmott Wild, the Jr. C Six Nations Warriors will have to be perfect from here on in. The Wild won Game 1 of the best-of-five series 11-3 followed by Wilmott’s 14-12 win Thursday.

Backs firmly against the wall, the Warriors began to push back Sunday afternoon at the Wilmott Arena for Game 3. The tide turned so violently in this game fans could have gotten sea-sick. The first period was all Wilmott Wild as they put five unanswered goals in for a 5-0 lead.

Kent Nagy made it 6-0 with a shorthanded goal at 5:44 of the second period which triggered an unbelievable 11-goal Warriors eruption to make it 11-6 before Wilmott could get its balance back at 8:55 of the third period.

Wilmott cut deeply into the Warriors lead later but it was Emmit Smith’s goal scored at 12:41 that turned out to be the Warriors’ game winner and series saver. Young AP goalie call-up, Mike Martin-Able, earned the win for the Warriors..

The Warrior goals were well distributed across the bench with Todd Thomas Jr. and Sam Gowland leading the way with two goals and an assist. Also chipping in were Emmit Smith (2G), Landon General (2G), and Mike Jordan, Shane Henry, Matt Miller and Kennedy Miller contributing a goal apiece. Ryan Buller scored four and assisted on three for the Wild.

The Warriors will have to keep their foot on the gas Thursday night, August 2nd, for Game 4 at the ILA. Should they win, Game 5 will be played Friday night, Aug. 3rd, at the Wilmott Arena.

In the other Division Finals, the Jr. C Peterborough Lakers lead the Whitby Warriors, 2-0, as of Monday night.
