Warriors hold off Wilmot rally

WILMOT – After taking a 6-0 lead at the halfway point in the game Wednesday night, the Jr. C Six Nations Warriors thought they had the game in the bag. They didn’t. The Wild began to chip away at the lead and by the end of the second period, they carved that into a three goal deficit, still behind but much closer at 7-4.

The Warriors turned it up in the third and produced a 10-5 lead with 11 minutes left to play. But once again, with everything on the line, the Wild rallied with the last four goals of the game, unfortunately for them, it was one goal short as the Warriors took the 10-9 win and the series.

Bradley Hill scored thee on the night and Bailey Sky two with single goals going to Chauncey Hill, Wesley Whitlow, Vern Hill, Tyler Brown, and Lyle Hill.
