Six Nations PeeWee’s one goal shy

OHSWEKEN – The Six Nation PeeWee’s came close, but didn’t get the win Saturday at the GPA against the Delhi Rockets. Instead, they had to settle for a hard fought, 4-3 loss.

There was no scoring in the first period, but Six Nations gave up a two-on-none breakaway early in the second period which Devin Boughner eventually scored on.

OHSWEKEN – The Six Nation PeeWee’s came close, but didn’t get the win Saturday at the GPA against the Delhi Rockets. Instead, they had to settle for a hard fought, 4-3 loss.

There was no scoring in the first period, but Six Nations gave up a two-on-none breakaway early in the second period which Devin Boughner eventually scored on.

Starting goalie Doug Powless made the initial stop and even stopped the rebound, but could not be faulted on the second rebound when Boughner scored on the backhand before the Six Nations defence could get to the play on a very bad line change.

Six Nations’ Connor Smith tied it a 2-2 at 4:08 of the 10 minute period from Blaine Martin and Johnny Miller.

Delhi came very close in the dying seconds of the period but Hailey Johnson, who had taken over for Powless at the midway point of the second, made a remarkable glove save to preserve the tie into the third period.

Johnson kept her team in the running with another dazzling save early on. But at 1:26, the Six Nations defence were caught looking at each other with a loose puck between them in a classic “I got it, no you get it” defensive mix up. Delhi’s Boughner slipped in between them, picked up the puck and slid it under Johnson to give Delhi a 3-2 lead.

It was Delhi goalie Mike Wong’s turn to shine when he make a spectacular stop at a crucial point in the game.

Energized by the save, Delhi’s Alyssa Long carried the pic to the other end of the rink and all the way to the back boards behind Johnson. Long passed it back out front where Shaun Nunn banged it home before Johnson could react.

But Six Nations would not give up and persistence paid off with Smith’s second of the game, unassisted to made it 4-3 with Delhi’s lead cut by one with 5:28 remaining.

Six Nations could not put another one past Wong and the 3-2 score held up as the final score in the Rockets’ favour.
