Waterford Wildcats (3) vs. Unifor 3264 (1)
Submitted By Dave Osmond on Monday, February 13, 2017
The Unifor 3264 LL Bantam team dropped a 3-1 decision tonight as they found themselves with a shortened bench due to illness and injury. With the bench three players short the Unifor 3264 squad simply ran out of gas in the defeat.

After shutting out the Wildcats in the front end of a home and home series, the home side would give up the opening goal of the game 2:18 in. Unifor would tie the game with 2:07 left in the first period when center Liam Carson took a pass from winger Dylan Russell and snapped a shot past the Waterford goalie.

The home side would continue the momentum into the second and Carson would get a great chance but an equally nice glove save by the Wildcats goalie would keep the game tied. 

The game remain tied going into the third period but the short bench would eventually catch up to Ingersoll. Early in the third period a turnover just outside the Unifor blueline would allow the Waterford forward to walk in and score the eventual game winner. 

While Unifor tried to battle back fatigue was evident as they were losing puck battles and mis-firing on passes. Forward Evan Wade tried to spark his team with a persistent forecheck causing the Wildcats defence to turn the puck over a number of times. However, they could not generate the opportunity that would tie the game. 

Unifor would be given a powerplay late in the period but would give up a short handed goal to finish the scoring and giving the visitors the 3-1 win. 

The team is in action again tomorrow night when they take on the other Ingersoll Bantam LL team. Game time is 8:00 pm.
