Minor Peewee Rep Warriors Have a Roller Coaster Weekend On The Road
Submitted By Jessica Walters on Wednesday, November 20, 2019
The Royal LePage Hiller Realty Minor Peewee Rep Warriors had a busy up and down weekend on the road.  The Warriors did the long trips to Hamilton, Burlington and London in the three days.  Thankfully for two of three games the team enjoyed the comfort of the upgraded Cherry Bus to make the trips more enjoyable.  On Friday, the Warriors took on the Hamilton Huskies.  The Huskies dominated the game, and were able to get on the board quickly.  Tessa Burdett scored the lone Warrior’s goal, supported by Charlie Holloway that broke the Husky’s shutout.  The Warriors were unable to catch the Huskies in the 4-1 loss. 

On Saturday, the Warriors turned the tables.  The Warriors caught the bus again this time to Burlington to face the Burlington Jr. Cougars White.  The first period the game was a nail bitter with Burlington getting the first goal on the board.  Ryan Cassone was the first to get on the scoreboard for the Warriors near the end of the first, after receiving a pass from Boden Lyons.  Less than a minute later Nathan Slaght added Stratford’s second goal when Cole Hishon fed him a pass.  Stratford knew they needed to step up their game when they looked up at the tied score.  The speech from coaches in between periods woke up the sleepy looking Warriors and the game certainly changed it’s pace. The Warriors looked like a whole new team.  The passes were crisp.  The skating was smooth, and the communication could be seen between teammates.  Owen Bridges scored the first goal in the second, with a pass out front from Bronwyn Langis.  A few minutes later Bridges added a second goal unassisted.  The smooth moves of Slaght got him his second goal of the game with the support of Rylan DeBoeck with 42 seconds left in the second.  The Warriors continued to gain momentum as they entered the third.  DeBoeck got the first goal in the third, as Charlie Holloway slipped him a pass.  Slaght continued to be on fire adding two more goals for a total of four goals in the game.  Slaght’s third goal was assisted by Langis, and his fourth from Bridges and Mason Bauld.  As the period was winding down Cassone added his second of the game, when he scored assisted by DeBoeck.  DeBoeck finished the game with a sweet backhander unassisted to give the Warriors a 10-2 win.  Though the game was high scoring,  the score does not reflect the outstanding play by Burlington’s goaltender.  Stratford peppered the goalie who faced 52 shots.

On Sunday the Warriors drove to London to play the GLHA JR Mustangs White.  After a fire alarm scare the game started with London dominating  the first two periods getting onto the scoreboard quickly in the first.  The Warriors needed to get their game under control.  They defended fiercely, but struggled to get a goal on the board.  Finally in the middle of the third Ryan Cassone shot one passed the goaltender unassisted.  The Warriors were able to keep the score to a 2-1 loss.
