Black Wolves Fall 4-2 to Jr. Knights
The Pee Wee Black Wolves and London Jr. Knights faced off in game two of their series on Sunday afternoon.
The Knights got on the board early in the first when the London forward was left alone at the side of the net to make it 1-0. The Wolves played hard for the rest of the period and managed to tie the score in the final minute of the opening frame while on the power play. Zack Walsh banged in a loose puck to get the Wolves back in the game heading into the second period. Lucas Snider and Drayton Duckett assisted on the goal. The Wolves kept up the pressure to open the second. The Knights were awarded a penalty shot half way through the period but Brandon Thompson made a great blocker save on London's top sniper. The Wolves gained some momentum from that save and Tyrell Brown scored a seeing-eye goal soon after off a nice individual play to put the Wolves in the lead. Thompson kept up his strong play in net making several big saves, including a few breakaways. The Knights could only be held off for so long as they managed to convert on a nice two on one play. The game changer came late in the second when Duckett had a good chance to score but it was the Knights that ended up taking the puck up ice and taking the lead with less than a minute to go in the period. The Wolves battled hard in the third but couldn't get the equalizer. The Knights added an insurance marker off a slap shot from the point to take game two of the series by a 4-2 score.
The Wolves will try to stay alive in the series when they travel to London on Thursday.
