MD Minor Bantam White vs Brantford 99ers
Submitted By Mike Willson on Saturday, September 28, 2019
Waterloo keeps it's unbeaten streak alive as they came up with a tie against Brantford 99ers.

The boys picked up where they left off last week with some hard forechecking, solid defense, stellar goaltending and downright awesomeness! Both teams pressed each other in the neutral zone. It seemed that neither team could get past each other's blue line. It wasn't until mid way through the period that there were some decent scoring chances. An unlucky bounce off the glass allowed Brantford to breakout of their zone and pressure Waterloo for the first time. Waterloo's defense kept Brantford from jumping on loose pucks in the zone. It was a very strange shot that saw the puck go off a Waterloo stick, jump 10 feet in the air and land behind the Waterloo goalie.

Waterloo controlled the play throughout the second period and had Brantford on their heels. There were a few glorious scoring chances but the puck did not want to reward the effort of Waterloo with a goal. Hunter McMurdo was deep in Brantford's zone when he forced his opponents to take a bad penalty. Witt and Banjo worked the give and go mid way through the power play when Enoch gingerly tipped in the pass from Calvin Witt.

Waterloo only gave up one scoring chance in the third when Brantford jumped on the puck in the neutral zone on a bad line change. Cole Matthews was more than up to the challenge as he completely stoned the shooter. A few penalty exchanges by the teams in the third did not allot a change in the score. When the final buzzer sounded; it was a 1 - 1 tie.

Great game boys. The defense was amazing and rock solid.

Good luck against Burlington Red on Sunday.
