Saturday, Nov. 10, Novice C2 Professional Electric Lakers played an exciting home game against the Kerry Park B2 Islanders — there second match up this season.
At the end of the first period Islanders led the score board 4-1, Lakers only goal was scored by No.11 Richard Bergman assisted by No.16 Seth Nahirnick.
Coaches Vaughan, Clayton and Atchison gave the kids a quick pep talk during the intermission and they started the second period on fire. Only 1:20 into the period, No.6 Jorden Nicholson scored his second goal of the season, assisted by No.14 Jackson Lee.
Lakers didn’t slow down, Bergman kept the fire going with four more goals with line mates Nahirnick and No.5 Chase McKinlay. Moving the puck up the boards created scoring chances for line mates No.1 Jake Walters, No.7 Taylor Svendson, and No.17 MacKenzie Callihoo. Islanders finish the period with a 7-6 lead.
During the third period Nicholson, No.18 Andrew St. James and Lee kept the pressure on. Two break-away chances by No.18 St. James, and a pair in the net by Lee tied the game 8-8.
The blue line was held, and the puck dumped deep by defense, No.3 Brenton Harris, No.2 Nicholas Major, No.4 Tyler Friesen, and No.10 Isabella Atchison. Then the opportunity came and — Atchison saw it — using the boards sending the puck forward, she took the break-away. Atchison scored her first goal of the season and the winning goal of the game.
Lakers took their first win of the season 9-8 over the Islanders. An outstanding game was played by No.15 Mayson Callihoo in net for the Lakers as goalie.
“Great team effort by all.” says coach Vaughan of the Novice C2 Professional Electric Lakers as they took their first win of the season against the Kerry Park B2 Islanders.
