Well, no real howling and a bit better than a whimper – let’s call it a single bark for the weekend.
In the 1st game on Friday night, the Wolves were able to stay competitive – at least for the 1st half of the game – tied at 2 at the end of the one, and only down 2 at the halfway point…but then the wheels fell off and everything came to a grinding halt! 6Nations with 8 unanswered goals and the final score – 6Nations 12 – Werewolves 2. Sadness….
The Saturday morning game promised a bit more competition – Werewolves were able to stay in the entire game losing 3-6 to 6Nations#2 (RezDogs) – pretty good game but the result could have been better. In the afternoon Windsor was the opponent and London opened a thin lead early and was able to maintain it through the entire game despite having difficulty with Windsor’s massive goaltenders. Final score Werewolves 6 – Windsor 3 and London’s first win of 2018 goes in to the record books!
Sunday morning with a squad depleted by nagging injuries and minor coaching commitments, London pushed to an early 5-3 lead over Barrie but was unable to hold on. Barrie caught up and pulled ahead by 2 going in to the last minutes of play. Werewolves were able to claw within a goal but the last minute push for a tieing goal was unsuccessful – final score – Barrie 7 – Werewolves 6. Not too bad of a game – some promise for the future.
Next is Niagara in 3 weeks August 10-12 at Niagara-on-the-Lake.
See you then.
Go Werewolves of London …..Arooooooh!
