B-2 Midget Lions hang on for tie . . .

Friday, Oct. 12th - South Dundas’ Midget B House 2 Lions goaltender Michaela Mustard backstopped her team in a 2-2 tie at Morrisburg Arena on Thursday evening in spite of facing eight power plays from the Brockville Braves. The visiting Braves did score on a two-man advantage  when the Lions Nolan Henry and Cassidy Bilmer were sitting in the penalty box.

        Brandon Lovely opened the game scoring for South Dundas midway through the first period when he scored an unassisted goal on the Braves Nathan Belise. Late in the period Trystan Hummel gave South Dundas a 2-0 lead when she completed a Max Garlough play for a goal.

        Second period play offered a rough and tumble brand of play with both teams taking the opportunity to run at each other, and both serving minor penalties. Late in the frame Dylan Malette hammedred the puck past Mustard in a goal mouth scramble to bring his team within a single counter.

        The Lions undisciplined play in the final period led to five infractions and the tying goal by Brockville when Jared Boyd slipped the puck past the Lion’s net minder. Hunter Price drew the assist on the play.Neither team scored in the final ten minutes of the game, the last two minutes of which saw a checking from behind infraction called followed by a game misconduct call.
