Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens fans were treated to an exciting hockey game and an awesome performance by the team’s players on Saturday morning, October 18th!
With their first two season games behind them, Canadiens teammates reconvened at the Aitken University Centre following an intensive training week, poised to take on their Fredericton rivals once again – the Caps – and set the record straight!
The Canadiens’ #7 Peter Reynolds drew first blood several seconds into the first period (from #9 Jordan Wedge)! The hosting Caps responded swiftly a few minutes later… The remaining 11 minutes gave way to a back and forth showdown between two teams visibly hungry for the lead!
With 11:22 remaining in the second, the Canadiens’ #8 Ethan Ross (from #14 Jakob Whalen) fired one deep into the Caps’ net, putting the visiting team in the lead. The hosts carbon copied their earlier quick retaliatory strike and tied things up at 2 – 2 with a little under 10 minutes remaining in the second. The Caps took a 3 – 2 lead late in the period before both benches retreated to their respective dressing room.
Much like the earlier two periods, the third was anything but dull! Undeterred by the Caps’ now 4 -2 advantage, #7 Peter Reynolds went on the attack for the Canadiens and shattered the comfort of the hosts’ two goal lead! The Canadiens’ one player advantage in the remaining minute of the game offered many scoring opportunities for the visitors but their counterparts managed to hang on until time elapsed on the clock, claiming the 4 – 3 win.
For the Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens, this was undeniably a successful and rewarding game that clearly demonstrated how teamwork and teammate chemistry goes a long way!
