Tough opening weekend for SCI Minor Bantams

Stratford Gazette

The SCI Contractors Minor Bantam MD Warriors had a tough opening weekend of their 2014-15 season.

On Saturday, Warriors hosted the Sarnia Sting as part of Warrior Day and fell 5-1.

The Sting opened the scoring early in the first period and then doubled their lead midway through the second. Warriors fought back to within one early in the third on a bullet drive from Jake Emerson, assisted by Josh Bossence. Unfortunately, Sarnia responded with three goals late in the third.

Jared Searles was strong on the forecheck all game and Eric Van Nes was a force on defence. Goaltender Paul Bennett kept the Warriors close for most of the contest.

On Sunday, the SCI Minor Bantam Warriors took to the road to face North London Northridge.

Again, Warriors gave up an early first-period goal, but then rebounded with a strong effort through the second, scoring the equalizer early in the third when Blake Strickland banged in a rebound from a scramble in front of the North London net.

Northridge scored two late goals to claim a 3-1 victory.

Tyler Lingard and Strickland created turnovers in the offensive zone all game, Neil Trainor led a number of rushes from the defence, and Eric Van Nes was strong in his own zone for the second game in a row.
