NOVICE PELHAM PANTHERS NARROWLY MISS TAKING TWO GAMES
The Panthers had a busy weekend, playing host to the St. Catharines Warriors the next day. The first period saw no scoring from either team, with Panthers defensemen Brody Miltenburg, Aaron Lee and Caleb Walton playing strong on the puck. Pelham opened the scoring in the second with an unassisted goal from Cassidy Blanchard who shot it in off her own rebound. The Warriors came back to tie it up and moved ahead with a second goal with only seconds left in the period. Pelham ties it up in the third with a goal from Luke Breadner. The Warriors battled back with 2 quick goals to put them ahead. The Panthers claw their way back in the game with 2 more goals from Breadner. Despite pulling goalie Ryan Leduc in the last minute after a strong effort, Pelham ultimately comes up short, losing 5-4.
Following their busy weekend, the Panthers took a field trip of sorts to watch the Canadian World Juniors practice in St. Catharines at the new Meridian Centre. The team enjoyed watching an elite group of athletes practice at such a high level. Pelham plays host to Thorold this weekend at the Pelham arena.
