Sports Table saw a full panel this week as analysts Krystle, Lanne, Max & Riel watched in anticipation. Check out before game commentary on SBW’s Facebook page and video clips of top moments on SBW’s Instagram page. Two points separate these two teams in the standings, SBW look to win back to back games for the first time this season, while NRG were trying to win their 4th straight. New Lawrie aka Dylan Cundell would not disappoint. This game would see the most assists in SBW franchise history as the team would work together. Dylan Cundell would get SBW going on the right track scoring two back to back goals 20 seconds apart to make it 2-0 less than 5 minutes in.
NRG would cut the lead in half when Justin Gaudreault scored with a backhander in close. Dylan Cundell would score his hat trick goal 10 minutes later with a shot bar down from the slot. SBW now on the power play, Justin Gaudreault would cut the lead again with a nice short-handed goal, with less than a minute to go in the half. Lawrie would make it seem as though he knew top defender Claudia his whole life as they chatted & the buzzer would go for half with SBW up 3-2.
The second half would start out with no goals for 7 minutes as Baby Alex from SBW’s would continue to stop shot after shot. Eric Delisle would then give SBW a two-goal lead with a bullet from the point. SBW would add to their lead, a lucky bounce off of the goalie’s foot that we credit Jake for put SBW up 5-2 with 8:25 left on the clock. This goal seemed to wake up NRG as they went off scoring two straight, Colin Kargus would score the first and set up the second to get his team within a goal.
Sex would kill the comeback scoring easily as he was left alone with 2 minutes left & Captain would ice it in the last minute and just like the week prior Team Eric’s would end this game. SBW ending NRG winning streak and skipping off to the bar with this 7-4 final.
