Our next game in Ottawa saw SBW’s Ballhockey Team Dylan, playing their second game, taking on NR in a game that seemed deja vu-ish, as one man really made the difference. NR would open the scoring when Colin Kargus would get a pass from the tender. He would snap it home, while in front. Kargus was at it again as he sent a backhander. Up top, while in close and on the power play, 2-0.
Ryan Asstastic would extend the lead while burying one in front, 3-0. C. Kargus would complete his Hat Trick as he beat the keeper with a snapper. The shot was from his own side of half, 4-0.NR were in the driver’s seat to begin this game, but things can change quickly in this league. After about ten minutes, Dylan Cundell would finally get SBW on the board by burying his own rebound in front, 4-1. Kelly Hall would bury a rebound in front making it 4-2. Cundell would get SBW to within 1 as he bury it up top on a pass out front, 4-3.
Jonathan Levy would surprise everyone as he actually hit the net, with a blast from the face-off dot, and evened things up, 4-4. Cundell would complete his second Hat Trick on the day as he stole the ball behind the net and beat the keeper with a wraparound, giving SBW their first lead of the game, 5-4.
With time winding down, and on the man advantage, Cundell would bury a rebound in front making it 6-4 as we were headed into the break. NR held the edge in shots, 24-18, but couldn’t capitalize on their chances. Heather Ouimet would get one early as the defencemen slowed down the ball enough for her to steal it and have her wrister squeak in, 7-4. C. Kargus was basically Dylan. He was on fire as he buried his fourth goal of the game. A certain someone would give him the ball cleanly, tape-to-tape, and he would bury it low corner, 7-5.
Hall would get her second of the game as she buried it up top, on a cross floor pass, 8-5. With time winding down, and while on the penalty kill, Cundell would bury number five as he wristed it home from the face-off dot. That’s all she wrote as SBW go 2 for 2 and climb atop of the C standings with a 9-5 victory.
