The second started out just like the first with the SWAT jumping out with two quick goals but Gillis answered right back tying the game at 4’s. SWAT fired back with two more goals but the Mounties never quit and delivered two goals by Bot and Chesser to keep this game tied at 6’s going into the dressing room.
The third started out just like the first and second with the SWAT scoring two out of the gate. Chesser put away his second of the night to cut the lead to one but the SWAT answered right back to keep their two-goal lead. Henning responded with 4:38 to cut the lead to one and Bunio clutched up with 2:56 and tied the game up at 9’s! Sadly, the SWAT responded 53 seconds after and took a 10-9 lead and that is how the game finished.
The boys had a solid weekend and can take a lot away from these two games against a very solid SWAT team. The boys are now preparing for their rematch this upcoming weekend against the SWAT at home. They play the SWAT at Stu Peppard Arena on Friday, May 26 at 8pm and Saturday, May 27 at 3:30 pm. Followed by an away Sunday Matinee game at 1pm against the Miners at Servus Go Arena in St. Albert. Hope to see you folks out there and be sure to follow the Mounties on twitter @jramountieslax for game updates and more!
