The Lynx suffered their first loss of the season last weekend, a close 4-5 match-up against the Bradford Rattlers on Sunday after winning at home Friday against the Wiarton Schooners.
The weekend began on a high note Friday, as the Lynx hosted the Schooners and controlled the pace of the game throughout, with 73 shots on net. They ended the game with a 6-3 victory.
Despite the win, Mathieu Gaudette, Director of player recruitment for the Lynx, saw areas where the team could improve. “We had a bit of a slower start than we had envisioned. We thought it would be going to be a bigger spread than that right off the bat. We did have key components out that night; Donovan Rich and Tanner Webkamigad were scratched due to internal disciplinary action, Tshenapeu Thirnish was serving a suspension, among others. Three of our top 5 defensemen were out of the game. It’s the structure that Coach Jeff has put in place that started back in camp. There are rules to follow that he’s very particular about. From the get-go he said you have to work hard to make the lineup. He felt that those players didn’t follow what he said and decided to send a message Friday.”
Despite missing their top defensemen, the Lynx were still able to outplay the Schooners. However, the star of the game was the Schooners’ netminder, Keegan Bradley, who stopped 67 pucks.
On Sunday, the Lynx travelled to Bradford to battle the Rattlers. Despite coming up short, it was an excellent showing as the Lynx controlled a lot of the offense throughout the game.
