The Cougars were off to Redvers on Nov. 16 to take on the 2017/18 League Champs. It was a fast paced hockey game that started right from the first puck drop.
The Rockets Jordan Miller, scores just 30 seconds into the game. Greenwood wasn’t going to let them have the lead for long as he nets one a minute later with Boutin and Morrison getting the assists. The Cougars take the lead just past the ten minute mark with a goal from Mason Belanger, assisted by Ty Currie and Cooper Fox. Redvers responds 2 mins later scoring on their penalty kill. Things get physical when Potapinski checks Currie into the open bench door. McLean comes in and straightens the Rocket player out. The period ends tied at 2.
The second period was scoreless, but certainly not from a lack of trying. Both teams played some great hockey all game. Action was at both ends with the Cougars and Rockets trying to score the go ahead goal. It would be great to know what the shots were as Cougar, Landon Audet, stood on his head all game!
To the third we go, tied at 2. Redvers again, wastes no time netting one as Brady Gaudet scores forty-four seconds into the period. The Cougars work hard, trying everything that they can to tie it back up! With the goalie pulled, we have a chance with just 2 seconds left, but it just wouldn’t go in. The Rockets win the battle 3-2.
