Sharks Vs. Warriors

8:30pm Gateway Recreation Center

City Midget AAA

            There was some great Wednesday night AAA Action, with the City Midget Sharks hosting the Warriors at Gateway Arena. The 5th place Sharks went into the game down 7 guys due to injuries and suspensions, although still looking to create a bigger separation in the standings between then and the Warriors.

The Warriors started off the scoring early in the game on a 5 on 3 power play with a shot from the point by # 6, Declan Curtis. The Warriors held the lead up to the 5 minute mark until a late period push by the Sharks, where they added two goals in under a minute, scored by #8, Chris Mealy and #14, Brandon Ambrozik. The Warriors ended the period by getting the next goal to tie it up, scored by #7, Jack Kaiser. The shots at the end of the 1st period were 9-6 for the Warriors.

Half way through the 2nd, the Warriors regained the lead with a goal from # 9, Bryden Kiesman. Just 35 seconds later, the Sharks rebounded with a goal by #14, Brandon Ambrozik, his second of the night. In the last 5 minutes, the Sharks were awarded a penalty shot after being pulled down on a breakaway. #14, Brandon Ambrozik put home his 3rd of the night for the hat trick. The shots at the end of the 2nd were 24-11 for the Warriors.

Going into the 3rd period, with the Sharks up 4-3 to start, the 3rd period was full of back and forth action. Around the 7 minute mark, the Warriors managed to tie up the game again, with a goal from #19, Dylan Waldmo. With the Warriors going to the penalty kill with under 2-minutes left, the Warriors coaching staff called their timeout. Almost immediately after this, the Warriors added a short handed goal by #7, Jack Kaiser. To finish off the game, the Warriors # 9, Bryden Kiesman scored the empty net goal to make the final score 6-4 for the Warriors.
