Highland Storm Peewee AE up Two Games in Semi-Finals
The Highland Storm Peewee AE team travelled to Lakefield on Saturday March 3rd for game 2 of the semi-finals. It was a fast paced game from the start, with both teams looking for the first goal. The Storm team had a 4-minute power play to start the first period but Lakefield managed to hold them off. However, it was late in the first period when passes from Carter O’Neill and Matt Manning landed on the stick of Trevor Turner and he scored. It was an aggressive game that kept building, with many opportunities by the Storm team. The frustrated Storm team kept their composure after they found the net twice, but both goals were called back. It was late in the second period when the Storm turned it up a notch. An awesome pass by Mitch Billings landed on the stick of Jon Morrison. He made his way to the net and fired it in, making it 2-0, and that ended the second period. It was right off the faceoff when Lakefield finally scored, making it 2-1 at the 11 minute mark of the third. The aggression and frustration kept building for the Storm team. It was a tough third period, with just a one-goal lead. With just a minute left, Lakefield pulled their goalie with an attempt to tie, but Ben Schmidt’s accurate shot found the empty net to seal the game 3-1. Awesome job boys!! Keep it going!
