The Bench Returns

On Tuesday night, Blue squared off against York in a local match-up at Wilmette's Centennial Rink.  Blue was able to muster up 3 forward lines and 5 defense for the contest which began at 9. York scored first, but was soon thereafter met with a Blue equalizer on  Richards effort assisted by Armstrong. In the second, York took a two goal lead before a Gardiner slap shot, fed by Bunge, found the upper corner to bring the score to 3-2. In the third, York regained the two goal advantage before Suzue-Pan found the upper corner on a Wright feed. York, unfortunately, found the net twice, the last on a pulled goalie, rink long effort, for a 6-3 defeat. The final result did not reflect the valiant efforts of a rejuvenated Blue team. Goaltender Lee recorded 40 saves.
