Thunder Hockey Toppled by MacEwanPosted on: Oct 3, 2016
This weekend the Thunder fell twice to their cross town rivals from MacEwan University. Friday night at the new Downtown Community Arena, the Thunder showed determination fighting back from 2 goals down in the second period to make the score 3-3. However the Griffins responded right back and were able to beat the Thunder 5 to 3. Dallas McIntosh scored 2 in the game and Brady Bakke added his first of the year.
Saturday night the Thunder and Griffins played a tight game at Clareview. The Thunder opened the scoring with a goal by Rory Davidson mid-way through the second period but MacEwan responded with 3 quick goals to close out the period. The Thunder fought hard but could not get back even in the game eventually losing 5 to 2 after a Griffins empty net goal.
The challenge remains difficult next week as the young Thunder look to be victorious against the strong Augustana Vikings.
