Warriors Beat Bulldogs, 6-4
The Canton Bulldogs took on the Lincoln Sudbury Warriors at the Ice House Wednesday night. The Bulldogs came in with the same mindset as every game but tonight the way they played was different and it took awhile for the team to play smart and gain opportunities. The Warriors got on the board first in the first period. The game just didn’t go Canton’s way from the start and it was shown on the scoreboard. The Bulldogs managed to cut the lead in half 2-1 in the second after Chris Lavoie scored out front on a cross crease pass from Owen Lehane. The Warriors rallied again and scored two more by the end of the second period. The lead was 4-1 going into the 3rd period but anyone that knows this team knows that this contest was far from over and they were going to give 110% for the full 15 minutes. Right out of the gate came Johnny Hagan as he cut the lead in half again for the Bulldogs at 4-2. Then just four minutes later Jack Connolly walked and scored from the point to make it 4-3, but that was as close as Canton would get in this one as Lincoln Sudbury just kept coming and they scored two more goals. In the final minute senior captain Timmy Kelleher tipped in a shot from the point to lessen the deficit but that was not enough as the Bulldogs fell 6-4 to the Warriors. This was more than a lost game for Canton and you could see it in the rink the players didn’t quit until the final buzzer and gave it all they had. The unbeaten streak may be over but the season is not and there is still more work to be done, as the Bulldogs keep moving forward and be the best they can be.
