North Stars drop two on the road to Nordbord de La Sarre
Posted by: Laurent Gilbert on Mon Feb 19th 2018 8:02pm
A tough road weekend for the North Stars in LaSarre this past Sunday as the North Stars are down a Defenceman and a goalie in this one. In game one Billy Field gets the start in net. LaSarre got on the scoreboard midway through the first period as a shot from the corner was re directed in front of the net to make it 1-0 LaSarre. Billy Field is tested often in the first period making some good glove saves and turning back 9 shots to Timmins 2. LaSarre takes a two goal lead in the second period as Nordbord is in on a two on one and they make no mistake firing a shot top shelf to take a 2-0 lead. Just over a minute later Jenna Kim sends a pass along the boards to Ian Lachance who dangles a few defenders and he scores to make it 2-1. A few minutes before the end of the second period Ian sends a pass to Braeden Estabrooks at the point as he fires a shot which is tipped in front by Jakob Drobny and the game is tied at two. Timmins comes out in the third period skating hard this time its Ryan Koski up the wing he takes a shot just inside the blueline which hits a denceman but Braeden is there for the loose puck and he scores his first Atom goal to bring his team ahead 3-2. But that didn't last long as on the very next shift LaSarre would tie the game with a scramble in front of the net. The game would go into a shootout.
Nordbord 1st attempt: Goal
Timmins 1st attempt: Ian Lachance hits the post
Nordbord 2nd attempt: Goal
Timmins 2nd attempt: Brant Romaniuk scores
Nordbord 3rd attempt: Billy Field save
Timmins 3rd attempt: Mavrick Boucher is stopped on a pad save
In game two Billy Field is back between the pipes for back to back games. Mavrick Boucher got Timmins on the board just over a minute in the game as Brant Romaniuk passes to a wide open Mav in front of the net. Mav gets four chances to knock in the rebounds which finally beats the goaltender for the 1-0 lead. Seconds later LaSarre scores two quick goals to go up 2-1. Timmins would tie it before the end of the frame as Jakob Drobny sends a pass in the slot to Brant who toe drags a defender and goes five hole for the goal. Timmins takes a 3-2 lead to start the second period its Brant again with a backhander for the rebound goal with the helper from Mavrick. But on the next play the game is tied as LaSarre just won't go away. Minutes later LaSarre takes the 4-3 lead with yet another goal.
In the third period Timmins would tie it up at 4-4 as Ian Lachance with a great individual effort steals the puck and dangles a few defenders for the goal. La Sarre would score two more goals in the third to win the game 6-4. Billy Field stopped 12 shots in the game.
