By Wyatt Williams
The Blenheim Blades took advantage of the Wallaceburg Thunderhawks’ undisciplined play in the third period to post a 7-3 home win Sunday night.
Early in the third period, trailing 3-1 the Thunderhawks scored two goals in less than a minute to tie the game at 3-3. Wallaceburg’s Nicholas Wylie scored to bring his team to within one, 12 seconds later, while on a power play, Cohen Veenstra tied it up. Shortly after this, the wheels fell off, as the Thunderhawks found themselves down two men.
The Blades reeled off three power play goals by Zach Van Boxtel, Darby Lemieux, and Craig Spence to regain a 6-3 lead. Tate Bowden would score his second of the game on an empty net, for a final score of 7-3.
In the first period, the Blades had goals by Austin Drew and Tate Bowden. At the 7:02 mark of the second, Connor Roth gave the Blades a 3-0 lead. Wallaceburg’s Josh Remsik cut the lead to 3-1 to end the second.
