Monday February 26th – Riels explode for a 7-4 Win – BOXSCORE
It was a great turnout for the “Fight Bullying” game! St. Boniface Minor & the St. Boniface Seals were in attendance! As both teams were tied in points, this was a pivotal game for both clubs.
In the first period, veteran goalie Reid Pennington would make some key saves to keep the game tight. Midway through the period, the Twisters would capitalize on the powerplay making it 1-0. The Riels would answer scoring 2 powerplay goals. Austin Kossack would tie the game with assists going to Burmey and Bartley. Tresoor would add the second powerplay goal with assists going to Burmey & Lefko. With just two seconds remaining in the first, Justin Durupt would score his 6th of the season. Assists went to Braun and Eric Durupt.
The Riels would continue the momentum in the second period. Red hot forward, Jacob Tresoor would add another goal 19 seconds into the second. Assists going to Burmey & Kossack. Midway in the second, Dawson Braun would score a nifty goal top shelf to increase the lead to 5-1. Assists going to Jean Paul & McCaughan!
The third period would get a little chippy. The Riels would add 2 more goals on the powerplay to increase the lead to 7-1. Tresoor would score his 3rd and 4th goal! The Twisters would add three goals midway in the period, but that would not be enough. With the win, the Riels would clinch a playoff berth! Reid Pennington made 32 saves in the win!
