KODIAKS GET REVENGE 3-0
The Eastern Kodiaks came back to Bridgton looking to settle a score. In their first meeting, BA defeated the Kodiaks 4-0. The Kodiaks came our hard and put pucks to the net every opportunity they had. Robby Campbell (Braintree, MA) stopped 10 shots in the first period, before a rebound gave the Kodiaks a 1-0 lead going into the first intermission. The Wolverines skated well and pressed the play, but were unable to capitalize on any chances. "We put the puck to the net, but didn't drive after the puck like we did the first time we played" said Head Coach Jonathan Lounsbury.
The Second period was a classic back and forth defensive struggle. Neither team generating much offense and neither team willing to pay the price for going to the front of the net. Bridgton did manage to outshoot the Kodiaks 10-7 for the period.
In the final period, Bridgton came out flying. Taking the puck down low, moving it quickly out of the defensive zone. BA desperately tried to even the score up. However, the Kodiak's goalie answered the challenge. The Kodiaks finally put the game out of reach when they scored on two more odd man rushes. BA did outshoot them 25-23, but couldn't find away to drive one home.
