The Wolverines traveled Wednesday to South Burlington to take on the Vermont Junior Glades(EJHL). The Wolverines had some definite issues in this game keeping up with the Glades. The Glades showed BA how moving your feet and driving to the net, creates scoring opportunities. BA was forced to chase the Glades around their zone and were outshot 16-4 in the first period. The very strong play of goalie Ian Edwards (Linden, MI/Motor City Chiefs) kept BA in the game. "Ian was spectacular through the first period. He turned aside shot after shot and we did very little to help him" said Assistant Coach Mike Meserve.
The second and third period was more of the same. Finally, with about 10 minutes gone in the third. The Glades broke through Edwards' armour for the first goal of the game. Edwards turned aside the first shot, the second and finally the Glades buried their third try. The Glades held a 1-0 lead until Bridgton Academy Alum, Ben Pearl (Essex, VT) snuck one in just under the crossbar and guarantee the Glades victory. Edwards finished with 42 saves in the loss.
BA will be looking to rebound 7pm Friday 10/30/09 at Bridgton Ice Arena, when they take on the National Sports Academy.
