Blaz­ers over Kanata in a flurry of cards

Seaway News - - SPORTS -

The Blaz­ers U-16B played their sec­ond game on home turf against the Kanata Team and pre­vailed by a score of 2-1. This game saw the ref­eree dis­tribut­ing six cards to both teams. The Se­away Blaz­ers had to de­fend them­selves with only 10 play­ers for the last 20 min­utes. The Blaz­ers eas­ily took con­trol of the game in the first half with a huge ball pos­ses­sion dom­i­nance. The Blaz­ers were re­warded at the 34th minute when Lo­gan Shaw redi­rected a ball from the foot of Shayne Le­feb­vre-Lalonde with a header that mys­ti­fied the goal­keeper. The first half ended 1-0. The Blaz­ers con­tin­ued their good play in the sec­ond half but could not cap­i­tal­ize on sev­eral op­por­tu­ni­ties. Kanata came back into the game by scor­ing a goal on a di­rect kick from close prox­im­ity to make it 1-1. Play­ing with one less player in the last min­utes of the game, the Blaz­ers did not want to set­tle for the draw and were putting pres­sure in the of­fen­sive zone. This re­sulted in a goal by Lo­gan Shaw, his sec­ond of the night on a blast from the penalty box area at the 90th minute. Joel Le­vac pro­vided the helper on this goal. The Blaz­ers went on to win 2-1. Goal­keeper Tyler Young made some key saves in the sec­ond half to keep his team in the game.
