vic­to­ries against Tagwi (3-0) and la Ci­tadelle (3-2).

Bounce­back for Tagwi

The Warriors showed some spunk in their sec­ond out­ing, against Holy Trin­ity, skat­ing to a 5-4 vic­tory.

Tagwi came out of the gate with early pres­sure, but it was the Fal­cons that scored first, cap­i­tal­iz­ing on a rush play that set up a goal for Vail­lan­court. As­sist­ing were Joe Robertson and Avery MacCuaig.

The Warriors soon re­sponded, with quick back-to-back mark­ers. The first, off a de­flec­tion, was scored by Ja­cob Nolan, from Doug White. That was fol­lowed up with a Brody Vil­leneuve goal, off a feed from Nolan.

Fol­low­ing a score­less sec­ond stanza, Tagwi dou­bled its lead mid­way through the third frame, when Nolan MacMil­lan found the back of the Fal­cons net, as­sisted by Adam Carter.

HT re­sponded, as Roenick Jodoin dashed in from the blue line. Charles La­plante was cred­ited with a helper.

Tagwi, on a play that the Fal­cons bench felt was off­side, re­stored its two-goal ad­van­tage, when Nolan struck the tar­get, fed by MacMil­lan and Ashtyn Nu­gent.

With 1:34 re­main­ing, Lan­don Brown­lee cir­cled from be­hind the HT net and poked home the puck, for what would be the game-win­ning marker. Vil­leneuve picked up the lone as­sist.

The Fal­cons weren’t cooked just yet, though, mak­ing the fin­ish an ex­cit­ing one, as the boys scored twice in a 35-sec­ond span.

De­clan McDon­ald scored, from Arm­strong, and Kar­son Ma­lyon, on a man ad­van­tage with the goal­tender pulled, notched the marker that brought the Fal­cons within one. Robertson and Jeremy La­tour had the as­sists on the play.

The wan­ing sec­onds were fran­tic, but Tagwi sur­vived, hand­ing Holy Trin­ity its sec­ond de­feat of the day.

Tour­na­ment two of league play is sched­uled for Dec. 19, in Mor­ris­burg, with games run­ning on the hour, be­gin­ning at 8 a.m. All seven teams will see ac­tion.
