Every game is an important one at this time of the year. A big one is set to be played Thursday night in Leamington. Trailing 2-0 in the best-of-seven Sutherland Cup final, the Stratford Warriors responded with a convincing 6-2 win at home Monday night to cut the deficit in half. "Tough playing a back to back at this point in the season." said Flyers head coach Dale Mitchell. "Especially second one being on the road."
The Warriors' offence awakened from its deep slumber in game 3 at home. After scoring only two goals in the first two games Stratford managed to put six pucks past Leamington goaltender Bryce Walcarius. "They had their backs up against the wall and played more desperate than us." Mitchell said.
The Flyers have home ice advantage heading into game 4 at the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre Thursday.
"Up to us to defend it tomorrow."
