[NLL REPORT] BLACKWOLVES def. STEALTH, 13 - 9

BLACKWOLVES def. STEALTH,13-9

It was a game of runs at Mohegan Sun Friday night as the BLACKWOLVES outlasted the VANCOUVER STEALTH, 13-9. The run started with the STEALTH scoring the first two goals of the game. The BLACKWOLVES finally answered with two goals of their own in the final minute of the first. REILLY O’CONNOR put one past BRODIE MacDONALD followed by JAY THORIMBERT who scored directly off the FO for the marker in the final minute. 

The BLACKWOLF right side woke up a bit to start the second as KEVIN CROWLEY and KYLE BUCHANAN each scored twice to extend the BLACKWOLVES lead to 6-2 capping off a 6-0 run. Then it would be the STEALTH’S turn for a run. They would score the next 7 goals to take the 9-6 lead heading into the 4th. 

The 4th would be all BLACKWOLVES as they finished the period outscoring VANCOUVER, 7-0 for the 13-9 Final



Transition and Face offs were the Catalyst. 

Once again THORIMBERT was an unsung hero winning 16/26 draws, including many timely ones in the decisive 4th. He also stuffed his stat sheet with a goal and an assist with 15 LBs for good measure. The BLACKWOLF transition was huge in the 4th as ADAM BOMBERRY (1g) and COLTON WATKINSON (1g, 2a) led the charge. JOEL COYLE also had a great shorthanded transition goal as well. BOMBERRY scored on a beautiful feed from goalie AARON BOLD and his freshly painted mask for maybe the nicest goal of the game. To me this was BOMBERRY’S best performance in a BLACKWOLF uniform. The BLACKWOLVES were also able to take advantage of the short change in the final frame as well. 


SHAWN EVANS was able to come directly off the bench for a shorthanded goal and put pressure on VANCOUVER throughout the fourth. 


The BLACKWOLVES held a 70-56 loose ball advantage. They also had a slight lead 50-48 on shots on goal. The BLACKWOLVES are in action next at ROCHESTER on January 13, while winless (0-3) VANCOUVER hosts TORONTO on January 6
