Bullets Fall to 8Cers

The game between Contact Bullets and Ztec 8Cers in Division 2 came as no surprise. Ztec being a more experienced team defeated the Bullets 4-1. The game started off quite well for the Bullets although we were shorthanded compared to our previous game. Bullets even managed to score first, but that was the only goal that we mustered in the entire game. The play was tight but after only about 3 minutes into the game, the Bullets lost concentration and was letting the 8Cers run all over them. The Bullets were even rewarded with a penalty shot in the first period, but lack of experience and nervousness took over and we did not manage to convert it. Ztec scored all their goals in the first period.

The second period was more interesting as the Bullets improved on their mistakes and played a whole lot better. Ztec also pressured high looking for more goals in the second period, but it was the Bullets' goalie Lawrence who shone that day. Many shots from the attack of the 8Cers were blocked by the defenders, and the ones that were not blocked were shielded by the keeper. No goals in the second period.

A good show by both teams, as Ztec move closer to the top of the table and the Bullets continue to grow in developing strength in the team. Keep up the good work!
