Undefeated Through Six
(Bradford, ON; September 24th, 2012)
The Bradford Rattlers were able to keep their undefeated win streak alive through two games this weekend. First, a 4-2 victory over the South Muskoka Shield followed by a 9-6 win against the Temiscaming Titans.
The Rattlers traveled to Bracebridge Memorial Arena on the Friday to take on the Shield. Bradford jumped out to a three goal lead through the first period and never looked back. Sebastian Forslund scored his 6th and 7th goals of the season in the victory and was named first star. Gallo recorded his first goal as a Rattler and LoParco turned away 29 shots in the 4-2 victory.
At home on the Sunday, Bradford hosted the defending league champions Temiscaming Titans. Andreas Norrby and Conor Smith each scored hat tricks to lead the Ratts to the 9-6 win. Smith now leads the Rattlers in goal scoring with 8 goals in just 6 games. LoParco stood between the pipes for the second straight game.
Next up is three game weekend. Friday night will be spent playing the Shelburne Red Wings in Shelburne, followed by a game in Thornhill to take on the Moose and concluding the weekend with a home game against the Bradford Bulls on Sunday, September 30th. Puck drop will be 7:30PM at BWG Leisure Centre.
