Saints 18U Continue Slide against #14 Pittsburgh Hornets

In game two of the weekend, the Saints ran into the Pittsburgh Hornets, the #14 ranked team in the United States.  The Hornets took control of the scoreboard jumping out to a 2-0 lead, but a Wilson Vershay power play goal cut the lead in half.  The Hornets scored again to make it 3-1, but the Saints continued to pressure the Hornets goaltender.  Everyone in the rink thought the lead was cut to one, but the Hornets goaltender stole one, and in typical hockey fashion, the puck moved to the other end of the rink and in the back of the net to give the Hornets a 4-1 lead.  The Saints continued to pressure, but the Hornets took advantage of mistakes to extend their lead and finish the scoring at 6-1.  Peter Dudek finished the game with 28 saves.

The Saints look to rebound this afternoon against Ontario Hockey Academy.
