100 Mile House Bantam Wranglers win back-to-back

They beat the Thompson Cariboo Warriors and the Williams Lake Yellow Warriors

The 100 Mile Bantam Rec Wranglers (sponsored by Forest Grove Legion) hosted the Thompson Cariboo Warriors for a league game on Nov. 24 at the South Cariboo Rec Centre.

The game started out fairly even, with the Warriors getting the first goal but it was disallowed due to a high stick. The home team battled back and a few minutes later, Cameron Scott got the first goal with assists from Elias Moore and Kylee Ilnicki.

Despite several shots on the Warriors goalie, the next goal was scored by Julian Zucchelli near the end of the period. Fifteen seconds into the second period, an impressive wrap-around goal by Moore secured a 3-0 lead over the Warriors.

The Warriors struggled in the third period but managed to get in one goal past the Wranglers relief goalie, Joey Isaac, but two minutes later, Moore was able to squeak another goal in past their goalie.

With less than two minutes left in the game, the Warriors had one player in the penalty box, pulled their goalie and managed one more goal for their team. The final score was 4-2 for the Bantam Rec Wranglers.

Sunday morning had the Bantams heading to an exhibition game hosted by the Williams Lake Yellow Warriors.

Despite being down by two players, 100 Mile came out strong with Scott once again getting the first goal of the game with an assist from Jade Paul. Two minutes later, Paul made a great shot with an assist from Corey Harding.

Williams Lake was able to squeak in a few goals, but by the end of the first period, Mason Pincott and Ilnicki with an assist from Martin Stillas added two more to the scoreboard.

The second period, the teams looked very even as the puck went back and forth in each end. Mat Wilden had a sweet goal with help from Scott and Paul, then Pincott added to the lead with an assist from Harding.

Heading into the last period, 100 Mile was up by two goals, even though the short bench was taking its toll on the players, Moore got a sneaky goal through the pads of the Yellow Warriors goalie.

Williams Lake managed to get in two more goals but the Wranglers, never giving up, had Ilnicki shoot the puck into the net after a great pass from Scott. Less than three minutes left in the game, Pincott scored with an assist from Paul giving him a hat-trick.

The final score of the game was 9-6 for the Bantam Rec Wranglers.

Next league games are Dec. 1 at 2:15 p.m. and Dec. 2 at 11:15 a.m. when the team hosts Lillooet at the South Cariboo Rec Centre.
