Vets take a loss to Wilmot




The Shelburne Junior C Vets made a good second period comeback in Friday (June 26) night's game against the Wilmot Wild, but the third period saw the visitors rally to take the game 10–8 after a couple of late game goals sealed the deal.
The Vets were trailing 4–2 at the end of the first.
First period Shelburne goals came from Doug Derbyshire and Matt Allen.
The Vets returned for the second frame and opened fire with three goals from Ty McCallum, Darren Mick on a shorthanded effort and a third goal from Kayden Morley to take a 5–4 lead.
Wilmot tied things up at the midway mark.
The second period ended with a 6–6 tie with one more Vets goal from Nick Fines and single from Wilmot to make it a one period battle to end the game in the third.
Shelburne's Zack LaForm scored at .22 seconds into the period followed by a second Vets goal from Matt Allen at .42 seconds to give the hometown guys a two goal lead.
The game was lost when the Wild managed to score four third period goals to take the lead and held on for the rest of the game for the win.
“We needed to tighten our defence, which we did, and we just started running to the net and scoring goals,” said Shelburne's Darren Mick of the first period come-back.
The return for the third period was a disappointment when the Vets were out-gunned by the Wild, but Mick said he thinks the squad still played a good game.
“We pulled ahead right off the bat (in the third). We did pretty good but right near the end we lost a bit of gas,” he said. “We brought a good game. We had good intensity. Near the end we lost a bit, but if we bring that to the next few games we'll take it for sure.”
After the weekend the Vets have a 5–9–1 record and 11 points.
The Vets will return for their final home game of the regular season this Friday (July 3) to host the Fergus Thistles at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex. The game is scheduled to get underway at 8 p.m.
