The Warriors Came Out To Play In South Philly

The Vancouver Warriors came to play as they took it to the Philadelphia Wings 21-12 on Saturday night.

Both teams had won last week, and both franchises were looking to build momentum chasing a spot in the playoffs. Vancouver is starting to put things together down the stretch now winning 3 out of 4 games.

The Warriors could sneak into the playoffs. Meanwhile, Philly has more questions than answers. They have a short turnaround as they get ready to face the Saskatchewan Rush on Thursday.

The Warriors Offense Too Much To Handle

Vancouver brought tons of offensive pressure. Even being a man short, the Warriors still were able to unload on the back of the net, and brought it to Philly’s doorstep, putting the Wings’ defence on their heels early.

Keegan Bal would make a wide-open cut to the net for a goal midway through the first. Kyle Killen rifled one from a distance in double coverage as the Warriors had four unanswered goals to put Philly in a hole early 4-0.

The Warriors got a quick back-door powerplay goal by Ryan Martel late in the first. Riley Loewen was wide open for a goal at the end of the first. The Wings would make a goalie change. Deacan Knott would enter the game to replace Zach Higgins. The Warriors did a great job of creating space and unloading goals. Straight out of the second half, Vancouver would start quickly. The Warriors got on the scoreboard before Holden Cattoni scored for the Wings.

Vancouver would just stay on the attack as the Wings would go back and forth with Higgins and Knott in goal.

Mitch Jones Putting This Team On His Back

Mitch Jones continued his hot streak from last week, trying to put this Wings team on his back by scoring the bulk of Philly’s goals. Mitch Jones found Joe Resetarits for his 300 career goal.

Holden Cattoni was firing from all angles as he recorded his hat trick. Ben Mclntosh would also score a goal from long distance. The Wings were turning things around in the second offensively but the rest of the three quarters belonged to the Warriors.
