U15 Mavs Pound the Hounds with Strong Showing

September 29, 2018

After the previous week’s loss at home to the Milton Keynes Storm, the Under 15 Invicta Mavericks were looking to bounce back with a strong performance against the Under 15 Haringey Hounds on Saturday 29th September at Planet Ice Gillingham.

 

Invicta Netminder #31 Harvey Bryden passed a late fitness test to take his place in the Mavericks crease and #11 Christy Clark made her Invicta debut.

 1st Period – Invicta took an early lead when #15 Olly Wagg combined with #22 Ava Dell to fire a sharp shot past the Hounds’ goalie on the very first shift of the game on 0:35. Wagg then doubled the Invicta lead on 4:08 after some persistent work along the boards from #72 Will Williams to put the Mavericks in control.  On 10:57 #6 Brandon Chard opened his account, receiving a nice pass from #95 Thomas Davies to confidently put the puck in the back of the Haringey net.  Wagg competed his first period hattrick on 14:24 with an unassisted goal as he skated strongly through the Haringey defence before finishing confidently.  A professional 15 minutes of hockey from the Mavericks who lead 4-0 at the period break.

 

2nd Period – The Mavericks were looking to build on their lead in the second period and managed to do just that on 16:18 with a powerplay goal from #46 Matty Bell who scored from close in, assisted by Wagg and #54 Taylor Chard.  The Hounds’ frustration with the score line was becoming increasingly evident, with the match officials calling a series of minor penalties against both teams.  With his brother in the penalty box for elbows, B Chard set up Wagg to register a short-handed goal on 20:49 to make the score 6-0 on 20:49.  Bell and Wagg then combined brilliantly with some nice one-touch passing to set up #10 Harrison Prentice in front who was denied his first Mav’s goal by a fine save from the Haringey goalie.  It was only a temporary denial though, as Prentice made no mistake seconds later, collecting a pass from Bell to rifle in his first Under 15 goal to round off the period’s scoring and leave the hosts leading 7-0 the end of the middle period.

 

3rd Period – Any thoughts of an Invicta shut-out were dashed early in the third frame when the impressive Hounds #21 collected a pass from the Haringey goalie to skate clear of the Mavs’ defence and beat the exposed Bryden on 33:52.  With Invicta’s attack starting to fire blanks, Haringey doubled their tally on 37:22 to make the score 7-2 to the hosts.  The remainder of the period saw a mixture of harsh and fair minor penalties against both teams disrupt the flow of the game.  Invicta confidently killed off a 5 on 3 advantage for the visitors but could not register any more goals as the game petered to a close.

 

FINAL: Invicta Mavericks 7 – 2 Haringey Hounds

A solid performance from the Mavericks who record back to back victories against Haringey.

 

Man of the Match:  #15 Olly Wagg

Spirit of the Game: #21 Calum Evans

 

The Mavericks travel to Solent on Sunday 14th October to play the Under 15 Junior Devils for the first time this season (Face Off: 4:30)
