Novice Stars Meet Hot Rockets
Submitted By Brent Kidder on Tuesday, October 2, 2012
On Monday night at the Gemini Sportsplex in Strathroy the Novice team ran into a solid Strathroy squad.  The team battled hard in the match but came out on the losing end of an 8-2 score.

The Stars came to play but still found themselves down 2 goals inside of the first 2 minutes against an offensive minded Rocket team.  The Rockets repeatedly cruised the neutral zone looking for some fast breaks and were able to turn the strategy in to too many clean breakaways.

Liam Kidder and Nolan Tales battled a puck out of their own end just past the 3 minute mark with Kidder speeding up the ice and burying a hard shot to get the Stars on the board.

The team managed to create some good pressure in the offensive zone throughout the game but didn't manage to capitalize on many opportunities.  They cleared the puck well from their own end well but the breakaways were the deciding factor.  

Braylen Dowson managed to score a goal with his chest off of an Aiden Holder rebound in the final 2 minutes.

The Stars have 2 games on the coming weekend with another road trip to Mount Brydges on Saturday and then hosting the Dorchester Dragons at home on Sunday.
