The Maine Wild only had one game this weekend, traveling to play the Northeast Generals at the Canton SportsPlex, Friday Night.
The Wild got on the board first with Daniel Erbe finding the back of the net for the Wild with an assist going to Derek Erbe. the Generals were able to tie the game up before the end of the period. with a scoreless second period, period 3 would have to decide the winner. Derek Erbe would give the Wild the lead just over halfway in the period. Generals’ Stephen Toal, would tie the game at 2 a piece. less than 2 minutes later. The Wild would once again regain the lead, this time with a goal by Kyle Sikora, assisted by Zach Gagne. A last minute empty net insurance goal would secure a 4-2 win for the Wild with the goal coming from Dean Pratt, once again assisted by Zach Gagne. Brandon Daigle gets the win in net for the Wild turning away 36 of 38 shots faced.
“We played a solid game on Friday at the Generals. It was a 60 minute effort from the entire team. I feel that the team has found its identity, and our players know their roles. As a coach, knowing that your going to get a consistent effort night in and night out allows you to put a player out in situations where they will succeed, as will the team. That seems to be where we are now. Now we have to carry this with us to Minnesota .” – Head Coach Jack Lowry
