Academy U13s Just Lose Out After Great Fightback
The Widnes Wild Junior Academy Under 13 team put in a battling and highly entertaining performance against their Deeside counterparts before eventually losing 5-7 at Planet Ice Widnes on Sunday.
The Wild team actually scored first after just 56 seconds of the game but were pegged back and were losing 1-3 by the time they scored their second goal on 8 minutes.
It was 2-5 at the end of the first period but a terrific fightback saw them score 3 unanswered goals to level the score on 33 minutes at 5-5 but two late goals for Deeside handed the points to the visitors.
The Wild U13s are away to Deeside this Saturday 2nd March – 4.45pm face off – and then at home on Saturday 9th March when they take on Nottingham U13s at Planet Ice Widnes. That game starts at 6.50pm and admission is free.
