Some of the photos from the last Adelaide Summer League Junior Div2 games played on 28/03/2021. Pirates and Destroyers met first up. My apologies with the accuracy of the reporting as the score sheets were difficult to read. Well, here goes… With 1:35 left in the period Pirates Poppy Kelly got one past Destroyers goaltender Brodie after an assist from Mickey Nottle.
In the second period Destroyers would open the scoring first with Luka Loria finding the back of the net after an assist from Max Marquardt. Pirates Hudson Elze scored a goal a few minutes unassisted, but the Destroyers would add another to their goal tally late in the period, only to see Elze add another unanswered goal.
The coach’s 2nd period long break speech had the desired effect and with the Pirates facing a penalty were unable to clear their zone and the Destroyers were able to score with the player advantage through Ilya Truuse after an assist from Loria. This gave the Destroyers the momentum, and from this they added two more with the first Truuse unassisted, to have 6 goals on the board. Pirates Nottle would score a consolation goal with less than a minute to go to put some respectability into the score line. Shots on goal for the game were Pirates Riley Kanpp facing 18 shots, and Destroyers Brodie 19. Final score Destroyers 6, Pirates 4.
