Toronto Marlboros Review
The Marborols are one of the best teams in the league this season. Moreover, they suffered only defeat so far which came in the game against the Senators.
They had a great start of this game as they opened the score in the 2nd minute of the game after a swift counter-attack. A minute later, their talisman captain Barlow doubled their lead with a well-placed shot.
The defensive line of the M’boros was also playing well and was led by Stephen.
In the 2nd period of the game, the Toronto side dominated the middle of the ice. Also, they controlled the puck well and they were better on the power play. Yet, the Marbolos were not able to score the 3rd goal in the game. Their defensive line was strong and did not let any significant chances for their opponents. Dell’ Elce managed to keep the Rebels’ forward line at bay.
In the final period of the game, the Marlboros dominated once again. They were the better team and scored the 3rd goal. It was Dell’ Elce that placed the puck in Rebels’ net with a well-placed shot from long distance.
In the final minutes of the game, the Marlboros conceded a goal after a period of dominance of the Rebels. Therefore, the Toronto side won 3-1.
The Rebels hoped that they will get back to winning ways after suffering a bad defeat in the game against the Majors. However, that was not the case as they were under constant pressure from the 1st minute of the game. Therefore, they conceded two goals in three minutes. On a positive note, they had the in-form Kwok and he was making some dangerous runs during the first period.
In the 2nd period of the game, the Rebels managed so solidify their game on the blue line. And although that was positive, the offensive game was still not up to the task. Therefore, they were not able to mount significant pressure on the Marlboros. The status quo remained at the end of the 2nd period of the game.
In the final period of the game, the Rebels continued with ther attempts to get back into the game. However, they conceded a goal in the 4th minute. And that was a big blow for them in this game. Their attempts continued but they were only able to score one goal for a final result of 3-1.
This was a routine win for the Marlboros. They did not play as they usually do. However, they did enough to secure another comfortable win for them. As for the Rebels, it is important to emphasize that they tried their best. But it seems that the hard defeat from the Majors was still present in the heads of the players.
