Mississauga Reps Review
The Reps are a team with a lot of potential. Moreover, they have the quality to beat every team in the league.
The started this game strongly, but their opponents were also ready for a fight. Therefore, most of the first period passed in both team trying to impose their tempo. Yet, there was no breakthrough during the first 15 minutes.

In the 2nd period of the game, the Reps took a more aggressive approach and opened the score in the 3rd minute.

Toronto Young Nationals ReviewNationals
The Nationals played well in the first period of the game. Moreover, they looked strong in their tackles and their top line played well. However, they were not able to open the score due to the fact that their opponents played well too.

Pridnall and Caldiero were the two notable players but they were not able to break the deadlock.

In the 2nd period of the game, the Nationals dropped their pace. Moreover, their opponents stepped up their game and the Nationals conceded 3 goals in the 2nd period. They were not at their best and they deserved to be behind.

In the final period of the game, the Nationals conceded 2 more goals and that sealed their fate in this game.
It is important to emphasize that the Nationals tried to get back into the game. They took more risks going forward and they were caught on the break twice. Their efforts were futile in the end.

Final Thoughts
The Reps are a quality team. They were patient in the first period of the game. And bombarded the Nationals during the 2nd period of the game. They showed their quality in the 2nd period. And that was enough for another routine win for the Mississauga side in this game.
