Clippers Dash Red Devils Hopes With Late Comeback

Wallaceburg-Red-Devils-Logo-1The Wallaceburg faithful rallied behind their hometown Red Devils, hoping to watch their first round series against the Windsor Clippers come to a close Saturday on home soil.

Unfortunately for the Wallaceburg Red Devils, it was the Clippers who rallied, coming back from a 10-8 deficit heading into the third period to win 13-11, and knot the opening round Ontario Junior B Lacrosse playoff series at 2-2.

Now, the teams will prepare for a fifth and deciding game Tuesday, July 8 in Windsor.

Saturday, the Red Devils got solid performances yet again from late season acquisitions Connor Smith, Kevin Conroy, and Dan Charlton, as well as hometown product Mike Myers, who is the Red Devils’ leading playoff scorer.

Myers had five points including the opening goal of the game in the loss.

Smith had two goals and an assist, while Charlton had two goals and two assists, and Conroy had a goal and three assists. Other Wallaceburg scorers included Parker Gilhuly, Mitch Burton, and Mitch Gagnier.

    Absolutely inexplicable decision on the starting goaltender contributed hugely to this loss. Was at the game and knew from past results what was going to happen before the game started. Started out okay but when things started going south anyone who has watched this team regularly knew what was coming and the coach still refused to make a change. You can lay this loss right at his feet.

    The team has also not won a game since the team captain decided to quit the team to go Junior A ….

    To be fair to the former team captain, the players always knew that it was his hope and intention to finish his season with the Arrows. He is a class guy and didn’t “screw” his team. He is in his last year of Jr. Eligibility and has a real chance to win an Ontario and Canadian Jr. A championship. How can anyone possibly expect him to give up that opportunity? If it were my son, I would hope he would do the same.
