Unofficial Recap: Bighorns vs. Wild Sept 29, 2023

The game last night was electrifying, both teams showing their strengths and weaknesses. Period 1 was played pretty tight by both teams, with almost equal shots on goal, but by the time Period 2 started, the teams showed their true colors. By the end of the game, the Wilds had scored only 1 goal out of their 24 shots on our goalie but racked up 43 penalty minutes. Bighorns won with 5 goals and showed their training with a whopping 64 shots on the Wild's goal and their discipline with a very reasonable 12 penalty minutes.
