RBC Cup Day 2
So tear up the script, the Vees are 0-2 going into Monday after suffering a 3-2 defeat to the host team Humboldt Broncos. The host team would score in the first minute of the first period, until Wade Murphy would tie it up in the last minute of the period for the Vees. John Lawrence would score the only marker in the second for the Humboldt, until that man Murphy would send it into OT, five minutes before the end of the third making it 2-2. Vees hearts would be broken as Humboldt sniper, Andrew Johnston, would score for the Broncos in OT giving them a 3-2 victory. Humboldt are 2-0 and lead the table at this time.
The Vees next games is against the Woodstock Slammers on Tuesday. There is no margin of error left now for the Vees as they need to beat both Portage and Woodstock, to advance past the round robin stage.
In other action Portage would defeat the Soo Thunderbirds 4-3 on Sunday.
Grizzlies fans are no stranger to one goal defeats from the Broncos in RBC cups. The Grizzlies suffered two defeats by one goal margins in the 2009 RBC cup. This blog isn't designed to be biased,but, those two victories by Humboldt would see Victoria dominate both games and at times outplay Humboldt, but, would be the victim of steller goaltedning from then Broncos goalie Larochelle.
