WBL/Stillwater

Post by inthetwine » Sun Feb 21, 2016 4:54 am

This probably won't happen, But I would not be overly shocked to see another upset Tuesday.

You really think WBL can make it 2 upsets in a row?

Not gonna happen this year. Talent gap between the two teams is much wider this season so WBL margin is much, much slimmer.

WBL played them to a tie the first game, actually outshot Stillwater, and were in the second game until middle of the 3rd, we will see.

WBL has a fighters chance. I expect Stillwater to pull away but it wouldn't surprise me to see the Bears have a lead going into the 3rd. A bounce here and there and they could pull it off. The Bears looked pretty good Saturday, and Stillwater gave up something like 4 goals on 10 shots against Irondale. I know they let off the gas after period 2, but that game shouldn't instill any confidence in the Ponies faithful.

Hardly an upset, WB should have been seeded higher than Roseville, and It was clear Tartan should not have been seeded 3.

It would be great to see a WBL,Hill final again, However Hill may have their hands full with Woodbury.

You are certainly correct and hard to argue with your logic. I just think WBL caught SW in the first game with some tactical things that caught them off guard so credit to them. From that point the teams went opposite directions and as a coach sometimes it's easier to get the boys attention when you have a game where maybe you don't play as clean as you'd like, which looked like may be the case vs. Irondale? I expect SW to play very well and not leave any doubt in this one, but as you say - we will see...

Truly, irony is a lost art.

A person would think Stillwater without question, but their two games this season makes one stop and think....

I am thinking Stillwater pulls away in the third.
5-2 again.

White Bear had a really rough four minute stretch in the middle of the second period but other than that it was fairly even.

The Bears just had no offensive firepower this year and it killed them again tonight.
