The Wildcats played two games this weekend. The first was Saturday against Orange County Hockey Club. Midway through the first period, Wayne Sturdevant started off the scoring for the Wildcats. Four minutes into the second period, Idyllwild’s Adam Smith scored what would be the game-winning goal. With 5:40 to go in the first period, OC scored their lone goal. Thirty-five seconds into the third period, Tiffany Anderson scored, and then Kaleb Boctor scored with one minute to go, for a final score of 4-1 Wildcats.
On Sunday, the Wildcats played in Ontario against the Wave. Three minutes into the first period, the Wave scored on an outnumbered attack. They then scored a second goal only two minutes later. Six minutes into the second period, Caleb Loera scored for the Wildcats. With 4:30 to go in the second period, the Wave scored, then scored again 2 minutes later. The teams played even in the third period, so the Wildcats fell to the Wave 4-1.
