Ice Dogs Fall to the Thunder
Saturday, April 29, 2017 - Submitted by Juno Tsalis

The Sydney Ice Dogs faced the Perth Thunder on Saturday in a hard fought game at Macquarie Ice Rink.

Sydney had a strong physical presence entering into the game. The Dogs opened the scoring with 10:08 left to play in the first with a goal from newly acquired Billy Cliff. The goal saw the home team leading 1-0 at the end of the first.

The Thunder tied the game early in the second when Jordan Kyros found the back of the net. With 12:24 left on the clock captain Scott Stephenson was called for high sticking, sending the Dogs to the penalty kill. The team was successfully able to kill the penalty and came close to regaining the lead with 9:30 left of the clock but the puck hit the crossbar.
With 8:50 left to play in the period Dave Dunwoodie was sent to the box for tripping sending the Dogs to the penalty kill for the second time in the night. The Thunder took the lead on the power play at 8:23 with a goal from Daniel Göransson. Perth was able to make the game 3-1 at 6:05 when Jessyko Bernard scored.
With just over two minutes left, Liam Jeffries was assessed a minor for roughing, giving the Dogs their first power play opportunity of the night. Although creating many chances, the team was unable to capitalise on the opportunity.

Sydney entered the third trailing 3-1. Dave Upton was sent to the box for boarding at 19:24 but 4 on 4 hockey soon ensued for 40 seconds when Perth’s Daniel Göransson was assessed a minor for charging.

Kieren Webster was able to give the Thunder a 4-1 lead with 11:28 to play in the game. The Dogs were awarded another power play when Robbie Bird was sent to the box for roughing at 10:46. Sydney then had a 2-man advantage for 21 seconds at 9:06 when Benjamin Breault was assessed a game misconduct and a five minute major for a hit of Dogs Dan Pataky. The Dogs fought hard but were unable to score on the power play. Sydney headed to the penalty kill for the final time when Dave Dunwoodie was called for hooking at 3:41.

Despite the loss, the team played hard and were without key players including forward Ellesse Carini and defensemen Tomas Manco and Andrew White.
The Dogs are back at it in Adelaide next weekend, facing the Adrenaline in back to back games. Sydney next plays at home on May 13th against the Adrenaline.
