MID SEASON STUGGLES CONTINUE

Bradford, Ontario
November 16, 2013

The Bradford Bulls dropped a pair of important games this weekend. The Bulls hosted the Huskies on Wednesday, losing 4-1 before traveling to Temiscaming to play the Titans yesterday (Nov. 15) and dropping that one 9-4 final. The Bulls have dropped to third place, from first, and now trail the South Muskoka Shield and Seguin Huskies.

Bradford has gone 3-4-0 in their last seven after amassing a 14 game win streak to open the season.

The Bulls rival Seguin Huskies came to Bradford with first place on the line. The Bulls brought in a pair of new recruits in preparation for the match; local Nick Arcan was signed and Aleksejs Dokutovich was flown in from Latvia, touching down just in time for the match.   Arcan scored the only goal for Bradford in the 4-1 loss with a power play marker in the second period. Shots were 45-40 for Seguin.

Yesterday in Temiscaming, the Bulls did not fare much better.  Dalton Anderson had three points (1g, 2a) but it was not enough as Bradford fell 9-4 final. Arcan followed his debut with another strong game notching two assists. Other scorers for the Bulls included: Shchenkov, Pellinen and Sury.

The Bulls will look to break this mid-season slump with a home game this week. Another tough match is upcoming as the Toronto Blue Ice Jets (16-4-1) will be in Bradford on Wednesday, November 20th with a 8:00pm puck drop.
