Pythons Secure Bidois Cup

By News

The Pythons came out on top against the Hornets in the first round of the AIHA Cup Series, a monthly tournament held during the regular Junior season.

The Pythons beat the Hornets 8-6 on May 29th to claim the Bidois Cup in what was a close game right to the very end. 

With the game tied up at the end of Period 2, both teams would have to dig deep to secure the win in Period 3. 

A goal to the Pythons in the first 4 minutes of Period 3 gave them a 6-5 lead, and this was quickly added to just 59 seconds later to make the score 7-5 in favour of the Pythons. 

The score remained the same until just 88 seconds to the final buzzer when the Hornets found an opening and brought it back to a one goal game, 7-6 to the Pythons.

With just 19 seconds to go the Pythons struck again, extending their lead in the final moments of the game to end up winning 8-6.
