COACH'S BLOG: Barons Go 1-2 During Exhibition Weekend
2012 August 28th
The Oil Barons started the exhibition schedule this past weekend going 1-2 in their first 3 games. The team was very tentative Friday losing 5-2 in Sherwood Park. Jessey Touchette and Parker Evans-Campbell scored in what can only be described as a very sloppy game.
The Barons bounced back with a 3-2 overtime victory in Lloydminster but once again the game was a less than stellar effort on behalf of the MOB. Goal scorers were Brock Maschmeyer, Luc Lalor and Jessey Touchette with the winner.
The Barons dropped a 2-1 decision in Bonnyville Sunday in what was probably the best game of the weekend. Mike Marianchuk scored the lone goal on a power play in the 1st period.
The team is now down to 29 players - 2 Goalies, 11 Defence and 16 Forwards heading into Okotoks Thursday Aug 30th for another 3 game swing.
