Saturday 28th September: Wild Academy Under 18s 1 – Sutton Under 18s 1 (U18s North 2)
The Wild Academy Under 18s team notched up their first ever league point with a 1-1 draw at home to Sutton U18s at Planet Ice Widnes on Saturday.
The Wild took the lead after just 90 seconds of the game with a short-handed goal by Benjamin Fox and the score remained 1 – 0 at the first period break. Sutton scored the equaliser just 1 minute into the second period and that rounded off the scoring for the game.
The visitors enjoyed more possession overall and out-shot the Wild by 34 – 17 but Widnes netminder Jake Lowndes put in a great performance to keep out all but one of them.

The Wild Academy Under 13s team are also at home on Saturday when they entertain the Blackburn Under 13s team. That game faces off at 6.15 p.m. and admission to both those games is free.
