The Yarmouth Mariners defeated the Valley Wildcats 5-4 before the hometown crowd during the Mariners pre-season debut on Tuesday evening, Sept. 2.

Yarmouth jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period but two Valley goals in quick succession in the second period – 27 seconds apart  – in the second period evened the score. The two teams were deadlocked 3-3 at the end of the second period.

The Mariners stretched the lead out to 5-3 in the third period, with Valley scoring with 12.1 seconds left to close the gap to one goal. Not enough to take the lead, though, with the Mariners winning.

Yarmouth major midget player Colby Muise, the Mariners 2014 territorial pick, started in net, giving up two goals in the second. Jared Lavine was played for second half of the game and gave up two goals, one in the second and one in the third. The Valley Wildcats had a total of 29 shots on net with Yarmouth having 28 shots on net.

This was also Jim Bottomley’s debut as head coach on the bench with the Mariners. Attendance at the Mariners Centre was 823.
