Shut-out by Oakville

The Orangeville Junior A Flyers couldn’t get a break Saturday (Oct. 15) night when they hosted the Oakville Blades at the Alder Street arena.

The Flyers came up short in the first period when the Oakville squad notched three unanswered goals in under four minutes late in the period

Oakville widened the lead to 4-0 in the second period on a single goal that left the Flyers under pressure to get back in the game.

The night ended in a shut-out when the Blades scored two more in the final period of play – one at the 3:08 mark, and the final goal with just over five minutes left on the clock.

On a positive note, the Flyer spend 12 minutes in the penalty box on minors and took a ten minute misconduct, but didn’t allow any powerplay goals for the night.

The loss, however, leaves the Flyers in the basement of the West Division of the Ontario Junior Hockey League with a 3-10 record and six points after 13 games.

Georgetown is leading the division with a healthy 13-2 record.

They are followed by Burlington in second place with an 8-4 record and Buffalo in third place with 15 points and a 3-9 record.

Georgetown is currently leading the League over all with 26 points – one point ahead of Whitby.

The Flyers will be back on home ice this Saturday, October 22, to host the Toronto Jr. Canadiens at the Alder Street arena.

Game time is7:30 p.m.
