One loss, one win on the road

The Orangeville Ice Crushers gained a couple of points but then took a loss in Greater Metro Hockey League action over the week.

The Crushers didn’t have their regular home game last week. Instead they travelled to Bradford to take on the Bulls on Wednesday, November 4, and left with a 5-4 win in a game that went into overtime to decide who would come out on top.

It was tight game with all three periods ending in a tie.

The Crushers opened the scoring at 13:40 in the first period on a goal from Ben Wardman.

The Bulls matched less than a minute later to end the period tied at one.

Returning for the second frame the teams again battled to a tie trading goals through the period one for one.

Orangeville’s Joseph Alexander got both of the Ice Crushers second period goals.

The third period turned into an epic bat- tle when again the teams matched goals with Orangeville’s Darian Harris tying the game with two minutes left on the clock to force an overtime period when neither team could bury the puck to break the tie. The Ice Crushers took the win when Hunter Sawick scored at 18:11 into the overtime period.

The Crushers continued on the road for the weekend travelling to Tottenham on Saturday (Nov. 7) night to face the undefeated Steam.

This time they just couldn’t score de- spite have some good opportunities and playing a good game.

The score at the end of the first period had the Crushers trailing 2-1 when Darian Harris scored the only Orangeville goal of the night.

After scoring a single in the second period, the Steam finished off the game in the final period notching three more to end the game 6-1.

After the weekend the Ice Crushers are in the number seven spot in the Central Division of the GMHL with 12 points and a 6-9 record.

The Ice Crushers will be in Feversham on Sunday, November 15, to take on the Grey County Grizzlies.

They return to home ice at the Alder Street arena in Orangeville on Wednesday, November 18, to host the Seguin Huskies.

The puck drop for that game time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
