Bears come back from two goal deficit

December 10, 2014   ·   0 Comments

The Orangeville District Secondary School Bears hockey team found themselves battling out of a hole during Monday’s (Dec. 8) game against John F. Ross CVI from Guelph when Ross scored two fast goals to take an early lead in the first period.

The early deficit shook up the Bears who are fighting for the top spot in the standings in an undefeated season and they had trouble getting back into the game for the rest of the frame.

That all turned around when they took a break after the first period and re-grouped for a second period that turned the game around.

Bears forward Trevor Nevidomskis got the OD opener when he took a shot from the point that went through the crowd in front of the crease and hit the back of the Ross net.

The Bears tied it up with a scramble in front the Guelph goal when Ben Mercey knocked in a rebound to make it a 2-2 game.

Late in the period, Kyle Waters took the feed across the front of the goal and beat the Ross goalie who was caught out of position to make it 3-2 going into the final period of play.

When the teams returned for the third period, the Bears took control and kept most of the play in the Ross end and kept up the pressure for the full duration.

Zack Banks got OD’s goal number four midway through the period and the Bears left with a 4-2 win.

“Sometime we don’t do the little things it takes. We had a wake-up call during the first period. We got two quick ones and were right back into it,” Said coach Justin Davis. “I think we were frustrated a little bit with how the guys came out to start the game, but you can’t complain when you win.”

That win gave the Bears a 5-0 record for the season.

They took It up a notch the following day when they travelled to Guelph to take on Guelph Collegiate Vocational Institute on

Tuesday, December 9.

The Bears left with a 6-3 win and two more points.

They are now tied for first place with Centre Wellington District High school who are also undefeated after six games.

Norwell District Secondary School is also undefeated with five games behind them, so it’s looking like a very tight

battle once the teams move into the playoffs in February.

The Bears will be back on home ice at Tony Rose arena on Tuesday, December 16, to host Norwell District Secondary School.

The puck drop is scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
