Loss at home and on the road

The Orangeville Ice Crushers had a tough week after losing both scheduled games.

On Wednesday, October the Crushers hosted the Grey Highlands Bravehearts at the Alder Street arena in Orangeville.

After a scoreless first period, Grey Highlands returned and scored four fast ones in the second frame.

The Crushers got on the scoreboard on a goal from Jacob Guibord.

Trailing 5-1, the Orangeville team closed the gap with three late period goals to make it a 5-4 game with one period left to play.

After tying it up in the third, the Crushers lost it late in the game when Grey Highlands scored twice to end it a 7-5.

The Crushers travelled to Tottenham on Saturday (Oct. 17) night to take on the Steam a the Tottenham Community Centre arena.

The Orangeville team got an early lead on a goal from Darian Harris midway in the first period then went ahead by two on a marker from Brad Ferrell early in the second.

From there they saw the lead evaporate when the Steam scored five second period goals before Orangeville could respond.

Mato Zovko scored for O-ville late in the but period but another Tottenham goal left the Crushers trailing 6-3 going into the final 20 minutes.

Both teams scored in the final period to end the game with a 7-4 Tottenham win.

The loss drops the Crushers to the negative side in the standings with a 4-5 record after eight games and an seventh place in the 11 team Central Division of the Greater Metro Hockey League.

The Crushers were scheduled to host Oshawa last night (Oct. 21).

They will return to home ice at the Alder Street arena on Wednesday, Oct 28, to host the Bradford Rattlers.

Game time is 7:30 p.m.
