The Orangeville Ice Crushers took a 4-2 loss in Wednesday (Sept. 30) night’s game against the Alliston Coyotes after giving up a 2-1 lead in the third period.

The Crushers were off to a good start when Nicholas Shuman opened the scoring with a powerplay goal in the first period.

It was a tie game midway in the second when the Alliston squad scored to even it up.

Orangeville’s Darian Harris got the go ahead goal at the 16:40 mark in the frame to give the Crushers a one goal lead heading into the final 20 min- utes.

From there it was bad news for the Crushers when Alliston tied it up early in the period. The Coyotes went ahead on a powerplay effort at the eight minute mark to put all the pres- sure back on the Crushers to get back in the game.

The Coyotes took the win after scoring a final one on an empty net when the O-ville squad put six attackers on the ice.
The loss leaves the Crushers at .500 for the season with a 3-3 record.

The Coyotes are leading the Central Division of the Greater Metro Hockey League going undefeated after five games.

The Crushers will return to home ice at the Alder Street arena on Wednesday, October 14, to host the Grey Highlands Braveheart.

Game time is 7:30 p.m.
