Loss to Civics in last game

The Orangeville Ice Crushers are back on the ice for the 2016 / 17 GMHL season, but after three games they are still looking for their first win.

The Crushers opened the season on September 7, with a game against the Bradford Bulls at the Alder Street arena.

Orangeville’s Brett Barry scored the only Crushers goal for the night and they had to settle for a 4-1 loss in their opening game.

Returning to home ice on September 14, the Bradfod Rattlers came to town.

In a high scoring game, the visitors let loose in the first period scoring five times to take control of the game.

Tyler Majewski scored the opening Crushers goal with 22 seconds left in the first period.

After being outscored in the second frame, the Crushers returned for the final period and traded goals with the Rattles with each team scoring five to end the game 13-7.

On Thursday, September 15, the squad travelled to Alliston to take on the New Tecusmeth Civics.

The Crushers again had a slow start allowing six first period goals.

They didn’t fare any better in the second period. After scoring an early goal, the O-ville team gave up six unanswered goals.

The game ended 12-2 for the Civics when the Alliston team scored the only two markers of the third period.

The Ice Crushers will be in Seguin over the weekend (Sun., Sept. 25) to take on the Huskies.

They return to the Alder Street arena on Wednesday, September 28, to host the South Muskoka Shield.

Game time is 7:30 p.m.
