Jr A Flyers net two points with home game win

January 7, 2015   ·   0 Comments

It was a rare low scoring weekend for the Orangeville Jr A Flyers – not just for the O-ville squad but their opponents as well.

The Flyers won their Saturday night home game against the Lindsay Muskies but it took an overtime period to do it.

The game ended 2-1 for the Flyers after three periods that saw both teams scoring only one goal each and a second period that had no scoring at all.

Lindsay lit up the scoreboard late in the first period.

The Flyers tied it up at 4:46 into the third period on a goal from James McLaughlin.

Neither team could break the tie by the end of the third frame and they returned for overtime.

O-ville’s Derek Topatigh got the winner when the Flyers went on a powerplay after Lindsay was called on hooking penalty.

The Flyers played their second game of the weekend on the road in Georgetown against the West Division’s first place Raiders.

Georgetown notched a single late in the first period.

After a scoreless second frame, the teams returned for a final 20 minute battle, with the Georgetown squad getting the edge early in the period with a goal at the 2:42 mark, and a third with just over two minutes left on the clock to leave the ice with a 3-0 win.

After the weekend the Flyers are still in second place in the West Division with 41 points and a 19-19-1 record including two overtime losses.

They are in the number 12 spot over all in the 22 team Ontario Junior Hockey League.

The Aurora Tigers continue to lead the League with 59 points and a 28-9 record so far.

The Flyer will be in Lindsay on Friday, January 9.

They will have two home games this coming weekend.

On Saturday, January 10, they will host the Oakville Blades at the Alder Street arena. That game is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

They return to home ice the following night, Sunday, January 11, when they will take on the Cobourg Cougars.

The puck drop is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
