September 24, 2014   ·   0 Comments

The Orangeville Flyers nudged closer to the plus side with a 6-2 win over St. Michaels on Saturday, September 20, on home ice at the Alder Street arena in Orangeville.

It was a much needed win for the Flyers who dropped their September 11, game to Kingston with a 5-2 loss.

Saturday’s outing puts the squad back at .500 for the season even though it’s only four games in.

The squad looked pretty slick on Saturday going up against a team who has been very strong over the past few seasons.

St. Michaels opened the scoring at just under three minutes into the game, but the O-ville response on a powerplay effort evened it up on a goal from Lucas Smilsky.

The second period made all the difference when the Flyers scored three unanswered goals including a short handed effort by Darren Nesbitt with less than two minutes remaining in the frame.

Two other goals came from Shawn Topatigh and Connor Stack.

The visitors managed to close the gap with an early goal at 3:09 into the final 20 minutes.

Smilsky notched his second of the game early in the period to make it a 5-2 game with 15 minutes left on the clock.

The final goal came when the Flyers were short handed and St. Michaels put six attackers on the ice in an effort to capitalize on the final man advantage, but Colin Rigney got hold of the puck and placed it into the St. Michaels net to end the game at 6-2.

The Flyers will take part in the OJHL Showcase in Oakville on September 26 – 28.

They will be in Burlington on Friday, October 3, for a road game.

The Flyers return to home ice at the Alder Street arena on Saturday, October 11, to host the Hamilton Red Wings at the Alder Street arena.
