The Orangeville Junior A Northmen suffered a pair of losses over the weekend and are now on the negative side with a 5-6 record for the season.

The squad hosted the Six Nations Arrows on Friday (June 9) night at Tony Rose arena and found themselves trailing 4-1 after the first period.

Dylan Watson scored the only Orangeville goal in the first.

The second period was tied with each team scoring a single to make it a 5-2 game with one period remaining.

The final frame turned into a disappointment for the Northmen when they failed to score and gave up five goals to end the game with a 10-2 loss.

On Sunday, June 11, the Northmen traveled to Kitchener-Waterloo to take on the Braves.

The game was off to a slow start with Mac O’Keefe scoring the only goal in the first period.

Travis Brown and Scott DelZotto followed up with two second period goals that gave the O-ville team a 3-0 lead halfway through the period.

Kitchener-Waterloo notched two early goals to close the gap.

Orangeville’s Jordan McKenna scored to make it a 5-3 game with more than half the period remaining.

Kitchener-Waterloo’s Dawson McKenzie stepped up scoring at 9:35 then again at 13:47 to tie the game and force an overtime period.

The Braves took the game with a 5-6 win in overtime.
