May 13, 2015   ·   0 Comments

The Orangeville Junior B Northmen battled right to the end of Monday’s game at the Alder Street arena to take the win over the Elora Mohawks.

The game was off to a slow start but with an Orangeville 2-1 lead at the end of the first period on Northmen goals from Grayson Houghton and Malcolm Young.

The Mohawks took a brief lead in the second period after tying the game and going ahead by one, but two Northmen goals from Shane Hillis and Mike Sutton again gave Orangeville a one goal lead.

Elora matched it late in the period and set up the game for a third period show-down.

Early in the period, the Northmen scored three empty net goals – two of them short handed – when Elora went with the extra attacker in an attempt to get back in the game.

Mike Sutton scored two O-ville goals with Houghton getting the third Northmen goal in the final period.

Elora challenged and scored two at the midway mark to trail 7-6 with less than four minutes left on the clock.

O-ville’s Riley Armstong got some insurance with a late goal and a two goal lead with one and a-half minutes remaining.

The Mohawks notched a final goal with :24 seconds left in the game but that’s all they could do and the Northmen left the arena with an 8-7 win.

The Jr. B Northmen are now leading their division and the League with 16 points and an 8-1 record for the season.

The squad will be in Owen Sound on Thursday, May 14, to take on the NorthStars.

They will return to the Alder Street arena on Thursday, May 21, to host Elora.

Game time is 8:00 p.m.
