O-ville team stops Toronto attack for three periods

Orangeville Junior A Flyers goalie Ruan Badenhorst got his first shut-out of the season on Sunday (Oct. 30) afternoon when the O-ville squad hosted the Toronto Patriots at the Alder Street arena and left the ice with a 5-0 win.

After taking losses in their last three games the Flyers looked ready to turn it around.

The last Orangeville win was against the Patriots back on October 11, when they squeezed out a 5-4 game after coming out hard in the third period and outscored the Toronto team 4-3 in the final frame for the win.

Sunday’s game had the Flyers in the lead midway in the first period when Nick Stuckless scored on a powerplay 10:02 into the period.

The Flyers played a level headed second period and went ahead 2-0 when Conor Smart scored early on an assist from Stuckless.

Zack Lyons gave the squad a 3-0 lead late in the frame after taking the feed from Zack Lyons.

Retuning for the final period the O-ville squad left the ice with the shut-out after keeping the Toronto attack contained and some good goaltending by Badenhorst.

Conor Smart scored at the 9:09 mark in the period followed by a late goal from Lyons with just 16 seconds left on the clock.

It was a much needed win for the Flyers who have struggle in the early going and now have a 4-12 record for the season and a fourth place in the West Division of the OJHL.

Georgetown is leading the division with a 16-2-1 record and 33 points.

They are following by Burlington with 23 points and Buffalo who have 19 points after winning nine games and tying one.

The Flyers will be in Milton on Friday (Nov. 4) night.

They return to the Alder Street arena the following night, Saturday, November 5, to host the Lindsay Muskies.

Game time is 7:00 p.m.
