May 19, 2016   ·   0 Comments

The Orangeville Junior B Northmen extended their record to 8-1 on Monday (May 16) night and are now leading both the division and the League with 16 in the points column.

Monday’s game against the Guelph Regals saw the Northmen off to a slow start when they failed to score in the first period and allowed two Guelph goals.

They turned that around in the second frame when they tied the game on goals from Scott Dominey and Shane Hillis.

After Guelph went ahead on goal number three, the Northmen hit back notching two more to take the lead going into the final period.

Second period Orangeville goals came from Hillis and Grayson Houghton.

It was the third period where the Northmen really took command of the game and shut down down the Guelph offence.

Houghton got the first two – both on powerplays – followed by a final Northmen goal from Mike Sutton to end the game at 7-3.

Orangeville goalie Rylan Hartley took 34 shots on goal for the night and allowed nothing between the pipes in the third period.

The win pushed the Northmen to the top of the heap in League standings.

In the Mid West Division the Northmen are eight points ahead of the second place Regals.

As of Monday night, the Halton Hills Bulldogs of the South East division were in second place over all with 15 points followed by the Akwsasne Indians of the Far East division in third place with 14 points.

The Northmen will be back in action this coming Saturday (May 21) night when they host the Point Edward Pacers at the Alder Street arena.

Game time is 4:00 p.m.
