Mooretown Flags Moving On Up With Win Over Wheatley
December 1,  2012

Travis Mullen assisted on 3 goals

The Flags are slowly moving up as they are now tied with Wheatley for fifth spot after defeating the Sharks 6 - 3 at home before the home town crowd.


Jordan Orth lead the Flags with an early first period goal at 2:41 assisted by Calab Harse and Travis Mullen.  A power play goal by Jeff Schroeter from Dan Lumley and Mullen at 6:52 gave them the 2 - 0 lead heading into the second.

 

A short handed, unassisted goal at 7:35 by Jordan Orth, his second of the night pushed the Flags to a 3 - 0 lead in the second.  Wheatley battled back and at 14:43 Joe Woelk scored the Sharks first goal, but :16 seconds later Andrew Sokol from Jeff Schroeter gave Mooretown the 3 point spread as they took the 4 - 1 lead into the third.

The second period saw major penalties handed out and the Flags had three players tossed out of the game.  Jordan McBeath was the first to go for a checking from behind call, then later in the period Andrew Sokol and Mike Burns from the Flags were ejected along with Wheatley's Kevin Swatzky and Lucas Raffoul for fighting.

 

Play resumed and at 3:19 in the third Alex Rutherford from Cody Hardman and Dan Hachey widened the lead.  Again Wheatley dug in and Kyle Quick answered back with two back to back goals the first 3:49 and the second at 5:39.  Mooretown final goal came at 9:23 with Caden Fleming scoring on the power play assisted by Mullen, his 3rd point of the night and McGregor Haddon.

 

Wheatley outshot the Flags 30 - 26.  Net minder Braden Palocz earned the win for the Flags, Robbie Vrabel took the loss.

Mooretown penalty kill lines were perfect denying Wheatley of 8 opportunities.  The Flags were also perfect in their power play opportunities going 2 for 2.

 

Both Mooretown and Wheatley are even with 23 points each.  Dresden is nipping at their heels as they are just one point back with 22 points. 

 

Mooretown is back in action tonight as they head to Blenheim.   Then on Tuesday the Flags are in Essex and they return home on Saturday Dec 8 when they host Bell River.
