Mooretown Flags Suffer Loss Before Christmas Break
December 22,  2012


The Mooretown Flags dropped to seventh spot in Great Lakes Jr C Hockey League standings race after losing 6 - 2 to the Alvinston Flyers Saturday night before 210 hockey fans in Mooretown.

The Flyers opened the scoring at 3:39 in the first period on a goal scored by Karsten Berg.  Riley Roberts scored his 14th goal of the season and put the Flags on the scoreboard at 5:33.  Jeff Schroeter assisted on the goal.  Chad Vaneyk gave Alvinston a 2 - 1 lead heading into the second period at 17:30.

Second period saw Alvinston widen their lead by two after the Flyers scored two unanswered goals.  Dylan Lightfood scored at 10:49 and  Cody Perriam scored at 12:00 shorthanded.

In the third period Travis Mullen scored with just :23 seconds off the clock to give Mooretown their second goal and narrowed the gap.  Schroeter and Caden Fleming assisted on the goal. However the Flyers went on and scored two more goal at 5:53 and 8:46 and held on to take the win.  Karsten Berg scored his second of the night and the final goal for Alvinston was scored by Josh Moore.


"We played ok but I thought they wanted it a little bit more than we did." said Head Coach Jordan Pennesi. "I thought all the loose pucks they were first man there and our D zone got run around too much and gave them too much opportunity to score."

Mooretown and Alvinston were even with a total of 32 shots on goal.  Brandon Johnson took the loss in net and Brad Jacklin earned the win.

Both sides went scoreless on the power play.  Mooretown had two opportunities, Alvinston had six.

The Flags are now one point behind and two games back behind the Dresden Kings.

"Our D Zone coverage is something that we got to work on for the rest of the year and if we can do that well I think we should do good for the rest of the season." said Penessi

The Flags are off until December 30 when they travel to face third place Blenheim  Blades.
