Mooretown Flags Drop one in Essex in Great Lakes Jr C Hockey Action
December 5,  2012

Essex, On -  One would say it was a close game until the third period when the Flags ran into penalty trouble and gave up three power play goals in the 6 - 2 loss against the league leading Essex 73's.

Rookie Riley Roberts scored his 11th goal of the season to give the Flags a 1 - 0 lead in the first period.  Andrew Sokol and Ryan Jennings contributed to the goal.  In the second period Essex scored 3 goals at 3:59, 9:25 and 10:19 with Jordan Brohman, Adam Dunnmore and Matthew Herbert scoring.  At 13:35 Mooretown narrowed the gap after Caden Fleming scored from Alec Rutherford and McGregor Haddon.  Action continued and the second period ended with Essex leading 3 - 2.

In the third the Flags were unable to stop Essex power play and goals were scored by  Aaron Thiebert, Ryan Muzzin and Kevin Boggs.

Mooretown tallied 37 minutes in penalty minutes on 15 infractions.  Essex took a total of 27 minutes on 13 infractions.

Essex outshot the Flags 44 - 21   Despite the loss Brandon Johnson was outstanding in net with a total of 38 saves.  Trevor Wheaton was the winning goalie with only 19 saves.

The Flags are now 10 - 10 - 4 - 1 for the season and once again share 5th spot with Wheatley with a total of 25 points.

Next up the Flags have another big game when they host second place Belle River Canadiens on Saturday December 8.   This is the 4th meeting between the two teams and Belle River leads the series 2 - 1. Game time is set for 7:30 at the Moore Sports Complex.
