Mooretown Flags Lost at Home to Alvinston
Saturday January 12, 2013

The Mooretown Flags took a 5 - 3 loss on home ice Saturday against the Alvinston Flyers.



Prior to the game the Flags organization honoured their 1987-1988 OHA All Ontairo Jr. C Championship Team.  Several members of the team were in attendance to join in the festivities.  After presentations and ceremonial puck drop the game got underway.


"The boys were pretty pumped up for the first period." said Head Coach Jordan Pennesi. "It was nice to see the team coming out and the boys kind of looking back and hearing about the team winning since it's the only team Mooretown has gone on and won a major championship."  

After the first period both sides were even with one apiece.  Troy Whitely scored the first goal of the game for Alvinston at 5:21.  With :20 seconds remaining in the first period Matt Brandon scored a power play goal for the Flags assisted by McGregor Haddon.

Tyler Kettler and Kirk Dorman sent the score to 3 - 1 for the Flyers with goals at 2:12 and 3:44.  Mooretown narrowed that gap with Brandon scoring his second goal with Haddon assisting at 10:21. 


In the third Alex Rutherford tied things up for Mooretown at 1:14.  Matt Brandon earned his third point of the game with the assist.  Travis Mullen also contributed on the goal.


Alvinston regained the lead with Kirk Dorman scoring his second of the night at 9:12.  At 16:15 the Flags bench took a penalty and it was costly as Tyler Kettler scored on the power play to take the 2 point lead to secure the win.


"I thought we played ok, but I thought they wanted it a little bit more than we did." said Head Coach Jordan Pennesi. "They had a lot of loose pucks and when they had a chance they buried it and we didn't."


 Alvinston outshot the Flags 40 - 25.  Despite the loss Brandon Johnson made 35 saves in the game.  Jamie Morreau earned the win with 22 saves.


"Brandon always plays well in net and he shows up to play". said Pennesi "He is a consistent player, I thought he had the chance to win but we did not want it."

Alvinston had a total of eight power play opportunities and scored on one.  Mooretown had just two opportunities and also scored one.


"As I have said all year I would like to see consistency in refereeing and we definitely didn't have it tonight. One of the referees didn't call one penalty in the game but the only one he called was on me for yelling at him.  It's frustrating when the calls are not consistent."  said Pennesi

Mooretown is now 14-15-4-1 for the season with a total of 33 points and holding onto seventh spot.  Alvinston is third in the standings race with 20 - 12- 1 - 2 for 43 points, followed closely by Wheatley who is one point away and two games back.


With six games remaining in the regular season, Mooretown is back in action on Friday January 18 when they travel to Dresden to take on the Kings, then return home on Saturday January 19th when they host Wallaceburg.
