Essex, On - In Great Lakes Jr C Hockey league action this was the second match up between these two teams in Essex. It took overtime in both games to decide the winner and the Flags lost for the second time by a score of  4 - 3.


"I thought this was the best game we played so far this year."  said Coach Jordan Pennesi "The team played well, skated hard and with discipline."

In the first period, Jeff Schroeter scored the first goal on the power play at 15:22 assisted by Dan Lumley and Travis Mullen.  Essex answered back just over two minutes later to tie. 

In the second Mooretown took a two goal lead with the first goal scored by McGregor Haddon fourteen seconds into the period.  Dan Lumley and Mike Burns assisted.  Dan Hachey widened the lead at 9:21 assisted by Adam Hayes.  At 12:07 Phil Janikowski narrowed the gap but the period ended with the Flags leading by one.


Third period action saw Essex score the lone goal to tie the game at three.  Alex Garon scored the equalizer.  Regulation time ended and the game went into overtime. 


As in the previous game back in September  the referee's once again called a penalty in overtime on the Flags to give Essex the man advantage which they capitalized on and scored to take the win. Tyler Raymont scored the power play goal for the 73's.


Essex outshot the Flags 43 - 13.  Despite the loss, Brandon Johnson was outstanding in net turning away 39 shots. 

"Brandon (Johnson) played well and with a lot of confidence, he was real steady for us in net " said Pennesi  "I am really pleased with the way the team played tonight."

Aaren Romeril took the win with just 14 saves for the 73's.

Both sides went 1 for 5 in penalty opportunities.
