Mooretown Flags Lost Game 2 in OT
February 8, 2014

By Pat Brethauer


After being tied 2 - 2 after regulation time the Blenheim Blades scored just :58 seconds in the overtime period to take the 3 - 2 win in game 2 of the Great Lakes Jr. C Playoff series.

Heading to the overtime period both teams had scored single goals in the first and second period.  Brett Thompson scored the first goal in the game to give the Flags the lead at 4:05.  Sam Jasmin earned the assist.  The Flags took a couple a penalties late in the period that gave Blenheim a five on three power play which they scored on.  Dylan Muzzatti scored the power play goal.



In the second period Spencer Bronzi scored at 14:31 to give the Flags the lead for the second time.  Thompson and Sam Jasmin earned the assist.  The lead was short lived as Blenheim scored a couple of minutes later by Justin Rossignol that tied the game.


In the third period neither side scored and the game went into a 20 minute overtime that was won in the first minute of play after Mackenzie Dick picked up the puck after it was turned over in Mooretown's end. 


"I thought it was a good game." Coach Jordan Pennesi said "It was a fluke goal at the end but I thought we worked hard for a full sixty minutes."


Blenheim outshot the Flags 47 - 27.  Brandon Johnson made 44 saves in the game for Mooretown, Eric Stewards took the win making 25 saves.


Mooretown took six minutes in penalties on three infractions, Blenheim was handed just one penalty for two minutes.

Blenheim scored one goal on three power play opportunities, Mooretown went scoreless on the one opportunity.


"It was pretty tight game. I wasn't too sure about our goalie interference call in the first, it came down to haunt us in the end." Pennesi said "However can't dwell on the loss we got to build off our positives.  I thought we did a good job on the forecheck and forcing their D."



Blenheim now leads the series 2 - 0 in the best of seven series.

The two teams are back in action tonight (Sunday) for their third game in three nights. Game four will be back at home on Wednesday February 12.


"I told the boys at the start of the year it takes four games to win a series not just two, so there is a lot of work to be done."



Side Note:

Sarniasports attended both Sarnia Legionnaires and Mooretown Flags Jr. C. games on Saturday and observed players from both opposing teams (Leamington Flyers and Blenheim Blades) had tied their skates with lime green laces. 

The green laces were worn in memory of 15 year old Windsor native Kevin Siddall. 

Kevin, the son of former Detroit Tigers catcher Joe Siddall, passed away on Feb 4th after a six-month battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. 

Kevin was a member of the
Windsor Stars Baseball Organization and Windsor Minor Hockey Association and is survived by his parents Joe & Tamara and his three older siblings Brooke, Brett and Mackenzie.
