Half an Inch More Could Make a Difference
friday november 28, 2014

The pinging sound off the pipes was heard about five times and one could have only wish for half an inch more that would have made a difference but instead the Flags had to settle taking a 3 - 1 loss in Alvinston Friday night against the Flyers.


"It was a good game with some bad breaks." General Manager John Baker said. "Stuff happens but it was a good effort."


With players off due to sickness and work the Flags traveled to Alvinston with 15 skaters and 2 goalies.  "All three lines played very well despite being short," Baker said "and BJ (Brandon Johnson had a really good game in net."


After a solid first period with neither side scoring Alvinston went on and scored three goals in the second. The first two were power play goals and the third was scored shorthanded.

Karsten Berg scored a power play goal and the shorthanded goal and Chad Rainsberry scored a single.


In the third Mooretown's Frankie White scored the lone goal of the period with Dan Lumley and David Addley earning the assists.


"I don't think the shots on goal were actual." Baker said in reference to the online scoreboard showing that Alvinston outshot the Flags 50 - 26.  "However BJ (Johnson) made many good stops." 


Brett Avery earned the win in net for Alvinston.


The flags power play line struggled as they went zero for ten on power play opportunities.  Alvinston scored twice on six opportunities.


The Flags are back in action on Wednesday December 3rd when they host Lakeshore at the Mooretown Sports Complex with an 8:00 pm puck drop.


Mooretown Notes:

At the Jr. C Showcase event held on Thursday November 27 the Great Lakes League shut out the Southern Ontario Jr. hockey league 4 - 0.


Mooretown players Ethan Dupont and Austin Hewton competing in the showcase game each earned an assist in the win.
