Mooretown Penalties Killed Chances
Thursday November 6, 2014

At home In Great Lakes Jr. C Hockey league action the Mooretown Flags battled back from a 2 - 0 deficit in the first period against the Lakeshore Canadiens to tie things up in the second.  But in the third after the Flags had the lead twice the team ran into penalty troubles and opened the door allowing 4 goals to give away the win with a final score of 8 - 4.

In the first period Lakeshore scored late in the period on a power play then added a second goal just over a minute and three seconds later to take the 2 - 0 lead. Scoring in the first for Lakeshore were Liam MacDougall and Mejoe Gasparovic. Lakeshore outshot the Flags 15 - 4.  Mooretown had one power play opportunity in the period, Lakeshore scored once on three chances.



In the second it was Mooretown that scored first on a power play then added their second just under two minutes later to tie things up.  Dan Lumley scored the power play goal assisted by Ryan Lyle and Ethan Dupont.  Dupont later caught the puck in front of the net and slapped it into the opening to score the tying goal.  Lyle and Lumley earned the assist on the second goal. 

Lakeshore led on shots 15 - 8.  Mooretown scored the one power play goal on three opportunities, Lakeshore had two power play opportunities but were denied.

Penalties were a factor in the third period. 



At the beginning of the third it was a solid hockey game and the Flags took the lead twice.  The first goal was scored by Caden Fleming from Kyle Smith and Alec Segers at 1:53. Lakeshore came back at 3:04 and tied the game. The Flags regained the lead at 4:18 when Alec Segers scored assisted by Ryan Lyle and Brent Blais but that lead was cut a minute and five seconds later when Lakeshore scored to tie the game 4 - 4.


At 7:56 Lakeshore regained the lead and never looked back scoring 4 goals.  The Flags couldn't get any scoring chances going because they had to play short handed for the last eight minutes in the game. Two of the goals were scored on the power play that included a 5 on 3 goal. 


Scoring in the third for Lakeshore were Zack Bedard, Hunter Corp, Brenden Crundwell, Luke Sanko (PP) and AP player Austin Jennings (PP).


In total Lakeshore scored three times on eleven power play opportunities.  Mooretown scored once on seven.


Lakeshore out shot Mooretown 16 - 5 in the third for a game total of 46-17 in favour of Lakeshore.




Despite the loss the score would have been a lot higher if it wasn't for the outstanding performance by Flags netminder  Brendon Johnson.  Johnson stood solid making many outstanding saves that included some unbelievable glove saves picking the pucks off and frustrating his opponents.  In total Johnson made 38 saves.


Lakeshore's netminder Colin Tetreault earned the win making 13 saves.



The Flags continue to sit in the bottom of the league with a record of 2-11-1.  The team is back in action when they travel to Dresden to go up against the Kings then return home on Saturday hosting Wallaceburg.  Both games begin at 7:30 pm.
