saturday october 25, 2014

The Petrolia Squires winning streak continues after taking a 5 - 4 win over the Tillsonburg Thunder on Friday night at home in WOAA Senior AA hockey league action.

The Thunder took a 2 - 0 lead in the first period with goals scored by Kevin Galerno and Ryan Stevenson, but the Squires battled back and tied late in the period.  Scoring the first goal for the Squires was Chris Wilson assisted by James Edgar and Shawn Waldie.  Chris Edwards added the second goal with Nathan Ansell and Edgar picking up the assists. 

Action continue in the second and the Thunder once again took the lead on a power play goal led by Nathan Peacock at 12:39.  As time was winding down the Squires found themselves on the power play and with :08 seconds left on the clock Norm Leger found the opening and scored to end the period tied at three all.  James Edgar earned his third assist of the night on the play and Jeremiah Goodacre also picked up a point with an assist.

In the third Kraig Wright scored at 4:51 to give the Squries the lead for the first time in the game with Andrew Sokol and Dan Venema assisting. That lead was short lived just over a minute later when Jason Skinner scored a short handed goal for the Thunder to tie things up once again. But another shorthanded goal this time by the Squires Zac Macnaght who picked the puck up at the blue line and skated in and scored unassisted.  The Squires held on to take their 4th win of the season.

Tillsonburg outshot Petrolia 43 - 35.
