Petrolia Squires Weekend Action Secures Playoff Spot

january 11, 2015

The Petrolia Squires went 1 and 1 over the weekend taking a 4 - 3 win at home Friday night against Tavistock Royals and on Saturday on the road they suffered a 3 - 2 loss in Clinton against the Radars.

Friday night's win secured a playoff spot for the Squires with 4 games remaining in the regular season.  The Squires are in 4th place with a record of 12-7-0-1 for 25 points, 3 points behind 3rd place Tavistock. (13-5-0-2)

In Friday's game Tavistock took the early lead after five minutes of play in the first.  Squires came back and tied it up late in the period on a goal scored by Jeff Paulley.

Second period action saw the two teams end to end and with 2:12 left in the period Tavistock regained their lead only to have the Squires answer back just under a minute later when Jessie Drydack scored.  With 45 seconds left in the period Norm Leger found the back of the net to give the Squires the lead for the first time in the game. 

With 5:13 remaining in the game Chris Edwards scored an unassisted goal giving the Squires a 4 - 2 lead.  Tavistock battled back and with 1:29 left scored to narrow the gap, but the Squires held on for the win.

Brandon Campbell earned the win in net making 23 saves.

In Saturday's game in Clinton the two sides were even 1 - 1 after two periods and Clinton went on and scored 2 late goals in the third.  The Squires bounced back with a quick goal to narrow the gap to one but a late push wasn't enough and the Radars held on for the win.
