Coming off a 5 - 3 win over Wheatley Saturday night in Great Lakes Jr C league action, the Flags took a 7 - 4 loss in Blenheim Sunday night.

 

After a tight first period both sides were even with one apiece.  Matt Clark scored for Blenheim and a minute a four seconds later Nolan Riley evened the score.

 

In the second Alec Segers gave the Flags the lead for the first and only time early in the period only to have Blenheim's Nolan VandenBoorn scored just over a minute later.  Blenheim went on and scored back to back goals to take a 4 - 2 lead with Hunter Burk and Kirk McKillop scoring.  Mooretown battled back and at 14:13 Joe DeSena narrowed the gap and the score would remain 4 - 3 heading into the final period.

 

Three minutes into the third Blenheim widened their lead to 5 on a goal scored by Kier Cumming. Flags Trevor Bogaert scored the only power play goal in the game that narrowed the gap once again. But just before the midway point VandenBoorn added his second goal of the night for the Blades.  In an last minute effort the Flags pulled their goalie only to have VandenBoorn score his third into the empty net.

 

Shots on goal recorded were Blenheim 36 - Mooretown 22.  Brandon Johnson took the loss turning away 29 shots, Eric Stewardson took the win with 18 saves.
