Pat Brethauer October 9, 2011

Make it 6 in a row in this heated contest as the Mooretown Flags defeated the Wheatley Sharks by a score of 3 - 2 in Great Lakes Jr. C Hockey action.  The two teams are now 1 - 1 as the Sharks took the first win in their house on Sept 19.

Both sides went scoreless after the first period of play and in the second the Sharks went up 2 - 1.  Wheatley scored first on a goal by Jordan Carnevale at 1:37 into the period.  Both sides then went on and shared powerplay goals with Jeff Schroeter assisted by Josh Teschke scoring for the Flags and Austin Fontaine scoring for Wheatley to once again take the lead.

In the third Mooretown's powerplay line continue to work for the Flags as they went on and score 2 goals in the third.  Schroeter scored the tying goal assisted by Teschke at 4:13 and following at 7:41 Josh Teschke scored his first of the night and game winner with Schroeter and Michael Gray earning the assist. 




As tempers flared in the final stanza, several penalties were handed to both sides with Wheatley suffering the worst playing shorthanded after Tyler Charamba earned a double minor for butt ending and then ejected from the game after spitting and for physical abuse of an official giving the Flags the man advantage as the final whistle blew.
