Essex would cut the lead in half in the second with Dylan Solecki scoring on the powerplay for the 73's. Essex would tie it up in the opening minutes of the third period, as Brett Beattie would score 1:28 into the third to make it a 2-2 game.

But Alvinston would go back to their powerplay three more times, scoring three unanswered powerplay goals. Connor Thompson added a powerplay goal 20 seconds after Essex scored to restore the lead.

Joe Archer would get his second of the game on the powerplay, and 28 seconds after that, Tanner Thompson would add the final powerplay goal, as the Flyers go 5 for 10 on the powerplay in the 5-2 victory.

Essex outshot the Flyers 35-25, but Alvinston goalie James Morreau stopped 33 shots to earn his second win of the season.

Alvinston is now 3-1-0 on the season and will travel to Blenheim on Sunday.
