Jr. Attack Bantams Even on Weekend with Shorthanded Squad
In the OMHA Tri-County Bantam Smith division home opener, the Owen Sound Jr. Attack Gaviller & Company Bantam Majors lost 4-2 to the Woolwich Wildcats Sunday afternoon at the Bayshore.
After a scoreless first period, Dylan Brown opened the scoring in the second period (assisted by Nathan Roy and Kyle Betts) on a very sweet tic-tac-toe-in-the-top-corner powerplay goal. Kai Hiemstra added the other goal for Owen Sound.
The Jr. Attack took on the Wildcats with a short bench, after Saturday night's late game in Hespeler left the squad with only 11 skaters with 2 serving suspensions and another out with concussion from a serious yet un-penalized check to the head.
In the Tri-County Bantam Smith division regular season opener late Saturday night, the Owen Sound Jr. Attack Gaviller & Company Bantam Majors took on Hespeler in Cambridge, defeating the host Shamrocks 5-1.
Janine Vandershot opened the scoring in the 1st period, assisted by Mitchell Wand. Dylan Brown (assisted by Kyle Betts and Nathan
Roy) and Kai Hiemstra (assisted by Emerson Masters) added singles in the 2nd period.
Kyle Betts (unassisted) and Kai Hiemstra (unassisted) added to the tally in the 3rd period.
Andrew Rutherford was strong in goal.
The Owen Sound Jr. Attack Gaviller & Company Bantam Majors are next in action on Saturday October 1st where they host New Hamburg - 3:30 PM at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre
Stephens Equipment Major Bantams Win Two - Tie One
On Saturday, September 24th, the Stephens Equipment
Grey-Bruce Highlanders AAA Major Bantams played their first regular season
game of the year against the Guelph Storm in Ayton. The game started out
well, with the Highlanders out-shooting the Storm 12-5 in the first period,
except for the lone goal scored by Guelph just before the buzzer to give the
visiting team a 1-0 lead heading into the second period.
Things were looking even worse when at 12:43 Guelph notched
another goal to take a two goal lead. The Highlanders woke up after that,
starting when Garrett McFadden (Kincardine) rushed up ice with the puck,
dishing it over to a waiting Caleb Stephens (Collingwood) in front of the
net, who buried it top-shelf at 7:10. Brenden Welsh (Owen Sound) assisted
on the play. At 4:07 Stephens bulged the twine once again, assists coming
from Welsh and Hunter Robins-Gibbons (North-Bruce Peninsula). At 1:15 Ethan
Skinner (Kincardine) blocked a shot just inside the Highlanders blue line
and soon found himself on a breakaway, going in alone to deke the Storm
goalie and give the Highlanders their first lead of regular season play.
The Stephens Equipment crew outshot the opposition 18-6 in the second frame.
The third period was all Highlanders, out-shooting the Storm
15-4, with Skinner 5-holing his second goal of the game on the power play,
assisted by McFadden and Brady Anderson (Arran-Elderslie). Goalie Tyler
Fassl (North-Bruce Peninsula) secured the Highlander win with his solid play
in the 4-2 score.
On Sunday the Stephens Equipment Crew hosted the Niagara
Falls Canucks in a double-header, gaining three out four possible points in
the matches. In game one the Highlanders opened the scoring at 9:13 when
Carter Franks (Dundalk) fed Jordan Vanhaelemeesch (Saugeen Shores) in the
high slot, who fired one to the top right corner of the net. At 8:11
McFadden scored to give the Highlanders a 2-0 lead, assisted by Spencer
Elder (Owen Sound) and Anderson. At 4:11 the Canucks scored to close to
within a goal. About a minute later the visitors scored again to knot the
game at 2-2.
At 13:16 of the second period the Canucks took the lead on a
power play goal and then at 11:45 widened it to two goals with another goal.
The Highlanders wasted no time in closing the gap to one goal when Elder
went in alone on a break-away deking the Falls goalie on the play.
The third period saw the Highlanders start to take control
of the game, with Skinner finding another 5-hole to tie the game up at 4-4,
Anderson assisting on the play. Try as they might the Highlanders couldn't
get the go-ahead goal in the remaining minutes of the game.
Game two proved to be a more solid start for the Stephens
Equipment team opening up a 3-0 lead in the first period, the first goal
coming at 7:27 from Skinner, assisted by Elder and Jamison Buck
(Collingwood). At 2:17 Franks fired a shot to the top right corner of the
net from the high slot for the 2-0 score, assisted by Stephens and
Vanhaelemeesch. Twenty seconds later Skinner potted his second goal of the
game on a set-up by Robins-Gibbons and Elder.
The Highlanders continued to dominate for most of the
remaining time in the game, but at 3:37 of the third period, with the
Canucks on the power play, Highlander goalie Fassl mishandled a shoot-in by
the Falls and had the puck squirt out to the front of the net where a lone
Canuck player recovered the puck, depositing it into the empty net, thus
spoiling Fassl's shut-out bid. With about a minute remaining in the game
and a man-advantage, the Canucks pulled their goalie. As the power play
ended, Robins-Gibbons managed to knock the puck over to Welsh, who
back-handed the puck over the opposition to clear the zone. On the play
Franks got hold of the puck and on his back-hand sent the puck down the ice
into the empty net for his second goal of the game and a 4-1 in for the
Stephens Equipment team.
Next weekend the Highlanders host the Halton Hurricanes in a
double-header on Saturday in Flesherton, with game times at 2:00 pm and 8:00
pm. They then have a road game on Sunday at the Mohawk 4 Ice Centre,
against the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs.
The Owen Sound Jr. Attack Garb & Gear Minor PeeWee squad defeated Woolwich 3-2 in their opening game of Tri-County action.
