Knights Win Third Straight

Meaford | by Fred Wallace  

Post Game Comments from Coach Nathan Parrish

Knights of Meaford Netminder Jack Edmands 


Greater Metro Junior Hockey League

Knights of Meaford 3 Bradford Bulls 1

Knights 3 Bulls 1

Ragnar Russ scored twice for the Knights who have built a 3 game winning streak.

Russ opened the scoring for Meaford 36 seconds into the game and then potted his second marker just before the 10 minute mark of the opening frame.

Kyle Stevens upped the Knights lead to 3-0 very early in the 2nd period which prompted the Bulls to switch netminders inserting Brendan Barada in place of starter Yamato Ogawa.

Barada did not give up a goal over the final 38 minutes of the contest and kept the game from getting out of reach.

Meaford had penalty issues over the first portion of the game , going shorthanded 5 consecutive times before getting a power play opportunity at the midway point of the game.

Jonne Walkky scored the lone goal for the Bulls, a power play marker at 4:42 of the 2nd period, but that was the only puck to get behind Jack Edmands who posted the win in goal.

Bradford may have been dealing with fatigue as they played the night before at Wiarton, returned to Bradford and then headed up to Meaford for an afternoon start at the Meaford and St Vincent Community Centre.

The Knights will put their 3 game win streak on the line Thursday night when they host the Orangeville Ice Crushers.

The Bulls will host the South Muskoka Shield on Wednesday night in Bradford
