Kings Crown Flyers

Penetanguishene | by Peter Jackson  

Penetang defeated Goderich 7-4 in PJHL inter-division play Saturday

Two quick Penetang goals in the second period and another two in rapid succession in the third proved to be the difference, as the Kings defeated the Goderich Flyers 7-4 in Provincial Junior Hockey League inter-division play Saturday.

The Flyers started a three-game road swing with their longest trip of the season to the Georgian Bay-area community, one day after a heartbreaking 6-5 overtime loss to the Kincardine Bulldogs at the Maitland Rec Centre Friday.

After a scoreless first period, Matt Bean's goal from Noah Kuno and Skylar Rutledge broke the ice 4:26 into the second, which was followed by two Penetang goals in 16 seconds a short time later.

Defenceman Morgan Benneweis scored unassisted to even up accounts and Chase Meurs' unassisted power play marker put the Flyers ahead 3-2 with 6:45 left in the middle period, which ended in a 3-3 tie.

Penetang struck early in the final period with two goals in 55 seconds, pacing a five-goal run that started with 2:09 left in the second.

The outcome was all but decided when Goderich's Braeden Duncan took a set-up from Matt Bean for the game's final goal, with 2:20 left in the third period.

The loss drops the sixth-place Flyers to 3-7-0-1 in the PJHL Pollock Division with seven points -- two points ahead of Hanover and five behind Kincardine, both of whom were idle Saturday.

Goderich travels to Mitchell for their next game, Wednesday at 8:30pm.

The only other game involving a PJHL Pollock Division team saw Klayton Hoelscher lead Mount Forest with three goals and David Lobsinger make 23 saves, as the Patriots shut out the Orillia Terriers 11-0 in an inter-division match-up.

Penetang and Orillia play in the PJHL's Carruthers division -- the Flyers defeated the Caledon Golden Hawks of the Carruthers Division 4-3 at MRC on September 23rd.
