Flyers Drop Heartbreaker to Walkerton

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

Quinton Maddock scored the overtime winner, in 4-3 Hawks' victory

The Goderich Flyers have picked up one point in their first two games of the Provincial Junior Hockey League regular season, as they dropped a 4-3 overtime decision to Walkerton Saturday.

Quinton Maddock scored his second goal of the game on the power play, 1:45 into the extra period for the win at the Maitland Rec Centre.

The Flyers rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the Hawks on goals by Matt Bean and Riley Connors, with Mitch Fisher, Hayden Benneweis and Trent Michie assisting.

Cody Treble and Jacob Kirkton set up Chase Meurs with 13:55 left in the third period, to force the game into overtime.

Ryan Shaw scored Walkerton's first and second goals, after a scoreless opening period.

Goderich goaltender Kyle Dunlop made 28 saves in the loss.

Flyers' head coach Chris Corbett praises his team's work ethic, despite some mistakes and ill-timed penalties.

Corbett says the condition of the ice was as good as could be expected, given the hot and humid conditions, and the Flyers can't use it as an excuse for losing.

Goderich got goals from Matt Bean and Jeff Fritzley, in a 4-2 loss at Wingham Friday.

The Flyers travel to Kincardine next Friday night, then return to MRC to host Mount Forest next Saturday at 7:35pm.

One other PJHL Pollock Division game Saturday saw netminder Aidan Quish make 26 saves in posting the shutout, as Mount Forest defeated Hanover 4-0.

The Kincardine at Mitchell game was postponed, due to poor ice conditions.
