Flyers Win One, Lose One In Weekend PJHL Play

Peter Jackson | by Peter Jackson  

Newly-signed forward Kaden Hoggarth scored three goals in 5-1 win at Walkerton and 5-4 home-ice loss to Hanover

According to Goderich Flyers' head coach Jim Fritzley: "It's a work in progress".

The Provincial Junior Hockey League club is showing signs of improvement, after a 5-1 win at Walkerton Friday night and a 5-4 loss to Hanover at the Maitland Rec Centre Saturday.

In Saturday's game, Fritzley says the Flyers had a strong first period and they bounced back in the third, after a low-energy performance in the second.

Goderich scored all four of their goals against Hanover on the power play, with newly-signed forward Kaden Hoggarth and captain Trent Michie accounting for two each.

Defenceman Kyle Langlois had four assists, to lead Flyers' point-getters.

Forward Zack Cameron led the Barons with three goals, including one with the extra skater.

Fritzley believes the signing of Hoggarth and the return of defenceman Trent Buchanan provide a spark the Flyers need.

Buchanan had been absent from hockey for almost two years, after suffering a hand injury.

Hoggarth has scored three goals in his first two games with the Flyers, one of which was the opening goal of Friday's game at Walkerton, at the 1:29 mark of the first period.

Forward Eric Vander Eyk scored twice for Goderich Friday, with Matt Bean and Avery Timmermans adding the other singles.

Goderich remains in seventh place in the PJHL Pollock Division, with a 1-and-9 record.

The Flyers have a layover until October 20th, when they host the Mitchell Hawks in a Sunday matinee at MRC.

Saturday's other PJHL Pollock Division games:

Jacob Traynor and Mike Fieghen each scored twice, to lead Kincardine to a 7-2 victory over Walkerton at the Davidson Centre.

Dawson Bolger scored the game-winning goal at 13:27 of the third period, as Mount Forest outlasted first-place Wingham 5-4.
