Flyers' Winning Streak Snapped

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

A 2-1 Goderich win at Kincardine Saturday was followed by a 5-2 loss to Walkerton Sunday

The Goderich Flyers have had a three-game winning-streak snapped, in an upset loss to the Walkerton Hawks in weekend Provincial Junior Hockey League action.

The Flyers put in an uninspired performance at the Lucknow and District Sports Complex Sunday, as they dropped a 5-2 decision to the Hawks.

Walkerton established a 2-0 lead through 20 minutes of play.

The Hawks' two-goal lead lasted until the 8:00 mark of the second period, when Goderich forward Mitch Fisher converted a feed from Trent Michie and recently-acquired defenceman Reid Ramseyer.

Michie wrapped up the Goderich scoring with less than four minutes left in the third period, from Matt Bean and Jeff Fritzley.

Brayden Fisher led Walkerton with two goals with Hunter Zettler, Austin VanWyck and Evan Visser accounting for singles.

Flyers' goaltender Logan Vermunt had his hands full throughout the afternoon, dealing with 44 Walkerton shots while Goderich had 25 shots on Hawks' netminder Josh Silverman.

The loss by sixth place Goderich leaves them four points ahead of Walkerton, who have a game in hand in the PJHL Pollock Division standings.

The game in Lucknow followed what could be described as the Flyers' best of the season, in which they defeated the Kincardine Bulldogs 2-1 at the Davidson Centre Saturday.

After a scoreless first period, the Bulldogs' Jerrid Fossold opened the scoring at 4:33 of the middle frame.

The lead lasted less than four minutes, when Bean and Ramseyer set up Fritzley for the tying goal.

The game winner for Goderich came with 1:43 remaining in regulation time, when Cody Treble banged home a feed from Chad Treble and Ramseyer.

Ramseyer comes to the Flyers by way of a recent trade with Mitchell, which saw veteran defenceman Kyle Langlois headed to the Hawks.

The Flyers visit Kincardine again Friday in an 8:30pm start at the Davidson Centre, then return to the Maitland Rec Centre to host the Hanover Barons, Saturday at 7:30pm.
