Flyers' Power Play Forces PJHL Tie With Bulldogs

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

Goderich rallied from a 3-0 deficit, to tie Kincardine 4-4

A second-period rally spurred by the power play has led the Goderich Flyers to a 4-4 tie against Kincardine in Provincial Junior Hockey League play at the Maitland Rec Centre.

The Bulldogs Saturday built a 3-0 lead on goals by Jordan Van Haelemeesch and Keegan Angel in the first period, and Tyler Sutter early in the second.

An altercation in the Goderich zone mid-way through the second period led to multiple penalties, and the Flyers took advantage of having the extra man.

Ryan Stulp's first of two goals came at 10:31 of the middle frame, followed 58 seconds later by a marker from rookie defenceman Trent Bell.

Stulp struck again to tie the game 3-3 with 6:57 left in the second period, then Tyler Stacey gave Goderich a one-goal lead with 2:35 remaining.

Flyers forward Tyler McCracken contributed three assists with Stulp, Wyatt Carey, Mitchell Kellington, Riley Connors and Noah Kuno getting one helper each.

Kincardine's Mike Feighen forced overtime with his goal at 17:13 of the third period.

The Bulldogs outshot Goderich 38 to 31 through 67 minutes of play.

McCracken says the Flyers became energized on the extended power play, which followed a lengthy delay while penalties were assessed.

The Flyers play their next four games on the road then return to host Mitchell at MRC on December 23rd, while Kincardine entertains Hanover at the Davidson Centre next Saturday.

The only other PJHL Pollock division game Saturday saw Troy Oakley lead Mount Forest with two goals in the Patriots' 6-2 home-ice victory over Wingham.

In the PJHL Yeck Division Saturday, Ian Vandenheuvel had a hat-trick and Christian Petrozza enjoyed a five-point night, as Exeter skated to an 8-1 win at Mount Brydges.
