Firefighter Peewees just one win from provincial title

By Pat Payton

Rock 4 - Muskies 0

In the pivotal third game of the series Saturday afternoon in Lindsay, a very quick start was the key for the Firefighter Peewees in a 4-0 victory over the home-town Muskies.

The win gave the Rock a 2-1 series lead, leaving them just one victory from a provincial ‘BB’ title.

Colton Henderson scored 48 seconds into the contest, from captain Ryan Hodkinson and Finn Stewart, and the goal would stand up as the winner. An unassisted goal by Griffin McGregor put the Lindsay team down 2-0 just two minutes into the contest.

“That was the whole game right there; it deflated them,” coach Dwain Smith said. “We were preaching good quality shots instead of just the number of shots.”

Nate Schiedel put St. Marys up 3-0 midway through the second period. Schiedel then completed the scoring with his second of the game just 15 seconds into the third. Brock Chessell assisted on the shorthanded marker. It came after Muskies had changed goalies to start the final period. “That goal just took the wind right out of their sails,” Smith said.

Shots were 24-23 in favour of the Firefighters, with Carter Froggett earning the shutout. Both teams picked up 12 minutes in penalties.

“We stopped Lindsay on their breakout quite a bit,” Smith noted. “They have a couple of guys who can really wheel. Our high guy came into effect; he was our first line of defence, then our defence could step up. We hemmed them in their zone quite a bit, too.

“Lindsay has a couple of standouts, No. 91 and No. 27, who do the majority of their scoring. And they have a giant of a defenceman in No. 8, who can skate and handle the puck.”

Smith hoped Firefighters would be bringing home a provincial title following Sunday’s Game 4.

“We don’t want to take any chances or take anything for granted,” the coach said. “We want to play our game and go right at them. We don’t want to force Game 5.”
