HBC Peewees win 5-0, improve record to 3-1

Huge playoff game coming up against Strathroy on Feb. 8

By Pat Payton

The Home Building Centre A-E Peewees improved their OMHA round-robin playoff series record to 3-1 with a 5-0 victory over the home-town Oilers in Petrolia Wednesday night.

“The boys played really well in a chippy, Petrolia-style game,” coach Reg Clinton reported. “There was a lot of hooking and slashing, and Petrolia played the body pretty well. Our boys responded and started scoring.”

Two of the St. Marys goals came on powerplays. They came off the sticks of Jonah Lariviere and Connor Wheeler. Myles Clinton added a pair of goals and Simon Greig the other single.

Goalie Isaac Cousineau earned the shutout. “He made some big saves, awesome foot-work by Cousy again,” coach Clinton said.

Strathroy and Mt. Brydges are the other teams in the round-robin format. Only one of the four teams advances to the next playoff round.

“We’re a must win all the way in now,” Clinton said. “We’ve got to win out, and then we’d go to a one-game playoff with Strathroy, assuming they win their next two games.”

Home-ice loss to Rockets

In Game 3 of their OMHA round-robin series, the HBC Peewees lost 4-2 to rival Strathroy Jr. Rockets on Monday, Jan. 27 at the PRC.

The defeat left the Rock with a 2-1 record, while Strathroy improved to 3-0 with the win.

The teams entered the third period deadlocked 2-2. “It was back and forth,” coach Clinton said. “We played really well. We played well enough to win, but Strathroy got the timely goals.”

The Jr. Rockets clinched the victory with their fourth goal with 2:40 left on the clock.

Finn Wright and Sam Johnson scored the St. Marys goals, and Trevor Aarts went the distance in net.

Upcoming: The HBC Peewees host Mt. Brydges Cougars at the PRC on Monday, Feb. 3 at 7:10 p.m., and then head to Strathroy on Saturday, Feb. 8 for their huge game against the Rockets. Game time is 12 noon.
