Cement Midgets start second round with 1-1 tie

Three games in four-day span next week  

By Pat Payton


St. Marys Cement ‘BB’ Midgets started their second-round of OMHA playoffs with a 1-1 tie against the Jr. Rockets in Strathroy Thursday night.

The teams also played 10 minutes of scoreless overtime.

“We only had 11 players,” Rock coach Brent Rae noted. “The boys were getting a little fatigued by the end of it.”

Strathroy opened the scoring midway through the first period. A shot from the point was deflected into the St. Marys net.

The Cement men tied it midway through the second period on a powerplay goal by Kirk Boreham. Assists went to defenceman Sam Bolton and captain Nathan Reay.

“It could be just as physical as the Dorchester series, but I think it will be a lot cleaner series,” Rae replied when asked the question. “The two teams are evenly matched and it’s been back and forth all year.

“If anything, I think Strathroy’s weakness will be their goaltending. But their team is so solid, it’s tough to get there and get shots. If we can do that, I think we’ll be successful.”

Game 2 in the six-point series is Monday, Feb. 3 at the PRC at 8:45 p.m. Game 3 is back in Strathroy on Tuesday at 9:15 p.m. Game 4 is Thursday in St. Marys at 9:15 p.m.

“It doesn’t leave us a lot of time for practices,” coach Rae noted.

Frayne Bantams lose final game

The Frayne Custom Cabinets A-E Bantams completed their four-game, round-robin playoff series Thursday night with a 6-1 loss to the visiting Mooretown Jr. Flags.

The game was closer than the final score might indicate as Mooretown held a slim 1-0 lead after the first period. However, the visitors broke the contest wide open with three goals in a span of just 52 seconds early in the middle frame and went to the intermission break up 4-0.

Centre Jaxon Fifield finally got the Rock on the board early in the third, connecting on a powerplay to cut the deficit to 4-1. The Jr. Flags added a pair of goals midway through the period to complete the scoring.

“The score on the board didn’t reflect how we played; it was just how the bounces went,” St. Marys coach Gord Cookson said. “We played a really good first period, but three goals in 50 seconds can really deflate a team.”

Cookson said the first three games in the series were all close.

“We had two ties and lost the other one in the final minute,” he said. “We kept it close, but it wasn’t enough tonight. It’s now between Mooretown and Dorchester who advances.”

The Frayne Bantams had a record of 0-2-2 in four home-and-away games against Mooretown and Dorchester.
