October 27, 2013
The Mooretown Flags traveled to
Amherstburg on Sunday night and came home with a
single point after taking a 2 - 1 loss that was
decided in shoot out against the Admirals in Great
Lakes Jr. C hockey league action.
"It wasn't one of our better games
I thought we came out kind of slow in the first
period and we had to battle back all game long but
we ended up getting a point. They had two
really nice goals in the shootout and we ended up
losing." Head Coach Jordan Pennesi said
Amherstburg took a 1 - 0 lead at
the end of the first period after scoring their lone
goal on the power play by James Brooks.
"Penalties were a factor in the
first two periods." Pennesi said "Definitely the
five on threes we did a good job killing the
penalties off but way too many and there was no flow
to the game at all. Last night a couple of guys only
got one or two shifts in the first two periods
because of the penalty troubles."
Mooretown went zero for five in
power play opportunities, Amherstburg went one for
After a scoreless second period
the Flags scored the equalizer in the third with Dan
Lumley scoring assisted by Chad Beauchamp at 6:38.
After three periods of play the
game went into overtime where neither sides score
sending the game into OT where the Admirals scored
two goals to take the win.
Amherstburg outshot the Flags 49 -
22. Despite the loss Flags netminder Brandon
Johnson had an outstanding game recording 47 saves.
"I think he (Johnson) played
really well and kept us in. He made I don't
know how many big saves, he played great. He
gave us the chance to win for sure. He got us a
point." Pennesi said
Klinton Kenny made 21 saves for
I'd rather see the guys play five
on five hockey game is not about power plays it we
need to make sure things don't get out of hand on
the other it's better when guys play five on five
hockey. Specially it get's everyone into the
game especially last night a couple of guys only got
one or two shifts in the first two periods because
of the penalty troubles.
The Flags are now 6-6-1-1 for 14
points. Next up they take on Dresden at home
on Saturday November 2. Dresden is 4-7-1-1.
"That should be a tough game too."
Pennesi said. "Dresden always come to play hard the
full 60 minutes. They like dunk and chase and
force you pretty hard so we got to make sure we play
well in our defensive zone to keep the pucks out of
our net. We did a good job of that last night
actually but we got to do the same Saturday."
