WAXERS TAKE ONE ON THE CHIN IN HUNTSVILLE BUT LEAVE THE WILDCATS TREMBLING IN THEIR WAKE 
Markham could do nothing right in the first two periods, falling behind 6-1 but then with about five minutes remaining the offensive gears unleashed their fury upon the Huntsville cage and they closed to within 7-5 (the seventh goal an empty netter), there was no doubt that if the clock had an additional couple of minutes on it that the Waxers would have pulled out the win. The offensive explosion late in the third and the complete collapse of the Wildcats as they cowered beneath the scoring might of the Waxers was something that had not been witnessed by many oldtimers, at any level, let alone Junior.

For the second time in as many games the Waxers faced off against the North York Rangers and ran into excellent goaltending. Jimmy Ball's powerplay goal in the third period, stepping in from the point to roof a wrister to the glove side turned out to be the winning goal in a fast-paced contest. Other Waxer tallies came from the sticks of Bobby Fitkin, Jesse Boucher and Robert Burrows. Paul Guthrie provided solid netminding for the boys in blue and made an outstanding kick save with 28 seconds left to preserve the win. Saturday the Waxers are at Markville Mall in a United Way fundraiser from 11:00 to 2:30 before departing by bus to take on the Huntsville Wildcats in their only visit to the north country. [recap]
