OCTOBER 2001

WAXERS LOSE HEARTBREAKER AT THE SAG
Markham and Wexford squared off Sunday in what was possibly the best Junior A hockey game played this season.  The Raiders prevailed 3-1 despite being out shot 41-26, including 17-5 in the final frame.  Jesse Boucher scored the only goal for the Waxers in what was a strong effort by the entire squad.

WAXERS SWEEP HOME AND HOME WITH AJAX
A powerplay goal by Jason Young with 34 seconds left in overtime  was the difference in a 7-6 shoot out victory in Markham Friday night.  The win was the second in a row against the Ajax Axemen.  Also scoring for the Waxers were Ben Cottreau, with two (including the tying goal with 1.64 seconds on the clock), Joey Grasso, Albert Ferrante, Derek Doucette and Mark Menonte. [recap]

WAXERS ADD EXPERIENCED FORWARD
The Markham Waxers are pleased to announce the signing of 20-year old centreman Joey Grasso.  A veteran of the USHL and EJHL leagues in the USA, Grasso is a native of Long Island, New York.  The Waxers look to Grasso to add some needed depth up the middle and help turn a modest one game winning streak in to a march at the top of the standings.

BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN - WAXERS WIN
The Waxers snapped an early season losing skid with a 5-4 victory over Ajax Sunday afternoon.  David Digironimo picked up the win as Markham got goals from Ryan Steane, Michael Fish, Pat Porretta, Ben Cottreau and Mark Mitchell. [recap]

Successful hockey teams are those that find ways to win hockey games. The Markham Waxers wish they could be in that situation.
But in recent days, they've found ways to lose contests. (article)

If a 4-2 loss to the visiting Stouffville Spirit on Friday and 10-2 drubbing
absorbed at the hands of the host St. Michaelšs Buzzers on Sunday represents
the low point of the Provincial Junior A Hockey League campaign for the
Markham Waxers, head coach Russ Herrington would gladly accept it at this
stage in the season. (article)

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE WEEKEND IS OVER 
That is really the only good news for the Waxers as the losing streak stretched to 3 games on the heels of a 5-3 defeat in Vaughan.  Outshooting the Vipers 40-16 did not do the Waxers any good as the home team scored the winning goal with under 2 minutes left and then added an empty netter.  [recap]

WOES CONTINUE AS BUZZERS CURSE STRIKES AGAIN 
The scoreboard sometimes tells a different story than what happened on the ice.  That may have been the case Sunday in St. Mike's as the game was a closer contest than the 10-2 score indicates.  The Buzzers simply capitalized on their chances while the Waxers struggled around both nets.  [recap]

SNATCHING DEFEAT FROM THE JAWS OF VICTORY 
One goal leads seem to be kryptonite to the Waxers, proven once again in a 4-2 loss to Stouffville Friday night. Jesse Boucher and Derek Doucette staked the Waxers to a 2-1 lead entering the third period but the Spirit scored three unanswered goals for the victory.  [recap]

SAME SCRIPT, DIFFERENT ENDING 
For the second time this week, Aurora and Markham played an overtime game.  This time, the game ended in a 4-4 draw on Sunday afternoon.  Ben Cottreau, Pat Porretta, Steve Nobili and Michael Fish scored for the Waxers.  [recap]

WAXERS CALM HURRICANES AND WIN AT HOME 
Home ice was the answer in the second game in consectutive nights as the Waxers topped Newmarket by a 4-2 score Friday night.  Ben Cottreau, Ryan Steane, Patrick Diotte and Jason Duffy had goals and David Digironimo kicked out 30 shots en route to the two points. [recap]

WAXERS NORTHERN TOUR NOW STANDS AT 1 WIN, 1 LOSS 
The Markham Waxers are in the midst of a 5 game Northern Division crossover set in the schedule.  The record is now 1-1 after losing Thursday night in Newmarket, 5-1.  Michael Fish had the lone goal for the Waxers who out shot the Hurricanes 32-22. [recap]

Markham Waxers head coach Russ Herrington was searching for some answers
when his Provincial Junior A Hockey League club took to the Centennial Arena
ice Monday for its game against the Aurora Tigers.[article]

BOUCHER TO MIAMI TO BE A REDHAWK IN 2002 
Leading scorer Jesse Boucher has made a verbal commitment to accept a scholarship to Miami (Ohio) University beginning September 2002.  This is the first in what the Waxers hope to be a number of Division 1 scholarships for this year's squad. [article]

There are times when Markham Waxers head coach Russ Herrington cannot get a
pulse on his Provincial Junior A Hockey League clubs.
Last weekend was one of those which had Herrington scratching his head.

OT WINNER BY BOUCHER TAMES TIGERS 
Markham squared off against Aurora in its first of four meetings this year and came away with a 6-5 overtime victory behind Jesse Boucher's goal just over one minute in to OT.  It was Boucher's second goal of the evening as Travis O'Rourke, Patrick Diotte, Pat Porretta and Ben Cottreau had singles.  David Digironimo picked up his first victory as a Waxer in his first start. [recap]

MARKHAM ADDS VETERAN GOALIE 
The Waxers acquired veteran goaltender David Digironimo from the Bramalea Blues on Monday, October 1.  Digironimo, a 1981 born who has played with the Blues and Streetsville over his two years in the league, is expected to suit up in Monday's game versus Aurora.
