Markham Waxers News Items

SEPTEMBER 2001

ONE OF THOSE NIGHTS AS THE BUZZERS HAMMER MARKHAM  
The Waxers history of trouble against St. Mike's held form Saturday night when the visitors hammered the home squad 9-1.  A close game through 39 minutes before the Buzzers scored 7 goals in the last 21 minutes.  Albert Ferrante had the only goal, the lone bright spot in an embarrassing effort.

WAXERS EVEN THE SCORE WITH THORNHILL  
Markham was able to exact some revenge for last weeks defeat as they handled the Rattlers 5-2.  Jesse Boucher lead the way with 2 goals while Ben Cottreau, Mark Menonte and Pat Porretta had singles. [recap]

WAXERS LOSE TWICE IN 14 HOURS  
Two games, fourteen hours, zero points.  The Waxers lost Saturday night 5-4 in Thornhill and then Sunday morning in College Weekend to Milton, 6-4 (the final goal being an empty netter).  Not exactly the weekend that everyone had in mind.  [Thornhill recap]  [Milton recap]

MARKHAM BACK IN THE WIN COLUMN  
The Waxers wasted no time in getting back to the win column with a convincing 8-1 victory over Oshawa.  Markham survived a tense first period with a 1-0 lead and then blew it open in the second.  Mark Menonte had 2 goals, as Jesse Boucher, Ryan Steane, Jason Duffy, Ben Cottreau, Albert Ferrante and Pat Porretta each scored once.  Nick Kemp's shutout bid was ended with just over 1 minute left in the game.  [recap]

WAXERS SUFFER FIRST LOSS  
There  was a repeat of last year's second round of the playoffs as the visiting Wexford Raiders met the Waxers Monday night.  An intense, back and forth game ensued as the Raiders came out on top 7-6 in overtime.  Jesse Boucher continued his hot hand notching his second hat trick in just 3 games this season. [recap]

WAXERS WIN SECOND STRAIGHT  
The Waxers continued where they left off Friday night as they won for the second time in consecutive days, 8-1 over the visiting Vaughan Vipers.  Ryan Steane and Mark Menonte lead the way with 2 goals each as Kevin Sit earned his first Jr A victory. [recap]

CHANGES TO WAXERS STAFF 
The Markham Waxers coaching and training staff is going to look a little different than first anticipated for the upcoming season.  Goaltender Specialist Mike McIntyre has had to resign from the position after accepting a promotion that sees him relocate to work in New York City effective September 1, 2001.  Athletic Therapist Phil Voutier has been hired by the Mississauga IceDogs of the OHL.  In Phil's place, the Waxers have hired Nick Kovachev. 

WAXERS FINISH PRESEASON WITH A TIE 
Markham and Thornhill met again Saturday night and really settled nothing asd they battled to a 5-5 draw in the Rattlers' home den.  Much like Thursday night's game, the pace was quick and the game was exciting right down to the final buzzer. [recap]

WAXERS COLLECT FIRST PRESEASON WIN 
The Markham Waxers made it in to the preseason win column on Thursday night when they defeated Thornhill 4-2.  A fast paced, hard hitting game saw the Waxers and Rattlers play a more traditional game, as the score indicates. A big change after the lacrosse/football scores of the first two preseason games. [recap]
