DECEMBER 18, 2002

Liam Bowen has been a "rock" for the Waxers in his comeback year...FROM THE DESK OF MIKE HAYAKAWA..
DECEMBER 11, 2002

It's been three years since Liam Bowen last played in the Provincial Junior A Hockey League. But judging by the way the 20-year-old Markham resident has been performing this season in his second tour of duty in the league and as a first-year member of the Markham Waxers, itıs as though he hasn't missed a beat.

WAXERS OUTSCORE RATTLERS IN LESS THAN INTENSE BATTLE OF CROSS-TOWN "RIVALS"
The Waxers outscored the Rattlers 7-4 in a contest that featured a lot of one-way hockey and might have lulled an observer to sleep at times. Nevertheless when all was said and done the blue and white took their two points as they prepare for a three-game weekend starting with the "Teddy Toss" night in Markham Friday night when they host the Axemen, game time is 8:00pm. [recap]

RIVALS TIE ONCE AGAIN IN A BACK-AND-FORTH SLOPPY AFFAIR
Wexford and Markham played to a draw (4-4) for the second consecutive time after the clubs exchanged road victories in their first two meetings. A short Waxer bench may have contributed some to the outcome or perhaps a night that sees the blue and white not win be a disappointment has now become the norm. [recap]

WAXERS PROMOTE PLAYERS TO THE ONTARIO HOCKEY LEAGUEDavid Lyall has been called up by Sarnia for today's game against the Kitchener Rangers.
We told you all a few weeks back that Michael Pain had been called up by the Saginaw Spirit, well today another OHL team came calling for re-enforcements. The Sarnia Sting have called up defenseman David Lyall for tonight's match-up against the Kitchener Rangers.  On the Pain front, Saginaw has been so impressed with his play that they have decided to sign Pain for the remainder of the season.  The Waxers wish Mike and David the best of luck in the "O"!

WAXERS LEAVE WILDCAT COUNTRY WITH ANOTHER "W" TO MAINTAIN TOP-SPOT IN VERY TIGHT DIVISION RACE
The Waxers traveled to Huntsville for the first time this year, the first of two meetings between the clubs this season (Huntsville pays a visit to Markham Dec. 20th) and the tough-luck and still winless Wildcats fell to the Waxers 9-2. The win also propels the Waxers once again into sole possession of first place as St. Mike's and North York played to a draw (the Waxers have a game in hand on the Buzzers). [recap]

DECEMBER 4, 2002

When the Markham Waxers began their Provincial Junior A Hockey League regular season in early September, head coach Russ Herrington had expectations his team would exhibit gradual improvement throughout the year. With the regular season a few games past the halfway mark, you will get little if any complaints from the Waxers' coaching staff of the effort put fourth by the team. [article]

DECEMBER 1, 2002

For Michael Barrett, November 29 will be a homecoming of sorts when he steps onto the Centennial Arena ice surface. After labouring five years in the Ontario Hockey League, the 20-year-old Markham native will be coming home after the Markham Waxers acquired his playing rights on Tuesday after he cleared OHL waivers. [article]

WAXERS REBOUND TO POUND RANGERS
