Try as they
might, the Markham Waxers could just not get a victory in Wexford, as a
4-3 defeat sees their season come to an end. Team Captain Derrell
Levy scored twice in his final Jr A hockey game as Markham, despite
out shooting the Raiders 29-20, go down 4 games to 1 in the semi-finals.

and both James and Joel
Gaulrapp scored goals.

saw, what else, Wexford score the final goal in to the empty net in the
EFFORT FALLS JUST SHORT IN GAME 2
trailing 3-0 midway through the game and 4-1 heading into the third
period, the Waxers staged a comeback of sorts, inching closer to 4-3
thanks to Kyle O'Boyle's first Jr A
goal. They could not get the equalizer and Wexford added two empty
net goals in the final minute to skate away 6-3.
DRAW FIRST BLOOD IN ROUND 2
It was not
the way Markham wanted to start the second round as the visiting Wexford
Raiders were able to steal the opener by a 3-1 score (the last goal being

series continued tonight as the Waxers, on home ice for the second
straight night, squeaked out a 5-3 victory to take a 3-2 lead over
Pickering in the first round matchup. Two third period goals by Josh
Jacobs proved to be exactly what the doctor ordered as Chris
Korte, Daniel Torres and an
empty netter by James Gaulrapp
accounted for the other scoring. [recap].
IS ALL TIED UP AT TWO GAMES APIECE

see-saw battle between the Waxers and visiting Panthers. In the end,

series now becomes a best of three affair. [recap].
MINUTE GOAL DEFEATS WAXERS IN GAME 3

for the Waxers. [recap].
STRIKE FIRST BLOOD WITH 4-2 VICTORY
should be an indication of what the first round match up will provide for
fans, the Waxers and Panthers teamed up for an excellent exhibition of
playoff hockey in game 1 which resulted in a 4-2 Markham victory. Daniel
Torres led the way with two goals while Brett
Molnar and Josh Jacobs had
singles. Jeff Fischer was solid
in net stopping 33 shots for the win. The scene shifts to Pickering
