February 2005

WAXERS SEASON COMES TO AN END 
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.  [recap]

MARKHAM WINS ON HOME ICE To STAY ALIVE 
Following the trend of the first three games of the semi-final series with Wexford, the Waxers scored first, never trailed and added a last minute empty net goal to take game 4 by a 4-2 count.  Jeff Fischer stopped 29 shots while Stephen Kapolnas, Shareef Labreche and both James and Joel Gaulrapp scored goals.  [recap]

WAXERS LEFT WITH WIN OR GO HOME SCENARIO 
The Waxers now trail Wexford by a 3 games to nothing situation as the Raiders escaped with a 6-4 victory on home ice in game 3.  A real see-saw battle that saw, what else, Wexford score the final goal in to the empty net in the dying seconds.  [recap]

COMEBACK EFFORT FALLS JUST SHORT IN GAME 2 
After 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.  [recap]

RAIDERS 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 in to the empty net).  Riley Hill scored the lone goal for the Waxers who now travel to Scarborough for games 2 and 3..  [recap]

WAXERS SNAP HOMER TREND TO ELIMINATE PANTHERS 
The Waxers are on the second round after a 5-3 victory on foreign soil eliminated the Pickering Panthers in 6 games.  Five different Waxers scored tonight as Jeff Fischer earned his 4th victory of the series.  Up next for the Waxers is the Wexford Raiders and the South Division Semi Finals.  [recap].

WAXERS SQUEAK OUT GAME 5 VICTORY AT HOME 
The homer 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].

SHE IS ALL TIED UP AT TWO GAMES APIECE 
Old time hockey tonight in Markham as a packed house was entertained to another see-saw battle between the Waxers and visiting Panthers.  In the end, Markham won by a 6-3 score to even the best of seven series 2-2 as the series now becomes a best of three affair.  [recap].

LAST MINUTE GOAL DEFEATS WAXERS IN GAME 3 
The series keeps getting better between Markham and Pickering, as game 3 was not decided until a Panther goal with 16 seconds left in regulation.  The 5-4 victory keeps the homer trend alive as the scene shifts back to Markham for games 4 and 5. [recap].

SAME SCORE, DIFFERENT OUTCOME IN GAME 2 
For the second straight game to open the series, the team that deserved to win did as the Pickering Panthers tied up the first round best of seven at 1-1 after a 4-2 victory on home ice in game 2.  Josh Jacobs and Daniel Torres scored for Markham as the New Year Saturday night frustrations continue for the Waxers. [recap].

WAXERS STRIKE FIRST BLOOD WITH 4-2 VICTORY 
In what 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 for games 2 (Saturday) and 3 (Wednesday). [recap].

FIRST ROUND NOW FULLY SCHEDULED 
Markham and Pickering have confirmed the dates of their opening Round 1 Playoff series.  The best of seven affair will open up Friday, February 11 in Markham at 7:30 pm.  Game two is 24 hours later, this time in Pickering.  Game 3 is back in Pickering with game 4 and 5 in Markham.  The final 4 games are all back-to-back-to-back-to-back. 

NORTH YORK AND MARKHAM TIE ONE ON - UP NEXT THE PLAYOFFS 
Markham played their final regular season game of the season and were able to move up to 4th place thanks to earning a single point in a 3-3 tie with North York.  This sets up a first round match up with Pickering as the playoffs begin next week. [recap]

ST MICHAEL'S RUINS GRADUATE APPRECIATION NIGHT 
Markham hosted their 6th Annual Graduate Appreciation Night in their final regular season home game on Friday, only to see the visiting Buzzers spoil the celebration as they skated away with a 7-6 victory.  A valiant comeback by the Waxers went for naught and sets up a huge encounter Sunday against North York as spots 3 to 5 in South Division are still undetermined.
