Markham Waxers Game Report

OCT. 1/2001 (Game 9) P1 P2 P3 OT FINAL
AURORA TIGERS 2 1 2 0 5
MARKHAM WAXERS 1 2 2 1 6
The Markham Waxers, on the strength of an OT winner from Jesse Boucher, took game one of a four game season series from the visiting Tigers 6-5.  Newcomer David Digironimo earned the win in net for the Waxers stopping 31 shots.

Markham got on the board first just over 3 minutes in to the game when Travis O'Rourke scored his first Jr A goal.  Albert Ferrante found O'Rourke streaking on the left side in the neutral zone and O'Rourke did the rest, beating the defenseman wide and cutting hard to the net stuffing home the puck for the 1-0 lead.  Aurora would score twice in the period to take a 2-1 lead in to the middle period.

Aurora stretched their lead to 3-1 and that seemed to energize the Waxers who took over the period out shooting the Tigers 21-7.  Boucher scored his first of the evening, a power play marker, to cut the lead to 3-2.  Ryan Steane and Mark Menonte earned assists.  Then, while short handed, Patrick Diotte intercepted a pass in the neutral zone and started the play back moving the puck quickly to Jason Duffy and then getting it back.  The Aurora defenseman stumbled and Diotte made a quick pass to Menonte for the 2-on-0.  Menonte faked the shot and passed back to Diotte who slid the puck home for his first of the year.  The period ended 3-3.

The Waxers struck early in the third to take the lead 4-3 with just under 3 minutes elapsed.  Menonte and Steve Nobili cycled the puck down low and when Nobili stepped out of the corner his centering pass was blocked but the puck went right to the stick of Ben Cottreau.  He made no mistake roofing the puck over the out of position goalie.  Aurora tied the game with 2:04 left on the clock but the Waxers responded 32 seconds later to reclaim the lead.  Paul Robinson started the play out of the Waxer end feeding Duffy on the wing during the rush.  Duffy went hard to the net, dropped the puck to Robinson ad he redirected it to Pat Porretta who deposited in to the wide open side to recapture the lead.  The Tigers pulled their goalie for an extra attacker and after a bad clearing attempt, they tied the score with just 3 seconds on the clock.

That set up the overtime heroics of Boucher who scored just 1:39 in to the fourth period.  After winning the draw, Nobili circled the net and found Boucher wide open in the slot.  Boucher's quick wrister hit the iron and went in to end the game.

The same two teams face off in the Tigers' den on Sunday afternoon during this all-North Division week for the Waxers.
