Markham Waxers Game Report

OCT. 21/2001 (Game 17) P1 P2 P3 OT FINAL
AJAX AXEMEN 1 0 3 0 4
MARKHAM WAXERS 2 0 3 0 5
Markham got back in the win column for the first time in 5 games as they defeated the Ajax Axemen 5-4 in the first meeting between the two this season.  The game saw the Waxers of September reappear and featured commitment to the game plan and strong execution for the entire 60 minutes.

Markham struck early in the first when Ryan Steane scored off a friendly carom just 1:09 in to the contest.  The Waxers extended the lead to 2-0 when Paul Robinson fed Michael Fish on a 3-on-2 and Fish buried a wrister for a power play marker.  Ajax would cut the lead in half before the period ended.

After a scoreless second period, the Waxers regained the two goal lead less than two minutes in to the third.  Pat Porretta won the draw in the offensive end, Jason Duffy cycled the puck to Robinson who made a pretty behind-the-back pass to Porretta in front for the 3-1 lead.  Ajax would make it 3-2 before the Waxers struck again, just 49 seconds after the Axemen goal.  Jason Young picked up an errant pass in the neutral zone and slowing the play up waited for Ben Cottreau to get open.  Young threw the pass across the ice just as Cottreau was tripped up.  Cottreau, sliding on his knees, corralled the puck and deked the goalie to his backhand in one motion and scored he Waxers fourth goal.  Again, Ajax cut in to the lead and again the Waxers regained the two goal advantage.  This time, with just under 5 minutes left, Fish found Mark Mitchell in the high slot and his quick wrist shot snuck in for his first goal of the year and the game winner.  Ajax would add their fourth goal with time running down and the goaltender on the bench.
