Markham Waxers Game Report

OCT. 15/2004 (Game 14) P1 P2 P3 OT FINAL
THORNHILL THUNDERBIRDS 1 0 0 - 1
MARKHAM WAXERS 1 2 1 - 4
The Waxers and visiting cross-town rival Thornhill Thunderbirds played their second game of the year and the Waxers have evened the season series at one win a piece after a solid 4-1 victory in a game that boiled over in the third period.  The Waxers never trailed in this game as they opened the scoring in the first and then scored twice in the second to blow it open for good.

In the first period, when the two teams each fired ten shots on net, the Waxers were the first to capitalize, scoring at the 6:49 mark.  After Yiorgo Christodoulou blocked a shot in the Waxers end, Chris Korte picked up the puck and head manned it to Joel Gaulrapp who streaked in on a 2-0 breakaway with Derrell Levy.  As they approached the Thunderbird net, Gaulrapp slid the puck over to Levy who one-timed the pass in to the net for the 1-0 lead.  Thornhill would tie the game on a powerplay marker later in the first to send it to the intermission 1-1.

Markham scored the only two goals of the second period as they out shot Thornhill by a 13-10 margin.  Just under 6 minutes in to the frame, as the Waxers were finishing a penalty kill, Nathan Morris received a pass from Joel Gaulrapp and then found Brett Molnar sneaking in behind the Thornhill defence for a breakaway  Molnar made no mistake with his forehand deke to score what would become the game winning goal.  The, with just over 5 minutes left on the clock, the Waxers capitalized on the powerplay to make the score 3-1 after forty minutes.  After the Thunderbirds iced the puck, goaltender Trevor O'Neill set the puck for Mick Ralph behind the net.  Ralph skated all the way up the ice and as he slipped behind the Thunderbirds net, he centered the puck to Josh Jacobs alone in the slot and Jacobs slammed the puck past the goaltender for the extra strength goal.

The third period, outside of the shenanigans mid way through, was controlled by the Waxers who limited Thornhill to 8 shots while firing 12 of their own at the Thornhill net.  Markham upped the lead to 4-1 with an early powerplay marker, one set up by David Kostuch's strong forecheck, and finished off when Molnar deflected Ralph's point shot for his second of the evening.  O'Neill was solid, and spectatcular at times, in stopping 27 shots for the victory, and also picked up his first Jr A point in the process..
