Markham Waxers Game Report

OCT. 17/2004 (Game 15) P1 P2 P3 OT FINAL
ST MICHAEL'S BUZZERS 1 0 2 - 3
MARKHAM WAXERS 2 1 2 - 5
For the first time since last February, the Waxers got a chance to avenge a playoff defeat at the hands of St Michael's and the short staffed Waxers walked out of the Buzzerdome with 2 points behind a 35 save night by goaltender  Trevor O'Neill.  Markham won for the 12th time this season and the 8th time in a row to continue to sit in second place in the tight South Division race.

Playing with only 4 regular defencemen and starting the game with 2 regular forwards in the stands, the Waxers then lost Riley Hill to injury early in the game to cut the numbers even more.  Bantam callup Cody Hodgson played well in his OPJAHL debut. After a tentative start, in which the Buzzers scored a powerplay goal to open the scoring, the Waxers took control of the game scoring twice in the final 6 minutes to grab a lead they would not relinquish.  The Waxers tied the game while shorthanded when Brett Molnar threw the puck up the ice and Brandon Fackey deflected it around the defenceman and then bore in on net, deking the goalie for the 1-1 tie.  Markham grabbed the lead with 0:36 left on the clock when Chris Korte kept the puck in at the St Michael's blueline and Brandon Rubeo's shot from the boards was redirected in to the net by Joel Gaulrapp, his first of two on the night.

The second saw the Waxers build on their lead scoring the only goal of the period.  After O'Neill stopped a shorthanded breakaway by the Buzzers, the Waxers brought the puck right up the ice and Rubeo found Josh Jacobs streaking thorough the neutral zone.  Jacobs dropped the puck to Nathan Morris at the top of the circles and Morris squeezed the puck between the legs of the Buzzers goalie for a 3-1 lead after two periods.

St Michael's controlled the play to open the third period and put a small scare in the Waxers when the not only fired the first 8 shots of the period, but scored to make it 3-2 just 4:23 in to the period.  Markham regained their composure, and the two goal lead, minutes later when Yiorgo Christodoulou intercepted an errant clearing attempt and snuck in untouched to roof a wrist shot over the glove for the 4-2 lead.  The furious end to end action continued and the Buzzers looked to make it an exciting finish when the scored their third goal with 2:12 left on the clock.  The Waxers answered right back, just 50 seconds later as James Gaulrapp and Rubeo teamed up to spring Joel Gaulrapp on a semi-breakaway and he made no mistake in salting away the victory with a backhand deke..
