Markham Waxers Game Report

DEC. 17/2004 (Game 34) P1 P2 P3 OT FINAL
PICKERING PANTHERS 2 1 1 - 4
MARKHAM WAXERS 2 2 2 - 6
It took a while for the Waxers to get their legs on what was the Third Annual Teddy Bear Toss, but Markham was able to withstand a terrific start by the visiting Panthers and slowly take over the game en route to a 6-4 victory.  Joel Gaulrapp led the way with two goals on the evening while David Kostuch racked up 4 points.

Early on, it looked like the Waxers might disappoint the biggest regular season crowd in years, as it was the Panthers who came out raring to go and dominated the play for the opening minutes of the game.  But leave it to the Charitable Spirit of Josh Jacobs to whip the crowd in to a frenzy and unleash the Teddy Bear Toss for the second consecutive year, as he potted a powerplay marker (assisted by Nathaniel Brooks and Leiland Gauley) at the 8:00 minute mark to make it 1-0.  The crowd littered the ice with over 300 stuffed animals, and members of the Minor Waxers Tyke, Novice AE and Novice AAA came out on to the ice and cleaned up the donations.  The break did not slow down the Panthers however, as they scored the next two goals, just 34 seconds apart to take a 2-1 lead midway through the period.  Markham seemed to wake up at that point and started to gain some momentum, and then capitalized on another powerplay late in the period to send it to the intermission 2-2. David Kostuch and James Gaulrapp did most of the work down low, and the play was finished off by Stephen Kapolnas who snuck in off the point to stuff home his first goal as a Waxer.

The second period saw the Waxers turn the tide thanks to some great penalty killing during the middle portion of the period, after they had fallen behind earlier in the period 3-2 on a Panther powerplay goal.  It took less than  3 minutes for the Waxers to tie it 3-3 when Joel Gaulrapp banged home a powerplay goal after Jacobs and Brandon Rubeo’s initial shots were stopped.  After killing off a two man advantage, the Waxers seized control of the game, and secured the lead for good with a last minute goal by Kostuch.  Brandon Fackey and Joel Gaulrapp did the work down low and then Kostuch walked out in front and waited until the goaltender went down and then roofed the puck with 43 seconds left in the period.

Markham built the lead to 5-3 midway through the third period when Joel Gaulrapp received a pass from brother James just inside the blueline and swooped in untouched to beat the goalie with a pretty deke (Kostuch picked up the second assist).   Pickering inched back a few minutes later but Jacobs finished the scoring on the evening when Joel Gaulrapp blocked a shot in the Waxers end and Kostuch sprung Jacobs for the breakaway to make the final 6-4.  Jeff Fischer stopped 25 shots for the victory.
