Markham Waxers Game Report

JAN. 31/2005 (Game 47) P1 P2 P3 OT FINAL
VAUGHAN VIPERS 1 1 0 - 2
MARKHAM WAXERS 2 1 1 - 4

Rebounding from a tough loss in Pickering two days earlier, the Waxers played an efficient game against Vaughan and led by Daniel Torres' two goals, skated away with their 30th win of the season thanks to a 4-2 victory.  That marks the second time in three years the Waxers have reached the 30 win plateau after going almost 2 decades without doing so.  

The win was also a major milestone for Head Coach Russ Herrington.  The win was his 250th Regular Season victory as a Head Coach, combining his 9 year bench career between Thornhill (Metro League) and Markham (Provincial League).

The Vipers started off well and opened the scoring at the 7:49 mark of the first.  That seemed to energize the Waxers who held the majority of the play the rest of the way in the first and were rewarded by scoring twice in the final 4 minutes of the opening period.  Torres bagged his first with 3:57 left on the clock when after some strong forechecking by Brandon Rubeo and Joel Gaulrapp, Torres fired home a quick shot from the high slot for his 4th of the season.  David Kostuch bagged his 20th of the year in the dying seconds of the first when he worked a perfect give-n-go with David Lyall on a 2-on-2 rush to redirect the puck high in to the top of the net for the lead which the Waxers would never relinquish.

Torres banged home the eventual winning goal early in the second as he, Rubeo and Gaulrapp went in on a 3-on-2 rush and left with the Waxers 3rd goal.  Vaughan scored in the final minute of the period to make it 3-2 heading in to the third period.

Markham was able to salt away the victory when they scored their insurance marker with 6:22 left on the clock.  After a Mick Ralph point shot, Rubeo poked the rebound out in front to Leiland Gauley and he made no mistake driving home his 9th of the year.  Trevor O'Neill stood strong in the net, stopping 25 shots for his 21st victory.
