Markham Waxers Game Report

SEPT. 27/2004 (Game 8) P1 P2 P3 OT FINAL
PICKERING PANTHERS 1 1 0 0 2
MARKHAM WAXERS 0 1 1 1 3
A much better effort by the Waxers as they hosted the Pickering Panthers who were looking for revenge after a loss on home ice to Markham the week before. In the end, the game turned in to a goaltending dual between two of the best 1988 born goalies in the province, with the Waxers' Trevor O'Neill stopping 24 shots on his way to the thrilling 3-2 overtime victory.

Pickering opened the scoring late in the first period to make it 1-0 after 20 minutes, a period in which the Waxers held the upper hand on the shot clock, 10-8.  Pickering would up their lead to 2-0 in the opening minutes of the second and it looked like the were heading in to the second intermission with the 2-0 lead.  The Waxers broke the goose egg however before the end of the second, after being stoned cold on numerous chances as they pepppered 15 shots at the Pickering net.  Riley Hill won a race to the puck in the Waxers end and threw the loose puck out in to the neutral zone.  Leiland Gauley swooped in on the puck as it crossed the Pickering blue line, stopped and fed a streaking James Gaulrapp with a beautiful pass to spring a breakaway for Gaulrapp from the blueline.  James made no mistake, beating the goalie with a backhand deke with 2:42 left on the clock.

The third period was more of the same as the Waxers continued to press, looking for the equalizer, only to see chance after chance be thwarted by the Panthers netminder.  In the end, it was the Joel Gaulrapp who was able to solve the stone wall as he fired a hard wrist through a screen directly off a faceoff won by Brandon Rubeo with 1:56 left in regulation to set up the first overtime of the season.

In overtime, O'Neill kept the Panthers at bay, stopping 3 shots in the process, which helped set up the OT heroics of Hill. This time, in a bit of role reversal, Gauley was the one who won a race for a loose puck right in front of the Waxers bench.  He made a cross ice pass to Hill who skated down his off wing lugging the puck.  Just at the top of the circles Hill saw an opening and fired a quick wrist shot around the defenceman and it rang in off the crossbar before the goalie even moved.
