Markham Waxers and Wexford Raiders opened their
second round, South Division Semi-Final series with a game that can be best
described as a feeling-each-other-out manner, ending in a Raider 3-1 victory as
they scored an empty net goal with just 0:07 left on the clock.Not much excitement during the game although
Jeff Fischer and his Wexford counterpart did provide solid goaltending
throughout, as Markham
out shot Wexford 35-31.
opened the scoring with
left in the first period and then upped their lead to 2-0 with a shorthanded

second period powerplay, with assists to Brett
Molnar and David Kostuch.The empty netter completed the scoring and iced the victory for the
Raiders who take a 1-0 series lead with games 2 and 3 in Scarborough.
