Markham jumped out to a 2-0 lead and eventually defeated the North York Rangers 3-1 to take the decisive game seven in the opening round of the playoffs. Greg Chambers, Lawne Snyder and Jason Young supplied the offense as the Waxers pumped 48 shots at the Rangers goal in an entertaining contest in front of a packed house at Markham Centennial. Jeremy Wenzel turned aside 39 of the 40 shots he faced and came through to lead the Waxers to a clutch victory.

The Waxers struck first when Greg Chambers scored his fifth goal of the series from Jason Fraccaro and Paul Robinson at the five minute mark. Ten minutes later Rob Mazzuca drew the puck back to Lawne Snyder at the point, on a powerplay, and Snyder let go a rocket that no goaltender was going to stop.

The Waxers dominated play in the early part of the second period although the Rangers were able to muster up some scoring opportunities as well. Nonetheless nobody was able to score and the game remained at 2-0 Markham after forty minutes.

The third period saw the game continue to be a display of fine hockey with some excellent offensive moves to create scoring opportunities, some exceptional defensive plays, in particular Jimmy Ball and Lawne Snyder played outstanding games on the blueline. The remainder of the defensive corps of Brent Pollock, Jim Ulcar, Mike Carlesimo, Mike Harding and Alex Stoyan were all major contributors on the blueline in fine defensive display by all this night.

With regulation time winding down the Rangers made the contest interesting when they scored a powerplay goal to halve the lead at 2-1 with four and a half minutes remaining when they finally were able to solve netminder Jeremy Wenzel after he'd made several outstanding saves while the Rangers were playing 5-on-3. Less three minutes later Robert Burrows sent Jason Young streaking up the ice and Young made no mistake to ice the contest and the series.

It somehow seems only fitting that a pair of seniors, Rob Mazzuca (who had an outstanding game and has played some of his best hockey of his career the last few nights) and Lawne Snyder combined for what would be the game winner and series winner. The two other seniors had outstanding games as well, Tom Kotsopoulos (while uncharacteristically absent on the scoresheet played a tremendous game and filled the leadership void when captain Kevin Tompkins went down) and Jeremy Wenzel (who was well, like Jeremy and turned aside 40 of the 41 shots he faced).

Next up are the Division winners, Vaughan Vipers who split the four-game regular season series with Markham at 2 wins apiece. As soon as we have a schedule we'll be sure to publish it in a timely manner.
