the second time in 3 days, the Waxers travelled down the 401 to Durham Region
and left with a convincing victory, this time defeating the Oshawa Legionaires
by an 8-1 score. Riley Hill led the
way with his first ever Jr A Hat Trick and Trevor
O'Neill picked up his 18th victory of the season stopping 17 shots.
got on the board twice in the opening half of the first period, taking a 2-0
lead in to the first intermission after outshooting Oshawa by a 12-6 count.
David Kostuch continued his
torrid pace scoring Markham first goal stuffing home the rebound after James
Gaulrapp had set up brother Joel
in the slot for a quick shot. Hill then scored the eventual game winner,
his first on the evening, after being fed by Stephen
Kapolnas in behind the Oshawa defence for a semi-breakaway.
second period saw the Waxers completely blow the game open, scoring five times
and getting the lead to 6-0 before Oshawa got on the board. James
Gaulrapp banged home a loose puck just 27 seconds in to the period for a 3-0
lead (assists to Joel and Kostuch). Hill then completed his hat trick,
scoring both shorthanded and on the powerplay before the period was five
minutes old. Josh Jacobs
assisted on both goals while Nathaniel
Brooks picked up the second assist on the powerplay marker. Hill
returned the favour to Jacobs, feeding him with a goal mouth pass for Jacobs
12th of the season after a nice cycle of the puck by Shareef
Labreche. Joel Gaulrapp then finished a pretty 3 way passing play
between himself, James and Kostuch while on the powerplay for the 7-1 lead
after two periods.
the third, the Waxers finished the scoring with a late powerplay goal when Brandon
Rubeo sprung linemates Yiorgo
Christodoulou and Leiland
Gauley on a 2-on-1 rush which Gauley finished off, one-timing a
Christodoulou pass in the slot.
