Scoring surges in Monday night hockey as Drayton, Community record wins


A lone goal in the first period by Pat Landman gave Missionary the early lead and began what looked like a low-scoring game. However a rash of goals in the next two periods kept the scoreboard active.

Missionary responded with a pair of goals to tie the game back up. Zack Leslie scored and set up Matt Burnett for the tying goal. Assists also went to Brady Franklin, Burnett and Devin McGuire.

Floradale snuck in one more goal to keep the lead after two periods. Josh Brohman scored the goal, assisted by Greg Martin.

Corey Wideman padded the Floradale lead with an unassisted goal to start the third.

Zack Leslie took a pass from Scott Vandepas and scored a goal to keep Missionary close.

However, Gary Martin sniped a shot to give Floradale the edge again, assisted by Corey Wideman and Tim Martin.

With just a couple minutes left in the game Missionary stormed back. Zack Franklin scored in the final minutes to bring the team within one. And a rush at the net gave Zack Leslie his hat trick and the tying goal with one second left on the clock.


After a scoreless first period, Community took the lead with the only goal in the second. Tony Martin ripped the puck for the goal, assisted by Colin Snyder and Kevin Gingrich.

It was five-goal third period that secured the win for Community.
