Revenge is best served with a punctuation mark! The Waterloo Siskins only loss this season was at the hands of the Brampton Bombers the previous weekend in Brampton. The Siskins wanted to make a statement about how they felt about the loss and Siskins fans were entertained with a barrage of offence as 8 players combined for 10 goals in a convincing 10-2 win Sunday afternoon in Waterloo.
Waterloo Siskins forward ALEX LYCETTE scored what ended up to be the game winner with a perfect shot past Bombers goalie OWEN PORTER half way through the game (Photo #1 of Oct 7, 2018 Album). Porter was outstanding in net for the Bombers despite letting in 5 goals on 24 shots before being relieved of his duties. The Siskins dominated the Bombers in the first period but PORTER kept the game scoreless through 20 minutes.
There were a total of 8 goal scorers for the Siskins in the win. The line of Sam Cherry, Owen Lane and Christian Taylor scored 5 of the 10 Siskins goals. Waterloo, Ontario native SAM CHERRY had a big day with 5 points (2 G and 3 A) including a power play tally late in the second period (Photo #2 of Oct 7, 2018 Album). The Siskins outshot Brampton 48-30 in the match and currently sit in FIRST PLACE in the competitive GOJHL Mid-West Conference.
Waterloo Siskins net minder MACHUS TURNER improved his record to 4-0 on the season turning aside 28 of 30 shots he faced. Turner made several spectacular saves in the third period robbing Bomber forwards with “split saves” leaving the opposition shaking their heads with hands raised as if the answer to their question lay somewhere in the rafters of the Recreation Complex (Photo #3 of Oct 7, 2018 Album).
The Siskins visited the Brantford Saturday night for the first time this season pulling out a 4-3 win with two unanswered third period goals. Waterloo outshot Brantford 49-20 but was minus 2 on special teams. Siskins Forward CURTIS RAWN scored the winner at 9:43 of the 3rd frame.
The Siskins play at 1:30 at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Centre this Sunday hosting the Brantford 99rs
