Ma­roons win in over­time

The Chatham Daily News - - OPINION -

Ex-Stars for­ward Kyle Fisher re­turned to St. Thomas to haunt his for­mer team Fri­day.

Fisher scored 24 sec­onds into the sec­ond over­time as the Chatham Ma­roons beat the Stars 3-2 be­fore 304 fans at the Joe Thorn­ton Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

Fisher fin­ished with two goals as the Ma­roons ex­tended their win­ning streak to six games. That’s the long­est ac­tive streak in the Greater On­tario Ju­nior Hockey League.

Thomas Michaud also scored for the Ma­roons (11-2-0-2), who are in sec­ond place in the West­ern Con­fer­ence.

Ma­roons goalie Adam Har­ris made 28 saves. An­thony Hur­tubise of the Stars made 30.

Fisher and Michaud scored goals 2:33 apart early in the sec­ond pe­riod for a 2-0 lead.

Rus­sell Old­ham scored the Stars’ first goal on a power play late in the frame.

Dar­ren Beat­tie forced over­time by scor­ing with 11 sec­onds left in the third pe­riod and Hur­tubise on the bench for an ex­tra skater. Op­er­a­tion Cover-Up

The Ma­roons and the ChathamKent Sal­va­tion Army ask fans to do­nate gen­tly used win­ter coats at Sun­day’s game for the an­nual Op­er­a­tion Cover-Up coat drive.

“Es­pe­cially for the chil­dren and men’s plus sizes,” Sal­va­tion Army cap­tain Karen Hol­land said in a state­ment. “Those seem to be the ones that we don’t get as many of.”

Fans mak­ing a do­na­tion can en­ter a draw for a Cal­gary Flames cap au­to­graphed by T.J. Brodie and get a chance to play Beat the Goalie.

The Ma­roons will play the St. Marys Lin­colns at 7 p.m. at Chatham Memo­rial Arena. Van­denBoorn scores two

Nolan Van­denBoorn scored twice for the Dres­den Kings in a 6-2 loss to the Amher­st­burg Ad­mi­rals on Fri­day in the Pro­vin­cial Ju­nior Hockey League.

The Ad­mi­rals scored five unan­swered goals – two in the sec­ond pe­riod and three in the third – for a come­back win be­fore 245 fans at Lambton-Kent Memo­rial Arena in Dres­den.

Kings goalie Brett Brochu made 29 saves. Ben Larder of the Ad­mi­rals made 39.

Van­denBoorn’s sec­ond goal put the Kings ahead 2-1 at 7:55 of the sec­ond pe­riod.

Cory Burns had a hat trick for the Ad­mi­rals. Bro­den Me­loche, Cole Welsh and An­drew Clark also scored.

The Kings (13-3-0-1) are sec­ond in the Sto­bbs Divi­sion with 27 points, four be­hind the Es­sex 73’s (14-2-0-3).

The 73’s beat the Lakeshore Cana­di­ens 4-1 on Fri­day. Cana­di­ens goalie Nolan Hakr of Chatham made 17 saves.
