Koste­lan­sky col­lects 3 points as Cochrane tops Es­panola

The Mid-North Monitor - - Sports -

Cochrane, ont. – The Cochrane Crunch used the strength of a three­goal third pe­riod to send them on their way to an even­tual 6-1 tri­umph over the Es­panola Ex­press Fri­day night in a north­ern on­tario Ju­nior hockey league match-up at Tim hor­ton Event Cen­tre.

mitchell booth got the home side go­ing as he notched his first NOJHL goal near the six-minute mark of the first pe­riod to put Cochrane up early dur­ing a man ad­van­tage op­por­tu­nity.

TJ de­laney’s fifth of the cam­paign added to the Crunch cush­ion mid­way through the stanza while Kyle herb­ster’s ef­fort with

22 sec­onds re­main­ing in the frame made it 3-0 after one.

Cochrane got one more

10:09 into the mid­dle stanza when booth added an­other to put the Crunch up by four head­ing into the fi­nal pe­riod.

In the third, Jack­son hea­cock got Es­panola on the board with 6:41 re­main­ing as he picked up his first NOJHL tally while putting an end to Cochrane net­min­der Josh bar­rett’s shutout bid in the process.

ni­co­las Flan­ders an­swered that how­ever, 27 sec­onds later, for the Crunch to go with an ear­lier as­sist when he ran a mod­est point streak to four along the way.

skat­ing in his sec­ond game with the club, new­comer laramie Koste­lan­sky rounded out the scor­ing with his ini­tial league marker in the late go­ing to cap off a per­sonal three­p­oint night for Cochrane.

Caleb dol­man also chipped in with a pair of as­sists to aid the Crunch cause.

bar­rett fin­ished with 26 stops to record the vic­tory for Cochrane while Ja­cob hutch­ings faced 47 shots in de­feat for the Ex­press.
