The Fly­ers knocked off the Ma­roons 4-1 on Thurs­day to take sole posses­sion of sec­ond place in the Greater On­tario Ju­nior Hockey League’s Western Con­fer­ence.

The Ma­roons are two points back in third place.

The teams were score­less through two pe­ri­ods, but the Fly­ers’ of­fence came to life in the third be­fore 809 fans at the High­bury Canco Arena.

The Fly­ers im­proved to 6-0-0-0 since ac­quir­ing for­wards Josh King and Thomas Michaud from the Ma­roons on Nov. 14 in ex­change for for­wards Grif­fin Robin­son and Mad­dux Ry­chel.

They’ve won seven straight over­all.

The Ma­roons, mean­while, are 3-4-0-1 since the trade.

Zach Tay­lor of the Fly­ers broke the score­less tie at 4:02 of the third pe­riod, but Justin Badour replied for the Ma­roons at the eight­minute mark.

The Ma­roons couldn’t get an­other shot past Fly­ers net­min­der Zach Borgiel, who made 30 saves.

Fly­ers cap­tain Levi Te­trault of Pain Court scored the win­ning goal against his former team at 13:38.

Michael An­drews fol­lowed with an in­sur­ance goal at 15:35. Ryan Gag­nier scored at 17:45.

All four play­ers in the big trade were held off the score­sheet.

Ma­roons goalie Adam Har­ris made 36 saves.

The Ma­roons re­turn to ac­tion Sun­day when the first-place Lon­don Na­tion­als (19-5-0-1) visit Chatham Me­mo­rial Arena at 7 p.m.

The Na­tion­als are eight points ahead of the Ma­roons (14-7-0-3). Te­trault stars for Fly­ers

Te­trault, 20, was the Oc­to­ber de­fen­sive player of the month in the Western Con­fer­ence.

Te­trault has four goals and 16 as­sists in 24 games. He’s sec­ond in scor­ing among Western Con­fer­ence de­fence­men.

He split last sea­son be­tween the Fly­ers and Brant­ford 99ers after play­ing the pre­vi­ous two sea­sons with the Guelph Storm in the On­tario Hockey League.
