East Division Week in Review: Week 2
Game of the Week Review: Toronto Lakeshore Patriots at Cobourg Cougars
The Toronto Lakeshore made the trip down to the Cobourg Community Centre to take on the cougars on a Monday night affair that saw its fair amount of fireworks. A high scoring affair that saw nine goals scored and 61 shots fired at the cages. The 1st period saw the Cougars jump out to an early lead with goals from Stuart King and Liam Grande respectively. The Patriots came out gunning in the 2nd period with two quick goals to close the gap only to have Cobourg to retake the lead at 7:47 from a Theo Lewis marker. The 3rd period started out with a Kenzie Smith goal at 2:30, before Toronto would tie up the game with tallies from Kevin Shier and Rory Bell. Tensions would rise as the teams went into Overtime at the Cobourg Community Centre. The period would drag on before Marcus Rose would become the OT hero for the Patriots at 4:51 in the extra period. A high intensity game that was back and forth and had fans up and down in their seats. TLP 5-4 Cobourg Cougars.
Game of the Week Preview: Pickering Panthers at Trenton Goldenhawks
One of the skirmishes of the Governors Showcase in Oakville, that will see two clubs that are off to hot starts. Trenton (4-1) and Pickering (3-1-2) are both second in their divisions. Both are in your face type of teams with aggressive fore checking systems. Danny Liscio and Tyler Mayea should be players to watch for Trenton in the games as both are flying. For the Panthers, Brodie Tutton is one of the top scorers in the league and shouldn’t be taken lightly by any team.
