Real McCoys celebrate Christmas by breaking Petrolia curse

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

The Petrolia Squires have had the Real McCoys' number all season, besting the Dundas squad in all four matchups leading into their most recent pre-Christmas game. In fact, Petrolia was the only team in the five-team circuit the McCoys had yet to find a solution for.

That ended on December 23. On their way to collecting their third win on Grightmire ice, Dundas raced out to a 3-0 lead in the first 20 minutes and never looked back, scoring seven more times in the final two periods en route to a 10-2 thrashing of Petrolia.

Rob DeCiantis and Mark Jooris were a two-man wrecking crew on the offensive side, combining for a whopping eleven points. DeCiantis led the attack, finishing with a fantastic five-goal performance and adding an assist in the onslaught. Jooris, who with 28 points now finds himself in fifth place in the league scoring race, tallied twice and picked up three helpers.

Jamie Young, Mike Aglor and Brian Palmieri rounded out the McCoys' scoring. All-star defenceman David Bowman was also brilliant, notching four assists. Dave Digironimo saw a rare low shot count through the wire of his mask, as he only needed to make 21 saves for the win.

Even though the festive feel of the season was drifting throughout the building, the spirit of Christmas certainly wasn't shared between the two clubs on the ice. The McCoys and Squires managed to combine for a mindboggling 173 minutes in penalties, which included 22 various misconducts, a number of dismissals and 28 power play opportunities.

The win pushed Dundas even with Petrolia in the standings and only one point short of their next opponent, the Cambridge Hornets, for third place.
