Beverly Novice Bandits just one win away from league playoffs

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

The #1 Beverly Novice squad has stolen into first place, with just two weeks to go in the regular season.

With a 16-0 record and one game remaining, the squad is in a good position heading into the playoffs.

Despite a busy eight-day schedule, the Bandits swept all five of their games, beating Twin Centre #2 4-1, Twin Centre #1 8-3, Embro 4-3, Ayr #3, 8-0 and Twin Centre 2-1.

Nelson Coles netted the game-winning goal in the close Embro game, preserving the Bandits' perfect record.

The last game of the series, against the tough Twin Centre team, was the Bandits' tightest matchup of the season.

Twin Centre was hungry for the victory, and scored five minutes into the first period.

But with just 2:38 left in the third period, Bandit Lucas Stafford scored the tying goal to keep Beverly's winning streak intact.

Justin Mann followed up with the winning goal, with just under two seconds left in regulation play.

The #2 Novice Bandits closed out January with an exciting win over Ayr#1.

The explosive front line netted five markers, with Courtney Vanderhout and Lucas Lochner both finding the target twice and Rys Cornell scoring once.

Jack Laidlaw pulled off a strong defence throughout the game, which helped netminder Paige Corbett fend off numerous shots on goal and preserve the win.
