In Petrolia on Friday, Nov. 22, Greg Dodds proved to be unbeatable as he earned himself his first shutout of the season. The Clinton Radars extracted revenge on the Squires to the tune of 5-0 in the second meeting of these two squads. The Radars outshot the Squires 34-28 in this fast paced game.

The Radars grabbed a 1-0 lead on a goal by Josh Cornelissen at 11:50 of the first period. Corny took a feed from Max Campbell and drilled a wrist shot through a maze of players in front of the net. Blake Buchanan earned an assist on the play. With less than a minute left in the period Steven Shipley tucked the disc into the cage on a wild scramble in front of the net. Jamie Huber and Nathan Ansell both had several whacks at the loose puck before Shipley was able to deposit the disc into the back of the net.

In the middle frame Max Campbell scored a weird goal at 3:43 as he took a shot from behind the goal line. The disc hit the back of Petrolia’s goalie, Brandon Campbell, and ricocheted in behind him. Garrett Russell and Ryan Watson were given assists on the play. Derek Elliott scored the prettiest goal of the encounter as he scored on a hard wrist shot at 8:58 after working a give and go with Russell. Cullen Mercer added the helper. At 14:13 Ben VanOoteghem made it 5-0 as his shot trickled over the goal line after goalie Campbell thought he had made the initial save.

There was no scoring in the third period as both goalies came up with some excellent saves. The three stars of the game were: first star Greg Dodds for his outstanding play; second star Max Campbell with a goal and an assist for a total of two points; and the third star of the game went to Garrett Russell for his solid defensive play and two helpers.

A reminder to all you Radar fans that the annual P.J. Toss is Fri., Dec. 6 when the Dars will host the Ripley Wolves at 8:30 p.m. Be ready for the first Radar to hit the score board, and “toss those P.J.’s.”

 

Huether shines in Radars’ 4-1 win

In Lucknow on Saturday, Nov. 23, Ray Huether broke out of a mini scoring slump as he collected two goals and one assist in a 4-1 victory over the Lancers.

Radars goalie Drew Reinhardt turned in a stellar performance between the pipes for the Dars. He withstood a seven-minute power play for the Lancers when defenseman Garrett Russell was sent to the sin bin for his over exuberant play in the third period. Lucknow, who has not done a whole lot of winning so far this season, gave the Radars a pretty good battle.

In the first period Huether gave the visitors a 1-0 lead at 9:43 as he redirected a point shot taken by Darby Tyndall. Jamie Huber started the scoring opportunity, earning an assist on the play.

The two teams traded goals in the middle stanza with Huether scoring his second goal of the night to give the Radars a 2-0 advantage. Kurtis Bartliff’s pass to the front of the net from the side wall found Huether wide open where he easily scored the tap in goal. The Lancers’ Cole Macpherson cut the Dars’ lead in half at 17:13. His textbook shot found the top left corner of Reinhardt’s net, making the score 2-1.

In the third period, Max Campbell at 4:07 scored a beauty when his snap shot from below the circle found its way into the top right corner of the Lancers’ cage. It was expertly timed, his shot continued to rise as the Lancer’s goalie went down in attempts to make the save, and just like that the score was 3-1 Dars. Huether and Sean Consitt gathered the assist on the play. Derek Elliott rounded out the scoring at 16:48 while on a power play to make the final score of the game 4-1. His goal was the result of a tip in from a point shot taken by Consitt.

Last year’s WOAA leading scorer, Stephen Sanza suited up in his first game of the season this night and was rewarded with an assist. Welcome back into the fold, Stephen. The three stars of the game were: first star Ray Huether with two goals and one assist; second star Drew Reinhardt; and the third star of the game, Sean Consitt with two assists.
