Barons Getting Hot
It has been a long time since the Hanover Barons beat the Wingham Ironmen but on Saturday night in front of a crowd of 580 fans at the Mildmay Arena the Barons beat the Ironmen 5-4. The previous night in Walkerton the Barons played quite well but came up short losing 5-2 to the Walkerton Hawks.
On Saturday night in Mildmay there was no scoring in the opening period although the Barons did outshoot the Ironmen 11-9. The Barons struck early in the second period when team captain and Mildmay native Tyson Soers put the Barons ahead only 33 seconds into the period and the Barons were never behind in the game although it did get close in the third period. Assisting on the Soers goal was another Mildmay native Jarrett Kuntz and Durham native Justin Graham. The Barons built a 3-1 lead in the second period when Ben Watson and Wendel Cameron scored with assists going to Lucas Johnson, Lukas Heathers, Denver Hill and newcomer Kyler Jones. Wingham rookie Holdyn Lansink replied for the Ironmen. Denver Hill made it 4-1 Barons early in the third assisted by Brad Pitt. Wingham then scored twice in a minute and nineteen seconds to make it 4-3 at 9:11 of the third. At 10:15 Barons rookie defenseman and another Mildmay native Colton Culbert made it 5-3 assisted by Brodie Lemay. The Ironmen added one more at 13:26 and did make it close at the end with the goalie on the bench but the Barons weathered the storm and finished with a 5-4 win. Third period Ironmen scorers were Jordan Skerrett, Justin Jacklin and Ryan McNeil. Cody van der Heide play well in the Hanover goal with shots on goal being 34-34 was indicative of the very close and well played game.
On Friday night in Walkerton the Barons again played well outshooting the league leading Hawks 41-29 but could not find the back of the net. The Hawks opened the scoring on a first period power play goal by Mitch Borden and followed up in the second period with two more by Lauchin Elder and Calvin Penney scoring on a penalty shot. The Barons finally got on the scoreboard at 3:26 of the third period when Justin Graham connected on a power play assisted by Garrett Reed and Jarrett Kuntz. Another power play goal at 7:52 by Baron Garrett Reed made it 3-2 and it looked like the comeback was on but at 14:42 Calvin Penney scored on another power play and it was Penney who put one in the empty net for the 5-2 Walkerton win. Gord Walmsley was in goal for the Barons and certainly held the Barons in the game until late in the final period. On the power play the Barons were 2 for 7 and the Hawks were 2 for 4.
Baron’s next home game is Saturday November 1 at the P&H Centre at 8:00 when the much improved Goderich Flyers play the Barons.
Pink In The Rink A Huge Success
Pink In the Rink Game in Mildmay a Huge Success on and off the Ice
The Hanover Barons had a very successful sojourn to Mildmay Saturday, where they hosted the Wingham Ironmen. With a combined 12 players from South Bruce on both teams, a virtual sell-out crowd watched the Barons win a thrilling 5-4 victory over the Ironmen. The incredible support from the South Bruce fans was very much appreciated by both teams.
The Barons were playing with heavy hearts, after learning of the death of long-time Barons Equipment Manager Ron Stephen’s wife Robyn this week. The team dedicated last night’s game to her memory and played with a level of passion
The team wore Pink Jerseys last night to help raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer and helped raise almost $1500 for the cause.
A huge thank you to everyone for making the night a big success.
