For the first time this season the Hanover Barons earned four points this past weekend when they beat the Mitchell Hawks 7-2 at the P&H Centre on Friday night and then beat the Goderich Flyers in Goderich 3-2 in an overtime game on Saturday evening. Jarrett Kuntz was on fire for the Barons scoring four goals and gathering three assists in the two games on the weekend.
At the P&H Centre on Friday night the Mitchell Hawks opened the scoring at 5:30 of the opening period on a goal by Josh Den Otter only to have Hanover defenseman Kyler Jones tie it up at 11:30 assisted by AP Devin Perdue and Jarrett Kuntz. In the second period the Barons found the back of the net four times with Jarrett Kuntz scoring twice and Lucas Johnson and Lukas Heathers getting singles to build a 5-1 lead. Assisting on the second period goals were Tyson Soers and Colton Culbert with two each and single assists to Cole Leslie and Garrett Reed. Kyle Spence replied with one for Mitchell in the final minute of the second. The Barons continued to score in the third period with Colton Culbert and Garrett Reed scoring with assists to Jarrett Kuntz and Cole Leslie. The Barons power play was working well with the home team scoring four power play goals on only five opportunities. Cody Van der Heide got the win in goal for the Barons.
In Goderich on Saturday night the Barons opened the scoring at 5:29 of the second period when Jarrett Kuntz assisted by Tyson Soers got the Barons on the scoreboard. Goderich tied it up before the end of the second period. In the third the Barons again took the lead with Tyson Soers scoring and Jarrett Kuntz assisting only to have the Flyers score late to tie the game and force overtime. In the overtime it was Jarrett Kuntz getting his second of the night on a power play to give the Barons a 3-2 win.
With these two wins the Barons are now 10 -10 -0 on the season and hold down fourth place in the seven team league. Also of note on Saturday night the Wingham Ironmen took over top spot in the league.
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.
