High scoring win for Pee Wee B Lakers

Lakers played the Eckville Eagles Nov. 25 at home

It was a high scoring affair for the Pee Wee B Lakers when they took on the Eckville Eagles on Nov. 25.

The Lakers outscored the Eagles by an impressive 14 points, winning the game 19-5.

The Lakers started early, with a total of seven goals during only the first period. Gavin Hyde, No. 10 for the Lakers started the game off only minutes into the first period with a shot on net, assisted by Rene Simon.

Layten Francis came out with just under 15 minutes remaining in the first and scored off a feed from Hayden Cairney. About one minute of play later, Francis scored again, this time unassisted.

Francis assisted Kyler Olsen’s goal with roughly half of the first period gone. Nick La Freniere got past Eckville’s goal tender with the help of Simon.

Simon got his first goal in with three minutes left in the first period. Before the end of the period Francis made his third goal of the game.

On the defence, the Lakers were not letting the Eagles through. The Eagles were unable to make it past to score on the Lakers goal tender.

Going into the middle frame, Sylvan Lake led, 7-0.

Simon started the second period off with another goal, assisted this time by La Freniere. Simon earned a hat trick before the period was up with one last goal on net with six minutes still to play in the second.

Before the period finished Francis came back for two more goals, assisted by La Fernier and Simon.

Avery Heaton scored the last goal of the second period unassisted.

The Lakers defence broke up just enough for the Eagles to make it through during the 20 minutes of play. The Eagles scored twice in the later half of the period, making the score 12-2 going into the final period.

The Eagles came out from the break with a quick goal against the Lakers in the final period. Despite the goal, and the Lakers extensive lead, the Lakers did not back down and continued to rack up the points in the final period.

Olsen scored four times throughout the final 20 minutes of the Nov. 25 game. Before the end of the game Hyde scored another two times, giving him a hat trick and Simon added another score to the board.

While the Lakers added another seven points to their lead, the Eagles also picked up another three points.

Despite finding holes to break through, the Eagles were unable to make up the difference in the final period.

The Lakers won 19-5 over the Eckville Eagles.

The Pee Wee B Lakers will play again at home on Dec. 10, when the Lakers will take on Settler. While this is considered to be a home game, the game will actually be held in Eckville, with the puck dropping at 3 p.m.
