Stayner Siskins go 10 games undefeated
Stayner Siskins hockey club is undefeated after 10 games played in the North Carruthers Division Junior C Hockey League.
As of Monday, Stayner is sitting in second place only because the perennial champions, Alliston Hornets, 11-1, has played two more games.
Unfortunately, the two clubs played each other last night at the Stayner rink and the result is unknown, but it certainly is interesting for hockey enthusiasts whether Stayner remains undefeated or not. You can follow them online http://ohastayner.pointstreaksites.com.
Stayner has scored a lofty 70 goals thus far this season, that’s an average of seven goals per game, although the numbers are inflated because of blowouts over Schomberg, Wingham and Orillia.
Stayner netminders have allowed 22 goals, the stingiest in the division.
Alliston’s only blemish came Sept 29th against the 5-4 Midland Flyers, a 4-3 loss.
Once again the other teams in the division are fighting amongst themselves for number three to eight positions. Schomberg and Caledon are both 4-6, Penetang, 2-6, Orillia, 2-8, and Huntsville has not garnished a single point in nine games.
Last year’s scoring champion Ben Hughes is battling Hornets Ryan Young for top scorer this season. At this stage of the season, Young is perched on top from 12 goals and 16 assists, only getting the ranking from his goal production. Hughes also has 28 points but four fewer goals.
Stayner’s JD Falconer’s 13 goals are the most in the league, his six assists puts him sixth overall in scoring. Other Siskins in the league’s top 10 in scoring are Kevin Boyd, 16 points from seven goals and nine assists, team captain Lucas Jeffery and Jordan Taylor each have 15 points.
Jeffery has notched eight goals while Taylor has turned the red light on six times.
Stayner’s next game is this Sunday against the Golden Hawks in Caledon, and back home against the pesky Midland Flyers Thursday, Oct. 26.
