Drayton downs Floradale 5-2


Listowel claimed the only goal of the first period off a hard wrist shot by Braeden Gingerich, assisted by Phil and Josh Shantz.

But that was the end of their scoring as Community scored the tying goal in the second and added three more unanswered goals in the third. Ryco Martin scored the tying goal off the set up passes of Graham Wideman and Jeff Horst.

Jeff Horst scored the go- ahead goal. Kevin Gingrich added an insurance marker and Joe Gerbe an empty-net tally in the final minute.


After the first period of play the game remained tied 1-1. Laverne Metzger scored an unassisted goal for Bethel; while Tyson Robous scored for Missionary, assisted by Jamie Hoelscher.

Hoelscher went on to score the go-ahead for Missionary in the second period,  but a screened shot by Maynard Brubacher tied the game for Bethel in the third, assisted by Metzger.

Kyle Martin sealed the win for Bethel in the final minute of the game on a breakaway rush, sending the puck into the short side corner.


Despite being short handed for much of the opening period, Drayton still built up a 2-0 lead. Each team scored once in the second. But Drayton added two more in the third, while Floradale added only one.

Drayton’s Cam Mohle completed his hat trick and added an assist for a four-point night. Rob DeWeerd scored one and assisted on another.

Darrin Mohle scored the other Drayton goal. Other assists were awarded to Aaron Keunan, Colton Hoekstra, and Brent Mulder.

Corey Wideman blasted a goal for Floradale with a slap shot from the point, and Greg Martin found the back of the net with a wrist shot, assists went to Ryan Weber, Ryan Martin and Kendrick Frey.
