The Brooklin Redmen came into tonight’s game looking for a win in front of their home fans.  The team had recently added Gavin Prout, 2000 Major Series Rookie of the Year, as well as Jonas Derks to the line-up.  Both players ended up playing big roles in the 8-7 win for the Redmen in front of a decent crowd at Iroquois Park Arena.

The Redmen went with Gee Nash in net, while the Lakers started Derek Collins.

The Lakers jumped on the board first and second to open a 2-0 lead with just four minutes off the clock.  The Redmen answered as Derks scored a power play marker with almost fifteen minutes gone in the first.  The teams traded goals including a Jason Crosbie goal with just 11 seconds on the clock to give the Lakers a 3-2 lead after one.

The defensive struggle continued in the second frame, as each team was only able to squeeze out one goal.  Crosbie scored his second on the power play and Jason Clark scored his first of three on the night for the Lakers, as Peterborough hung on to a 4-3 lead after two periods.  The second period saw all hell break loose as referees Martin and Gardonio decided some rough play along the glass deserved all 10 players on the floor being escorted off the floor and straight to the showers.  Five Redmen and five Lakers were given game misconducts as well as a variety of other calls for 77 minutes of penalties to the visitors versus 72 minutes for the Redmen on that one costly skirmish.

The third period was more wide open on the floor as well as in the players’ benches.  Mike Hamilton tied the game for the Redmen at 5:58 of the final frame.  The teams traded goals for the rest of that period with Jason Clark notching his hat-trick goal at 16:28 of the period.  Gavin Prout gave the crowd a reason to cheer as he cut across the front of Derek Collins in the Laker net and buried one with 47 seconds remaining to send the Redmen away with two very important points.

Penalties on the night were 125 for the Lakers and 94 for the Redmen.  Both goalies went the distance in their respective nets.

Next up for the Redmen, they host the much improved Akwesasne Thunder Wednesday June 18, 2003 at 8:00 p.m. at Iroquois Park Sports Centre.

The Brooklin Redmen kicked off their 2003 season tonight on the road against their long-time rivals the Peterborough Lakers.  Talk amongst fans and observers of the team has been the number of veterans who may or may not return this season.  That was not important on this night, and indeed Coach Troy Cordingley said on the opening night of training camp that he was only interested in effort and grit showed by players who wanted to play.  The Redmen had built a 7-3 lead into the second period and despite the 10-8 loss Cordingley was happy with the effort and physical play that was displayed on this night.

Earlier in the afternoon, General Manager Barry Johnson pulled off a trade with the Brampton Excelsiors for Scott Stapleford in return for a 2nd round draft pick in the 2004 draft.

The Redmen started Gee Nash in net while the Lakers went with Mike Miron.  Referees on the night were Bill Fox and Kevin MacPherson.

The teams were deadlocked at 3-3 after the first period.  The Redmen were up 3-2 looking as if they would hold that lead but with three seconds on the clock, Kevin Dostie scored for the Lakers to knot the game.  Jason Crosbie got the Redmen on the board in the first with goals also coming from Jay Huber and Bill Greer.

The middle frame looked very good for the visitors.  In front of solid goaltending from Nash, the Redmen were able to build a 7-3 lead with six minutes to go in the second.  The Lakers came back with two of their own in the last four minutes of the period and the Redmen took a 7-5 lead into the second intermission.

The final period was a tough one for the Redmen as they were held to only one goal, coming from ex-Laker Ryan Harris at 4:34 of the third.  The Lakers went on a four-goal run in the second half of the third, including one into an empty net to take the victory by a final of 10-8.

The Redmen will travel to Cornwall on Friday night June 6, 2003, for an 8:30 p.m. contest against the Akwesasne Thunder.

Opening night at home for the Redmen is Wednesday, June 11, 2003, at 8:00 p.m. when they host these same Peterborough Lakers at Iroquois Park Arena.

Total penalties for the night – Redmen nine minors for 18 minutes and the Lakers have assessed seven minors for 14 minutes.

The Brooklin Redmen travelled east down the 401 tonight to take on the Akwesasne Thunder on Cornwall Island.  The Redmen were coming off a tough 10-8 loss last night in Peterborough in their first action of the season.  Jason Crosbie led the way tonight for the Redmen with five goals and one assist in a 13-9 loss to drop their record to 0-2.  The Redmen were without the services of Peter Lough, Barrett Church and Bill Greer who could not make the trip due to work commitments.

The Thunder won the first period by a score of 7-4, chasing Gee Nash from the net with 5:07 left in the frame.  David Power, who went the rest of the way, replaced him.

The second-period score was 5-1 for the Thunder as they took a 12-5 lead into the second intermission.  The Redmen showed some life in the final frame as they won that period 4-1.

As noted, Crosbie was (5,1) for the visitors.  Ryan Harris had a pair of goals and three helpers while Scott Stapleford added two goals and one assist.

Penalties on the night were 20 minutes on 10 minors for the Thunder and 10 minutes, five minors for the Redmen.

Redmen will regroup and host the Peterborough Lakers in their home opener on Wednesday, June 11, 2003, at 8:00 p.m.
