Two weekend losses extend Lumberjacks losing streak to six games

DAN CEARNS The Standard

The Port Perry Lumberjacks remain winless in the month of February, after two recent losses by one goal each.

The Lumberjacks started out the Family Day long weekend with a game against the Ice in Georgina, on Sunday, February 18th.

Less than five minutes into the first period, the Ice scored the first goal of the game, putting Port Perry behind 1-0.

A shorthanded goal early in the second period extended Port Perry’s deficit to 2-0. Then, over 13 minutes into the frame, the Ice would strike again, making it a 3-0 game.

The Lumberjacks would attempt to mount a comeback in the third period. Nine and a half minutes in, Johannes Kalm scored, cutting the deficit to two goals. Just 17 seconds later, Johnny Lopez capitalized on a Lumberjacks power play, to bring the score to 3-2. Less than 17 minutes in, the Ice would score again, putting Port Perry behind 4-2. Parker Lemay scored a power play goal late in the period, but the Lumberjacks were unable to complete the comeback. They lost the game 4-3.

The Lumberjacks looked to end their losing streak, when they hosted the Clarington Eagles, at Scugog Arena, on Monday, February 19th.

Before the game started, the team welcomed members of the Lakeridge Health Foundation for Cancer Research to make a $10,000 donation. The funds were raised during the team’s “Pink in the Rink, Hockey Fights Cancer” game, held in December.

The game was scoreless until late in the first period. With less than three minutes on the clock, Andrew Naccarato-Soule skated into the Eagles zone, with great speed, and put a puck into the top right corner of the net, giving the Lumberjacks a 1-0 lead.

However, the Eagles would tie the game, less than six minutes into the second period, with a power play goal.

Seven and a half minutes into the third period, Clarington would score again, putting Port Perry behind 2-1. Then, just before the halfway mark of the period, the Eagles struck again, making it a 3-1 game. Parker Lemay would score a power play goal, 11 and a half minutes in, but that was as close as the Lumberjacks would get. They lost 3-2 to the Eagles.

One Timers:

- The Lumberjacks will head into Apsley, to face the North Kawartha Knights, on Saturday, February 24th. That game will begin at 7:25 p.m.

- The Lumberjacks losing streak is currently at six games.
