With the OHA Provincial Jr. A Hockey League league roster cutdown deadline falling at midnight Tuesday, the Georgetown Raiders were reminded once again about what their sore spot has been in the 2005-06 campaign. Georgetown was shaded 1-0 in Hamilton by the second-place Red Wings on Monday night at Mountain Arena, going 0 for 12 on the power play. The visitors outshot the Wings 14-3 in the third period and 28-23 overall, but couldn't get anything past outstanding goalie Cameron Talbot. Corey Stringer's opening-period marker with Georgetown at a two-man disadvantage was the only puck to get past Raider netminder Ryan Gibb. Finding a scorer or two was the numberone priority of Raiders' director of player personnel Peter Mavroudis. No new deals had been finalized by The Independent & Free Press' deadline on Tuesday. On Saturday night, the fifth-place Raiders gave up the tying goal with just 10 seconds remaining in the third period against the Brampton Capitals and had to settle for a 44 draw. Twice in the contest the Capitals came back from two-goal deficits despite being outplayed and outshot 42-27. Defenceman Ryan Lee and newcomer David Jarman netted his first goal in a Georgetown uniform to give the hosts a 2-0 lead after the opening 20 minutes. Andrew Dennis appeared to have given the Raiders all the offence they'd need with a powerplay goal with less than five minutes to go in the final frame. Eight of the Raiders' final 12 regular-season games are on the road, including a Friday the 13th matchup with the first-place Milton IceHawks later this week. The `Hawks have gone 18 games without a loss and are 3-0-1 against Georgetown this season. The 18-14-3-2 Raiders will host the Burlington Cougars Saturday at the MoldMasters SportsPlex beginning at 7:30 p.m. NOTES: Raider forward Marc Marchese needed some facial repairs during the second period and had to change his uniform, but returned to Saturday's game and scored a third-period goal after being suckerpunched by Brampton's Mark Publow, who was ejected with a roughing major.
Captain Frank DeAngelis of the Georgetown Raiders looks to clear his zone with Brampton's Matt Ferreira in pursuit on Saturday evening at the Mold-Masters SportsPlex. Ferreira scored one of two late Capital goals to help the visitors earn a 4-4 tie in the OHA Provincial Jr. A Hockey League matchup.
