A couple of sound defeats this past weekend at the Georgetown Raiders' expense has widened the gap between them and the front-runners in the OHA Provincial Jr. A Hockey League's West Conference standings. On Friday night, the second-place Oakville Blades earned their third straight win over the Raiders this season with a 6-2 triumph. Fifth-place Georgetown trailed just 3-2 in the late stages of the second period before the Blades took control. Matt Thomson and Kyle Schwende accounted for the Raiders' scoring, while goalie Keaton Hartigan was peppered with 45 Oakville shots. Third-place Hamilton also outshot and outplayed the Raiders en route to a 5-1 win Saturday. The guest Red Wings skated to a 3-0 lead by the midway point of the game and Schwende's power-play marker later in the second period was the only puck out of 24 Raider shots to get past Hamilton veteran Cameron Talbot. Newcomer Brian Mahoney-Wilson, making his home debut in goal for the 14-7-3-3 Raiders, faced 34 shots in taking the loss. Hamilton has lost just once in its last 13 outings. Georgetown hosts the Buffalo Jr. Sabres this Saturday at the Alcott Arena beginning at 7:30 p.m., followed by a trip to Burlington to take on the fourth-place Cougars Sunday night. The Raiders continue to make roster moves, sending rookie defender Keegan McFarlane to the Collingwood Jr. A Blues for cash as 20-year-old blueliner Ryan Lee made his return to the lineup after a stint in the Central Hockey League with Austin, Texas.
