MacDonald, Geddes hot
Both Jay Geddes and John MacDonald scored a pair of goals, to lead E.G.M. Insurance to a 6-1 drubbing of the Pembroke Merchants in Pembroke Sportsmen's Hockey League action at the Pembroke Memorial Centre recently.
Bob Videto opened the scoring in the first period giving E.G.M. a lead that disappeared with four minutes left in the period when Gary McCrea found the back of the net for the Merchants. E.G.M. turned up the heat with Geddes notching his first and Chris Jarvis also scoring before the end of the period. Things kept rolling in E.G.M.'s favour throughout the second with MacDonald adding two goals back to back, and Geddes adding his second of the game. Keith Roach had three helpers for E.G.M. and Perry Turcotte tallied two assists.
In a much closer contest, Irvcon/Eastway pulled out a 3-2 win over Donnelly's Homelife.
Donnelly's owned the first period, scoring the only two goals. Netting markers were Jim Mohns and Mitch Brideau. Neil Lipke added the only helper.
Then the wheels came off.
Irvcon/Eastway responded with three straight goals in the second to take the win. Rob Levasseur got his team on the board, while Denis Levasseur added a pair. In the third game of the night, Shots and Finnigan's battled to a 5-5 draw.
Matt Giesebrecht of Shots got the goal fest rolling in the first but before the period drew to a close, Brian Godin pulled Finnigan's even.
Finnigan's took a two-goal lead early in the second period off the sticks of Luc Vaillancourt at the 16:31 minute mark and Richard Barber less than a minute later.
Giesebrecht's second of the game pulled Shots within one, however, Godin's second of the game for Finnigan's restored his team's two goal lead.
Trevor Richardson cued the Shots comeback scoring with just under five minutes left in the second period. Terry Teasdale then evened things up just over 30 seconds later.
Before the second ended, Terry Lance gave Shots a lead, albeit a brief one, as Rodney Halliday tied the game at five, with a goal 13 seconds after Lance's.
