Terriers bump slump with pair of weekend victories

Reed Spinola stopped all 30 shots he faced Saturday night to backstop the Terriers to a 5-0 triumph over rival Midland

The McLean & Dickey Orillia Terriers have bumped their slump.

After a win in Huntsville Friday night, the Terriers returned home Saturday night and made it two wins in row courtesy a dominant 5-0 triumph over visiting Midland in a spirited Provincial Junior Hockey League contest at Rotary Place. 

Orillia’s Devon Edmonds scored the only goal of the first period before the home side broke out in the middle stanza, tallying three goals in just over six minutes to take a stranglehold on the game.

In the second, Josh Brown upped the lead to 2-0, before Aaron Zurawski tallied a goal to give his team a 3-0 lead. Edmonds’ short-handed goal late in the frame allowed the Terriers to go to the dressing room with a 4-0 advantage.

A late goal from Marcus Petroff ended the scoring. Dylan Palomaki led all playmakers with three assists.

Reed Spinola earned the shutout between the pipes, stopping all 30 shots he faced.

The Terriers outshot Midland 46-30 as 171 fans went home happy after the victory.

With the two weekend wins, the Terriers improved their record to 15-13; they sit fourth in the eight-team North Carruthers Division. With the loss, Midland’s record drops to 5-21; they are in seventh place.

The Terriers next see action Friday night in Alliston (24-6) before returning home Saturday for a 7:30 p.m. contest against Huntsville (15-17) at Rotary Place in west Orillia.
