·2 min read

The Alliston Hornets got a much-needed win on Friday night when the Midland Flyers arrived in town.

The Hornets had recorded only one win prior to this game and were looking to start turning that record around. Ben Beausaert opened the scoring at 9:08 into the fi rst period.

The Hornets were ahead by two when Mitchell Smilsky notched a goal with 26 seconds remaining on the clock. Back on the ice for the second period, the Hornets took command of the game and notched fi ve goals for the frame. Midland got their only goal at the 7:50 mark in the period.

Hornets second period goals came from Mitchell Smilsky, Cole Turcotte, Ben Beausaert, Christian Moore, and Jakob Power. With a six-goal lead, the third period became a formality, but the Alliston squad kept up the pressure.

Ben Taylor scored at just over a minute into the period. That was followed by two more goals from Nathan Smilsky and Ducan Grube.

The final was a 10-1 win for the Hornets.

Looking a little more disciplined in this game, the Hornets kept their time in the penalty box to a minimum taking eight minutes in minors for the game. T

he last two home games saw penalties give the Alliston squad a lot of trouble.

The win leaves the Hornets in fourth place in the standings with a 2-3-1 record. T

he Schomberg Cougars are currently in first place in the league with a 6-0-1 record, followed by the Orillia Terriers and the Stayner Siskins.

The Hornets will return to home ice at the New Tecumseth Recreation Centre this Friday, October 29, to host the Caledon Golden Hawks.

Game time is 7:30 p.m.
