Spartans spoil Titans comeback

Friday night at the Centre was round #2 of the Spartans vs Titans northern division rivalry. Like most of the games it was a close affair with lots of good clean hockey played by both teams. Some spectacular goaltending but in particular Mark Moon of the Spartans who made several saves of the highlight reel type. The Spartans opened the scoring in the first 2 minutes of the game on a power play. They kept that lead after the first period. Another power play goal early in the middle period by the Spartans and it was now 2-0. About three minutes later while shorthanded, they made it 3-0. Scott Sovinsky got the home squad on the board with a goal with about 5 minutes to play in the period. The Titans started the third period with a little urgency and the hard work paid off with a Guillaume Taupier goal to reduce the lead to 3-2. Then it was Nicolas Proulx innocent looking wrist shot from the blue line that managed to find it’s way through a bunch of legs and sticks and beat Moon with less than 2 min to go. But only 43 seconds later the Spartans had a reply to retake the lead 4-3 and that’s the way the game ended. Ryder Murray chipped in with 2 assists. Shots were 38-33 Titans. 3 stars were Moon, Tommy Stanislavski and Nico Wilton. Prior to the start of the game, the Titans held a short remembrance day ceremony. Next up for the Titans are back to back home games first on Thursday Nov 17 when they host the West Nipissing Lynx and followed by a visit from the Bradford Rattlers on Friday evening
