Tigers Ground Flyers
Submitted By Justin Disher on Friday, November 22, 2019
The Welland Telus Tigers prevailed 3-1 over the Niagara Falls Flyers in major peewee A action on Friday night at the Welland Main Arena but it was far from their best effort of the season.



The team's success thus far has largely stemmed from superb puck movement and excellent goaltending and only the goaltending was evident on Friday night.

Perhaps the long layoff between home games was a factor since the Tigers have not played a home game since October 25th, but it was quite obvious that the team was not playing as one as they struggled to defeat the hard-working Flyers. Niagara Falls, playing as a team, put up a valiant effort and simply could not find a way to score on Lukas Biggar in goal despite largely dominating the flow of gameplay.

The limited offense Welland did manage resulted from excellent passing but it has not quite become an automatic habit for this team which has short-circuited their success both at even-strength and on the powerplay. Welland squandered several opportunities with the man-advantage, including an opportunity five-on-three, by going scoreless on six chances with the extra attacker.

Welland did manage to get on the scoreboard first when Ryan Reeves deposited a terrific pass from Noah Bovine and Jordan Raso past Brenden Edwards at 10:47 of the second period. 

Thomas Mousseau would net the equalizer just over two minutes later from Zachary Gagnon but the Tigers would respond quickly when Jordan Raso would score from Raphael Boucher and Josh Lamb twenty-three seconds later to assume the lead.

Max Myers would add on an insurance maker from Alexander McQuillan and Boucher about five minutes later as Welland was able to preserve the two goal advantage the rest of the way despite falling into late penalty trouble.

Welland was 1-for-7 with the extra attacker while also going 1-for-7 while short-handed.

The Tigers, now 8-3-1 in  regular-season competition, hope to overcome their undisciplined play as they take on the league-leading Stoney Creek Warriors at 3pm at Valley Park Arena on Saturday afternoon.
