After the previous weekend that saw the Alliston Hornets take two losses, including being battered by the last-place Penetang Kings, the Hornets redeemed themselves with a huge win over the first-place Stayner Siskins Saturday, Feb. 4, on home ice at the New Tecumseth Recreation Complex.

It was only the second loss the Siskins have taken this season.

The Hornets opened the scoring in the first period with a goal from Ben Taylor.

In the second period, the Alliston squad came out firing on all cylinders. 

They scored five goals in under five minutes to stun not only the Siskins but the fans who thought it would be a close game but weren’t expecting Stayner to give up so many goals, considering their ‘goals against’ average is so low this season.

Alliston goals came from Ashton Kirwin, Jack Micone, Ben Taylor, and two from Jakob Power.

The Siskins got on the scoreboard at the midway mark in the period to make it a 6-1 game with one period left to go.

Stayner scored the opening goal in the final period.

Josh Presley got Alliston goal number seven at 10:26 into the period.

The Siskins managed to score two more third-period goals.

Alliston’s Connor Hiles notched the game’s final goal with 1:12 left on the clock to give the Hornets an 8-4 win.

This was a huge win for the Hornets, who gave up a loss in their two previous games to Stayner this season. Those games were low scoring, and the Hornets played well both times.

After the weekend, Stayner remains in first place in the North Carruthers Division or the Provincial Junior Hockey League with a 29-2 record and 58 points.

The Hornets are maintaining second place with 50 points and a 24-7-1 record and 50 points.

In third place, the Schomberg Cougars have 44 points and a 21-7-1 record.

The Orillia Terriers, Innisfill Spartans and Huntsville Otters are in the middle of the pack separated by only two points.

The Caledon Golden Hawks are in the number seven spot, followed by the Midland Flyers and the Penetang Kings.

The Hornets played a home game against Schomberg on Wednesday, Feb. 8, with results not available at press time.

They will be back on home ice at the New Tecumseth Recreation Centre on Friday, Feb. 10, when they will host the Orillia Terriers.

Game time is 7:30 p.m.
