The Alliston Hornets picked up four points over the weekend after winning both of their road games.

Friday (Dec. 16) night took the Alliston squad up to Penetanguishene to take on the Kings.

Considering the Kings have won only two game all season, they put up a bigger fight than what was expected and the game had to go into overtime to decide a winner.

The Hornets were first on the scoreboard on goals from Connor Hiles and Cole Turcotte.

The Kings responded with two late-period goals to make it a 2-2 game.

Penetang took the lead with a goal just 26 seconds into the second period.

Alliston was back in front when Payton Palbiski scored followed by a second Hornets goal from Jack Micone four and a half minutes later.

The Kings scored the only goal of the third period to tie the game at 4-4 and force an overtime period.

The Hornets got the win when Cole Turcotte scored at 5:51 into the OT period.

On Sunday, Dec. 18, the Hornets played their second game of the weekend when they took a trip to Caledon to play the Golden Hawks.

The only goal scored in the first period came from Alliston’s Ben Taylor.

Taylor scored again early in the second frame, followed by a third Alliston goal from Andrew Maltby.

The Hawks got on the scoreboard midway through the period.

Cole Turcotte scored with 51 seconds remaining in the second period to give the Hornets a 4-1 lead going into the final period.

The Hornets left the ice with a 5-1 win when Connor Hiles hit the back of the Caledon net late in the period.

After the weekend the Hornets have 39 points and a 19-4-1 record and are holding on to second place in the standings.

The Stayner Siskins are still in the top spot with 40 points.

The Schomberg Cougars are in third place with 30 points, followed by the Huntsville Otters with 24.

Orillia and Innisfil are in fifth and sixth place respectively with 23 points each.

The Hornets will be back on home ice at the New Tecumseth Recreation Centre on Friday, Dec. 23, when they will host the Schomberg Cougars for the last game of 2022.

Game time is 7:30 p.m.
