After a slow start to the season, the Tottenham Railers are moving up in the standings of the South Division of the Greater Metro Hockey League.

The Railers won their Friday (Jan. 19) night game over the Niagara Predators during an away game at the Meridian Credit Union Arena in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Niagara was first on the scoreboard in Friday’s game, but the Railers responded when Emile Martin tied the game at 17:11 into the period.

The Tottenham squad went ahead with the only second-period goal when Ryan Anderson scored at 6:37 into the frame.

The Railers’ defence kept Niagara in check in the third period, stopping them from scoring.

Tottenham’s Ezra Baer got the only third-period goal on an empty net with 59 seconds remaining on the clock to give the Railers a 3-1 win.

It was win number 15 for the Railers, giving them a 15-18 record, including one overtime loss. After the game, they were in fifth place in the South Division.

The North York Renegades continue to lead the division with a 24-7 record, including two overtime losses.

They are followed by the Bradford Bulls in second place and the Durham Roadrunners in third.

The St. George Ravens are in fifth place in the division.

The Railers will be back on home ice at the Ray Twinney Recreation Centre in Newmarket on Friday, Jan. 27, when they will host the St. George Ravens.

Game time is 7:45 p.m.
