The Milton Menace remain undefeated on the road this OJHL regular season.
On Friday night, the boys went into Oakville to take on the Blades at the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex. It was Captain Connor Driscoll that kicked things off for Milton, scoring 11-minutes into the first period. His sixth goal on the season was assisted by Madden MacDougall, who continues to be a great addition. The Menace led 1-0 after 20-minutes.
Driscoll then scored his second of the game to open the second frame. The shorthanded goal was assisted by Justin O’Donnell and Owen Kindree. Oakville then scored back-to-back goals in less than two minutes, which helped the Blades tie things up before the final frame. It was 2-2 after two.
Oakville then took the lead late in the third period, before Tristan Tremble potted his third of the season at the 18:18 mark. It was assisted by Driscoll and Graeme Macauley. That set up Nicholas Wereha to score the game winner for Milton just 27 seconds later. Ivan Fabjan had the lone assist on the GWG. Milton won 4-3.
Menace starting goaltender Glen Crandall was in net. He had a busy night, stopping 44 of 47 shots. That gave him a hearty .936% save percentage along with the win.
It was then time for some revenge on Sunday.
The Menace hosted the Toronto Patriots at the Milton Memorial Arena, after losing to the Pats on Friday the 13th. It was all Patriots on the scoreboard in the first period. They’d score the first and lone goal in the frame, taking a 1-0 lead into the second period.
That was when Connor Driscoll scored his eighth goal of the season, assisted by Justin O’Donnell and Madden MacDougall. Later in the period, Graeme Macauley picked up his third goal of the season, this one on the powerplay. It was assisted by MacDougall and Alessandro Petreccia. A few minutes later, Aidan Puley also got himself on the board. His powerplay goal was assisted by Driscoll and Owen Kindree. The Menace led 3-1 after two periods.
The third period saw a lone goal by Toronto, which meant Milton won 3-2.
Crandall was in net once again, and continued to be a star. He stopped 33 of 35 shots, giving him his second win of the weekend and a save percentage of .942%.
