Flyers Season Done - Bous win series 2-0

FRIDAY

The Kelly Ford Gander Flyers lost the First Game of their Best of 3 Playoff Series to the Clarenville Caribous 6-5 Friday Night in Clarenville. The Flyers wasted an excellent 5 point night from Brandon Hynes. Hynes scored 4 goals and added 1 assist in the loss. Hynes has been on Fire for the Flyers scoring 12 point in the last 3 games on the strength of 8 Goals and 4 assists.

Hynes opened the scoring Friday night to give the Flyers a short lived 1-0 lead. Just 2 minutes later Chad Earle tied the game 1-1 on the Power Play. Kevin Reid put the Bous up 2-1 early in the 2nd period but Hynes responded twice in the next 4 minutes to put the Flyers up 3-2 at the 7 minute marks of the 2nd period. Parker Deighan and Ryan Desrosiers responded to send the Caribous to the 2nd period intermission up 4-3.

Ryan Desrosier was back at it early in the 3rd to give the Bous a commanding 5-3 lead with a power play marker. Fortunately, for the Flyers Jordan Escott and Hynes responded to tie the game up 5-5 late in the 3rd period. It appeared that the Flyers and the Bous were going to an overtime but Desrosiers spoiled that idea with his 3rd of the game to give the Caribous a 6-5 win.

Marc Cheverie was quite busy in the Flyers net facing 51 shots in the game while the Caribous countered with Tyler Whiffen who faced 29 shots.

The Flyers go for a split in the series when they face the Caribous on Saturday Night. Game time is 7:30 at the Steele Community Center.

SATURDAY

After retiring Flyers legend Ed Philpott’s jersey in front of 1050 fans on Saturday night, the Kelly Ford Gander Flyers had the home town fans in a victorious mood jumping out to a 3-0 first period lead. Unfortunately, the Flyers were not able to hold onto the lead eventually losing 8-5 to the Clarenville Caribous. The Flyers also lost the Best of 3 Series to the Caribous 2-0 sending the Caribous onto play the Defending Champs, Grand Falls Windsor Cataracts beginning next Saturday Night in Grand Falls-Windsor, in a best of seven series.

The Flyers jumped out to a 3-0 lead on goals from Brandon Hynes and two from Ryan Watson. Kenny Mahoney scored just 1 minute into the 2nd period to let the Flyers faithful know they were not going down easily. Just 1 minute later, Jordan Escott restored the 3 goal lead for the Flyers. It appeared that the Flyers might not let this one slip away. Keith Delaney, Chad Earle, Kenny Mahoney and Ryan Desrosiers had the Flyers realing with 4 straight goals to give the Caribous a 5-4 lead BEFORE the 2nd period had ended. Tyler Carroll, the Flyers season MVP, appeared to stem the tide and send the teams to the 2nd period intermission tied 5-5.

Unfortunately for the Flyers, the intermission did nothing to slow down the Bous. Ryan Desrosiers and Stuart McRae (2 goals) finished off the Flyers and ended their season with a 8-5 victory.

Jordan Escott lead the Flyers with a 3 point effort. Ryan Watson, Andrew Ryan and Brandon Hynes chipped in with 2 point efforts. Marc Cheverie faced another ton of rubber in the Flyers net, facing 56 shots. That is 2 nights in a row that the Flyers gave up over 50 shots!!

Before the game, the Flyers retired Ed Philpotts #16 Jersey. They also announced a number of Team and League awards. Tyler Carroll was presented with his Team MVP award. Mitch Oake was presented with the Terry Oake “Heart and Soul” award. Finally, Jordan Escott was presented with the Central West Senior Hockey League’s Most Gentleman and Effective Player Award.

One of the Highlights of the Night was in the 2nd Period Intermission when Gord Crocker was the Lucky Fan who took the shot to win a 2017 Ford Mustang and Man ole Man did he ever come close.

The Flyers would like to thank the 1050 fans and volunteers who came out Saturday Night to make the evening the success it was. We only wish the final outcome was a little different.
