73's in first place at the half-way point of the season; Lakeshore holds games in hand

Nov 19, 2021

With their 5-4 home-ice win over the Mooretown Flags Tuesday, Nov. 16th, the Essex 73’s improved their record to 13-3, good enough for first place in the PJHL Stobbs Division with half the season to go.

Lakeshore Canadiens hold games in hand on Essex so things can change when the 73's hit the ice again, which won't be until Nov. 30th when they host the Pterolia Flyers.

ESSEX 5 MOORETOWN 4

Mooretown came to town most recently and the 73's were looking to pay them back for a 5-1 drubbing a few weeks prior up in Mooretown.

The third place Flags struck first on a goal by Brody Genyn but the 73's responded just 29 seconds later on a Josh Root marker.

At the 8:04 mark captain Tycen Chittle gave the 73's their first lead, but less than six minutes later, the visitors took the lead back as Genyn notched his second of the game, and shortly after that, Greg Hay, on the powerplay, made it 3-2 as the two teams headed to the locker room.

It's unknown what was discussed in the Essex locker room between perioids, but whatever it was, or wasn't, the 73's came out in the second frame and tallied three-straight goals in 33 seconds.

 

Carter Dembinski started things off and before the public address announcer could even get the goal announced, Karson Beuglet struck not once, but twice, in a 24-second span to put the 73's up 5-3.

 

Shots after two periods of play were 20-20.

 

In the third period, 73's goaltender Aidan Pitre made some big stops and despite a Nolan Farr goal for Mooretown halfway through the period, the 73's would hold on for a nice 5-4 victory, their 16th of the season.

 

Carter Dembinski had 3 points, Chittle 2 points, and Conor Dembinski 2 points.

 

Pitre stopped 23-of-27 shots for the win in the popes.

Tim Law sits down with captain Tycen Chittle to discuss what it means to play for the Essex 73's

When Tycen Chittle began his junior hockey career with the Lakeshore Canadiens, five years ago, never did he think he would end his playing days with their biggest rival, the Essex 73’s.

To say becoming a 73’s player is a bit of a family tradition among the Chittle name would be...
