Travellers on brink of not making the playoffs

Sports Jan 18, 2016 by Darryl Smart Norfolk News

In an attempt to gain some ground for that last playoff position, the Delhi Travellers stumbled over the weekend.

Seven points behind the Burford Bulldogs with six games to go in the Midwestern Ontario Junior C Hockey League season, the Travellers hoped to gain some ground with a pair of road games.

Unfortunately that did not happen with a 9-0 loss to the Wellesley Applejacks and 6-2 decision to the Tavistock Braves.

Friday, Nick Breault, Spencer Brick and Shaun Pickering scored first period goals to surge the Applejacks.

Alex Utley then chipped in with a pair of second-period markers, before Joe Heath did the same in the third. Brick and Cal Jefferies also got in on the act.

On Saturday, the Braves jumped out to a lead with Angus Rowland and Jacob Rooke scoring in the first and second period respectively, before Jordan Betzold responded at the end of the frame.

It was all Braves in the third period though, with Rowland, Jared Yantzi, Rooke and Garrett Schultz adding to the lead.

Nevin Guenther had the only Travellers’ response.

With a 4-31-1 record, and four games remaining, the Travellers host the Ayr Centennials Friday at 7:30 p.m.
