CRAIG SCHROTER Special to The Standard
The Lindsay Muskies put up a good effort against a much higher ranked team but. A late Trenton power play goal sealed the Muskies fate as they fell by a count of 4 to 2, to the Golden Hawks.
Adam Kim opened the goal, scoring for Trenton at the 2:38 mark. The Golden Hawks kept coming as they held the upper hand in the opening frame. Wyatt George made it 2 to 0 for Trenton with just two minutes left in the opening period.
Peterborough native Brett Robertson got the Muskies on the board with a goal assisted by Noah Pardy at 1:30 of the second period. That would be the only goal of the period and it was Robertson’s fifth of the year.
Wyatt George grabbed his second of the night just 35 seconds into the third to put Trenton up 3 to 1. The Muskies thought they had scored one back, but they waived the goal off as being kicked in. Troy Andrews scored his fourth of the year from Duncan Scullion at 7:45 to get the Fish within one.
Moments later, they thought they had the equalizer, but again the goal was disallowed as the net was off. A late penalty to the Muskies provided the Golden Hawks with just the chance they needed as Colin Van Den Hurk scored a power play goal to round out the scoring.
After the game I had a chance to ask Robertson which was the bigger play; his goal, or a beauty of a kick save he made with the Muskies net empty in the dying seconds? I think he was pretty happy with both plays, but ultimately complimented line mate Noah Pardy, and a bounce that lead to his goal.
“I thought we got off to a slow start, but got it going in the second and third.” Robertson said after the game.
The next action for the Muskies is Sunday afternoon in Whitby.
