Jr A upend Revolution 6 to 1

By WB, 10/24/13, 12:00PM EDT


The Philadelphia Little Flyers and the Philadelphia Revolution faced off at 7:15pm at the Ice works complex in Aston, PA.  With both teams coming off losses, each was hungry for a win.  The Revolution were also without their points leader Ken Tencza, and it showed. 

                The first goal came early in the first period as a routine dump in by defenseman Gabe Chuckran took an odd bounce off the boards, landing perfectly on the stick of John Peck as he was going to chase it.  Peck then fed George Watkins with a one-timer that was easily put home to put the Little Flyers up   1-0 less than three minutes into the game.

                The Little Flyers turned up the offense in the second period as they scored 5 goals in that period alone.   The period saw goals from Colin Woods, John Peck, Austin Kelly, and two from Jesse McIntyre.  The story of this game was Gabe Chuckran, who had three assists in this period and totaled  four for the game. 

                An unorthodox team rallying method was used by Revolution coach, James Laux in preparation for the third period, as he made his team sit on the bench during the second intermission, while the ice was being cut, instead of going into the locker room. Though it seems odd, from that point on the Revolution did not give up one more goal, and also scored one of their own off the stick of Ryan O’Malley on the powerplay in the last minute of the game.

                Alec Derks earned his 3rd win of the season allowing only one goal in the contest.  Opposing net minder Hunter Tetrault fell to 0-3, but while giving up 6 goals in this game, he made 44 saves as his defense allowed the Little Flyers to bombard him with shots from beginning to end. 

                The Little Flyers improved to 4-4-1 on the season, as the Revolution now sport a record of  3-10-1.  This game could be the confidence boost the Little Flyers need as they approach their Saturday home game against the Boston Junior Rangers (2-6-1), of the EHL North division, and try to take their record above .500 for the year. On Sunday the Little Flyers will play the Northern Cyclones of the EHL North division. Saturday's game time is 4 pm and Sunday 12 noon or you can catch all the action on Fast Hockey (
