Junior 'C' prospects ready to battle

A pair of young Orillia Terriers forwards have been selected to play in the inaugural Provincial Junior Hockey League (PJHL) Prospects Day at the Wilmot Recreation Complex on Saturday afternoon in Baden.

Dave Dawson/The Packet & Times Orillia forward Ben Schryer managed to get in behind the Stayner defence and got a Grade A scoring opportunity that was foiled by Siskins goalie Zach Levac. Moments later, Schryer scored to give the Terriers a short-lived 1-0 advantage. Stayner cruised to a 14-1 win over the Terriers in a Wednesday night contest at Rotary Place.

There was a moment, with six minutes left in the second period, that aptly summarized the very short season, to date, for the Subaru of Orillia Terriers. While on a power play, the sloppy Terriers surrendered a two-on-one that ended in another goal for Stayner and further deepened the hole the home side found themselves in.
