A tough first period was the ultimate demise of the Jr. C Caledon Bandits Friday in Mimico.
A hat trick by the Mountaineers’ Tyler Hurschman within the first 13 minutes of play was compounded by two more Mimico goals before the first buzzer, while only Brandon Marion could get on the board for the Bandits.
Mimico added two more in the second period while holding the Bandits scoreless, though they rebounded with a strong showing in the third period, in which each team notched three goals.
Darcy Tainsh scored his first goal as a Bandit, while Jordan Oshowy potted two to remain the team’s leader in goals, assists and points. In the first three weeks of the season, he has managed four goals and eight assists, sitting in 15th place in total league scoring.
The loss leaves Caledon winless through the first five games of the season, and the Bandits remain the final team in that unfortunate position after allowing two points to Mimico.
The Fergus Thistles and Six Nations Warriors continue their perfect starts to the season to sit together atop the OJCLL’s West division standings.
Caledon was to hit the floor again Tuesday to begin a four-game homestand, taking on the 2-2-0 Wilmot Wild after press time.
They continue this week with the only Friday home match of the season, hosting the Brantford Warriors (1-3-1) at 8 p.m. at Caledon East.
