ERIN – The Erin Blitz responded to a pair of goals scored 22 seconds apart by the Alvinston Killer Bees by netting seven in a row to claim an 8-2 victory in WOSHL play Saturday night at the Centre 2000 arena.

The Blitz took over the match with four goals in the second period, all coming before the period was seven minutes old.

Maxwell Lightfoot and Jacob Coulson tallied twice apiece for the Blitz while single goals were contributed by Joseph Franzin, Jordan Tutt, Joey Warywoda and Hayden Ireland. Jeff White had four assists while Franzin and Liam Galton had two apiece and Sean Caruso, Pierre-Luc Forget, Beni Berisha, Coulson, Lucas Schott, Marc Sandwell and Warywoda had one each.

Kane Johnson assisted on both of Alvinston’s goals while Robert MacLean had one assist.

The Blitz outshot the Killer Bees 27-19 and went 3-for-5 on their power play while Alvinston was scoreless on five power plays.

Andre Roy had 17 saves for the Blitz while Nolan DeKoning had 19 for Alvinston.

The result leaves the Blitz sixth in the nine-team league at 8-13-0-2 and Alvinston tied for seventh with the Plattsville Lakers at 6-17-0-1.

The Blitz are to complete their regular season Sunday with a game against the Delhi Flames (2-20-0-1) that is to bring the league’s regular season to a close.

That game will have no bearing on the playoffs as the teams are locked into their final positions with Delhi being the lone team to miss the playoffs.

Tilbury Bluebirds finish first at 19-4-0-1 and are followed by the Elora Rocks in second at 18-4-0-2, Stratford Fighting Irish in third at 18-6-0-0, Tillsonburg Thunder in fourth at 17-7-0-0, Strathroy Jets in fifth at 8-13-0-2, the Blitz in sixth, Plattsville in seventh and Alvinston in eighth.

The Blitz are to play Stratford in the best-of-five quarter-finals. That series is to start next Saturday at 4:30 p.m. at Stratford’s William Allman Arena.
