Rocks erupt in third to stop 4-Wheel Drives

MILVERTON – The Elora Rocks scored five times in the third period to hand the Milverton 4-Wheel Drives a 7-5 setback in WOAA senior men’s hockey play Saturday night at the Milverton arena.

Milverton led 3-0 at the end of the first period and 3-2 after the second.

The Rocks tied it in the opening minute of the third, but the Drives shot ahead again with 10:38 to play. However, Elora responded to that goal with three of their own in a span of one minute and 33 seconds to go ahead for good.

Chad Herron and Santino Di Florio scored twice each for the Rocks while single goals were added by Brock West, Shawn Lantz and Mason Noble.

Braden Goran, Greg Huszarik, Brent Freeman and Mike Vitelli had the goals for Milverton.

Elora is tied for ninth in the 14-team league at 4-5-1-0 while Milverton is 14th at 0-8-0-1.

The Rocks are to host the Lucknow Lancers (1-6-0-0) Friday at 8:30 p.m. at the Elora and District Community Centre.
