The Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts climbed back to .500 on the season with a two-game sweep of the Gander Flyers in Central West Senior Hockey League play.
The Cataracts, 6-6, received three goals from Steve Yetman Sunday, and a goal and four assists from Andre Gill to hand the Flyers a 9-6 loss at Joe Byrne Memorial Stadium.
Michael Hynes scored twice for the winners, while Sam Hounsell, Andrew Brennan and Klay Kachur potted singles. Danny Wicks collected five helpers.
Andrew Ryan netted a goal and assisted on three others, while Jordan Escott had a goal and two helpers for the Flyers, who fell to 7-6-1. Brandon Hynes, Brad Power, Brett Shute and Nick Fitzgerald also scored for the visitors, who added a new goaltender, Doug Pippy of St. John’s, to the roster. He replaces Marc Terriault, who rejoins the Saint Mary’s Huskies.
The Cataracts lost the services of goaltender A.J. Whiffen in the game when he tweaked a hamstring. The team doesn’t play again until Feb. 3-4, and the Cataracts are hoping Whiffen will be good to go.
Saturday night at Gander’s Steele Community Centre, Yetman scored twice for the visiting Cataracts, and added an assist in a 6-3 Grand Falls-Windsor victory. Also scoring were Brennan, Wicks, Kachur and Rodi Short. Ryan, Hynes and Mitch Oake replied for the homestanding Flyers.
