Flyers season comes to a close

by Tammy MacDonald

The Flyers played their last game of the 2006-2007 season Sunday afternoon when they hosted the first place, Colborne Cobras. The 6-1 win over the Flyers solidified the Cobras’ position of first place in the Empire League Standings.

The Flyers had some great opportunities in the game and were able to hold the Cobras to within two until the third period. The Flyers penalty killers did a good job, only allowing one powerplay goal in the game. Veteran Keith Scott scored the Flyers’ only goal, with the assist going to Jason Dasilva.

The season revealed some budding hockey stars for the Flyers, who continued to show their potential throughout the season. Mike McKinnon collected 12 goals and 5 assists for 17 points to finish the season. The team’s leading rookie goal scorer Jake Beatty finished with 8 goals and 13 assists for 21 points.

Despite a 3-36-1 record this season, that didn’t stop the Flyers top offensive line from performing at a high level. Jason Dasilva, the league leading scorer and nominee for League MVP, finished the season with 46 goals and 35 assists for 81 points, Captain Jordan Babcock finished with 16 goals, 26 assists for 42 points and Keith Scott finished with 14 goals, 9 assists for 23 points. Goaltender Adam Flynn is giving the organization young goaltending talent to move forward with and for a team that hasn’t won a whole lot of games, for these guys to step up the way they did says a lot for their commitment to the team.

Overage forward, Joe Harvey, played his last game with the Flyers on Sunday after playing 2 years with the team. Joe finished this season with 3 goals and 3 assists for 6 points with 18 penalty minutes. The Flyers will miss Joe’s experience, as he was able to play both forward and defense, as well as his contributions in the dressing room. The Flyers would like to thank Joe for his dedication and wish him all the best in the future.

The Flyers would also like to thank all the fans that came out and cheered the team on. They were a great support for the team and the Flyers hope to see them back for the 2007-2008 season.
