The Alliston Junior C Hornets were 9-0 after Friday night, October 14’s home game against the Schomberg Cougars at the New Tecumseth Recreation Centre.

The Hornets hammered the Cougars 9-2 in a lopsided affair the kept the visitors on defence for most of the night.

“We outplayed them, I thought,” said Hornets forward Matthew Nastaiuk, who notched a hat trick for the night. “We had a few break downs but thought we still did good. We worked them hard for the whole game. We’re a fast paced team. We held them down low. We’re a good down low team.”

The Hornets opened the scoring at 9:50 into the first period on a goal from Ryan McRynolds.

Schomberg responded with a goal two minutes later to tie it up.

The Alliston squad finished off the first with two more goals from Nastasiuk and Stephen Nosad.

Nastasiuk got his second of the game just 15 seconds into the second period.

Brandon Washer took the feed from Devon Gillham to score and give the Hornets a 5-1 advantage early in the second.

The Cougars scored their second on a powerplay at the midway mark in the frame, but Alliston’s Kyle Linney notched Hornets goal number six to make it a 6-2 game with one period remaining.

The Hornets wrapped up the night shutting out the Schomberg squad in the third period and scoring three more to end it.

Nastasiuk scored early for his hat trick, followed by Drake Board and Mitch Livingston notching singles to end the game at 9-2.

The Hornets remain undefeated with 18 points as of Friday night.
