The Jr. ‘A’ Shamrocks are down 2 games to none in their best-of-five Minto Cup final series, dropping game 2 by an 11-5 score.

The Rocks held a 3-2 first period lead, fell behind 6-5 after 40 minutes and failed to score in the final 20 minutes as the Orangeville Northman scored 5 unanswered goals to pick up the win.

Zach Manns had a hat trick for the Shamrocks with Patrick Dodds and Caleb Kueber the other goal scorers.

Brayden Brown and Austin Madronic each had a pair of assists.   For Orangeville it was Jonathon Donville with 4 goals and 2 assists while Kyle Watters had the hat trick and 1 helper.

Orangeville can hoist the Minto Cup with a win in game 3 tomorrow while Victoria will try to force a fourth game which would be played Sunday.
