Delay Doesn’t Affect Cyclones’ ChargeApril 15, 2018 8:50pm
Listowel forward Brady Anderson had the hot hand and scored a hat trick as the Listowel Cyclones beat London 5-2 to take a 2-1 series lead in the Sutherland Cup semi-final.
After the game was postponed due to weather Saturday, the teams picked up the series Sunday night in London.
The Nationals took the early lead as Brandon Glover scored at 6:47 of the first period.
And it stayed 1-0 until 14:28 of the second period when Brady Anderson scored his first of the game from Mitch Deelstra and Blake Nichol. Then Brett Primeau gave Listowel the lead with just 18 sec left in the period. Assists went to Tommy Hoogars and Jakob Lee.
Anderson then took the spotlight in the third scoring two more goals. The first at 9:23 as Mitch Deelstra picked up another assist. Then Anderson scored unassisted at the 11:52 mark.
Max Coyle added a short handed, empty net goal for good measure just before London’s Tyler Kielt scored on the power play with just 15 sec left in the third period.
There were only four penalties in the game, two aside. Listowel was 0-2 and London 1-2 with Kielt’s goal late in the third.
Game 4 will be in Listowel Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. Advanced tickets will be sold between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. at the Steve Kerr Memorial Complex.
Game 5 is in London at 7:30 p.m Wednesday night.

Game 3 between Elmira and Caledonia was postponed for the second consecutive night. Game 3 will now be Monday night in Caledonia. The Corvairs have a 2-0 series lead.
