Flyers quick start sinks Vipers
The Leamington Flyers stormed out to a two goal lead before the game was five minutes old en route to a 5-2 victory over the LaSalle Vipers in front of 853 Wednesday at the Vollmer.
Leamington's Mitch Amante and Matthew Opblinger scored barely three minutes apart early in the first period to chase Vipers starter Paolo Battisti.
Graham Pickard cut the Flyers lead in half just over a minute after the goaltending change, but Leamington restored their two goal lead heading into the first intermission when Kyle Quick beat Eli Billing.
Amante and Tyler Duarte scored second period goals to increase the Flyers lead.
Nathan Savage finished off a nice cross-crease pass from Manny Silverio, but LaSalle would come no closer.
Billing made 26 saves in relief but was credited with the loss, while Trevor Wheaton made 27 saves for the win.
The Vipers fell to 13-11-0, while the first place Flyers improved to 21-5-0.
LaSalle's next game is on the road in Strathroy Saturday night where they'll take on the Rockets. Game time is 7:30 pm.
