Twin brothers Alex (1, 2) and Paul (1, 2) Christopoulos combined for eight points as the Don Mills Flyers kept rolling, defeating the wild card entry North Central Predators 8-3.
The slightly younger of the two, forward Alex Christopoulos racked up two goals and three assists in the win as Don Mills outshot North Central 54-15.
“That was a hard-hitting game, both teams really competed,” said Christopoulos. “We had to battle for pucks and work for the win today. It’s a good feeling to be 2-0 at this point.”
Edward Moskowitz (2, 3) potted a pair of late markers while Shane Wright (2) and Stevie Li (1) also tallied as Don Mills scored three power play goals on the afternoon.
“We don’t want to settle with where we’re at right now,” Christopoulos continued. “We have to keep pushing and not let our foot off the gas because there’s a lot of hockey left.”
Cole Patey (1), Ian Phillips (1) and Ryan Bath (1) scored North Central goals while Coulter Taylor was busy in the crease, providing 46 saves in the loss.
The Preds are back in action against the OMHA ETA opponent York-Simcoe Express at 8:45pm. Don Mills looks to stay perfect against the Windsor Jr. Spitfires at 9:15pm.
