#55 Joel Tinney

The Beach Boys travelled to Barrie (Innisfil actually) to battle the Lakeshores and bounce back from a very disappointing loss to Mimico on Friday night. Tonight marked the long awaited Beaches Jr. A debut of offensive spark plug #55 Joel Tinney. Tinney was acquired at the start of the season from Kitchener- Waterloo along with defender Zach McCulligh.

The first period started at an even pace with Barrie opening the scoring at the 12 minute mark. Barrie would go up 2-0 before Anthony Joaquim scored for the Beach. John St. John would score his first of the game to send the Beach Boys into the first intermission tied 2-2.

The Beach Boys would begin to take control in second period our scoring Barrie 4-2 in the frame. Goals came from St. John who sniped his second and third goals of the game, Joaquim put away his second and Jordan Goddard added one of his own. Beaches up 6-4 into the third period.

The Beaches offence blasted the Lakeshores in the third frame putting up 7. St. John scored his 4th of the contest, Joaquim scored his hat-trick goal and Goddard scored his second of the game. Solo markets came from Aaron Forster, Tristan Hanna, Matt Clearwater and Ryan MacSpadyen. The Beaches defence held Barrie to two goals in the period to secure the 13-6 victory.

Player of the game went to Beaches #6 Mitch Gustavsen for a terrific heart and soul effort on defence. Starting goalie Michael Lalani won his 7th game of the season making 32 saves. With the win the Beaches clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 2006. The Beaches travel to Orangeville on Friday night before wrapping up the regular season hosting Kitchener on July 5.
