Led by Tyler Flack’s hat trick, the North York Rangers offence exploded against the Markham Royal to come out with a 8-2 on Sunday (Oct. 7) at the Hebert Carnegie Arena.

Less than two minutes later Aidan Casey took the Austin Brimmer pass and went top corner to extend the lead to 5-0. That marked the first of four assists for Brimmer on the afternoon. Markham was able to put one past Jett Alexander later in the frame.
Flack scored the next two goals in the game, one less than a minute into the third and the hat trick marker 15 minutes later. Leshuk registered North York season-high eighth goal 19 seconds later.
