Danny Weight’s five-point game led the Jr. Islanders past the Jr. Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 on Wednesday afternoon.

Weight had a hand in every Isles goal, scoring once while setting up four others, including a hat trick by linemate Matthew Crasa.

After a scoreless opening period, Crasa scored both Islanders goals in the second period, giving his team a 2-0 lead heading into the third. The Flyers answered early in the final frame, but Liam Devlin scored the eventual winner at 12:06, before Crasa completed the trick with an insurance marker 54 seconds later. Weight iced the game with the Islanders fifth goal.

The 5-2 margin puts the Islanders back in the win column and sets up a showdown with the Antoine Girouard Gaulois Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

Weight Leads Tournament Scoring

With six points in two games, Danny Weight leads the tournament in scoring. Weight, son of Islanders Assistant Coach Doug Weight, has one goal and five assists, including a five-point effort (1g/4a) against the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers on Wednesday.

Matthew Crasa, Weight’s linemate, is tied for first with four goals and third in tournament scoring with four points. Crasa is coming off a hat-trick performance on Wednesday.
