It was a great start for several St. Marys minor hockey teams, who kicked off their Shamrock League regular schedules last Monday, Sept. 25 at the PRC.

Four SMMHA teams hit the ice, and all four skated off with victories. In two of the wins, Rock teams posted shutouts.


Novice AE win big vs Dorchester


In the largest margin of the night, Dan Murrell’s Stonetown Foodland A-E Novices rolled to a lopsided 12-1 victory over Dorchester Dragons.

Leading the scoring parade for St. Marys was Ben Ewing with seven goals. His final three goals came in a span of less than two minutes in the third period.

The Rock built period leads of 5-1 and 7-1.

Harper Murrell added a pair of goals, while the singles came off the sticks of Brody Cox, Parker Levy and Mack Hern.

Ben Pearce was the playmaker, collecting three assists, while Dominic Marziali and Jaxon Brown earned two helpers apiece.

The Foodland Novices host Petrolia Oilers on Monday, Oct. 9 at 6 p.m.

Atom AE Wheelers click for three points

The Dunny’s Source for Sports A-E Atoms got their season off to a roaring start with a 6-0 win over Petrolia Oilers.

Sean Porter’s Rock got goals from six different players. Ty Wheeler and Connor Wheeler each had a goal and two assists to pace the offence.

The other singles went to Jared Ballantyne, Brody Higham, Sam Johnson and Evan Wolfkamp. Grayson Porter chipped in two assists.

After a scoreless first period, St. Marys opened up a 2-0 lead in the middle frame. Three of the third-period goals came in a span of just two minutes midway through the frame.

The shutout went to Isaac Cousineau, who went the distance.

Oilers took the only penalty of the contest.

With three of their next four games on the road, the Dunny’s A-E Atoms travel to Strathroy this Friday to meet the Jr. Rockets at 6:45 p.m.

Novice BB's McAllister leads way

Bill Scheuermann and his Finnbilt ‘BB’ Novices started their SHL regular campaign with a 2-0 win over visiting Petrolia.

Kolton McAllister was the scoring star for the Rock with a first-period goal and he also helped set up Hayden Wright’s insurance marker in the middle frame. Danny Dittmer also earned an assist.

The shutout went to Vaughn Barr.

Both sides took one minor penalty.

The Finnbilt Novices host rival Dorchester Dragons on Monday, Oct. 9 at 7:10 p.m.

Peewee BB Firefighters edge Oilers

The fourth SMMHA team to win their opener last Monday was the Firefighter ‘BB’ Peewees.

Dwain Smith’s squad skated to a hard-fought 2-1 decision over Petrolia.

It was a penalty-free game.

Rock defenceman Rourke McEwan opened the scoring with an unassisted goal early in the second period.

Winger Finn Stewart fired what proved to be the game winner at 7:33 of the third from Peyton Lobb. Less than a minute later, Oilers pulled to within a goal but that’s as close as the visitors would get.

Firefighters are back in league action when they host Dorchester on Monday, Oct. 9 at 8:20 p.m.

Exhibition loss for Minor Midgets

The Legion Minor Midgets hosted New Hamburg Huskies for a Tri-County League exhibition game on Sunday, Sept. 24.

The teams were tied 1-1 after two periods, but Huskies out-scored the Rock 3-1 in the final 15 minutes to skate off with a 4-2 victory.

Nicholas Black scored twice for New Hamburg. Eric Taylor and Blake Boreham replied for St. Marys, which took eight of the 13 minor penalties.
