It was a busy night at the PRC this past Monday, with five St. Marys minor hockey teams in action.

SMMHA teams won two games, tied one and lost another in Shamrock League action.

It was a big game for the Frayne Custom Cabinets A-E Bantams, who scored three third-period goals to pull out a come-from-behind 3-1 victory over Mt. Brydges Cougars. The win moved Dale Switzer's Bantams (9-2-2) one point ahead of Mt. Brydges (9-1-1) and into first place in the SHL standings.

Cougars led 1-0 after two periods. Scoring the third-period goals for the Rock were Jake Pfaff, captain Jake Littlejohn and Ian Boyd. Littlejohn’s goal, which came with 3:19 to play, was the winner. Boyd added an insurance goal with 59 seconds left on the clock. Jack Aarts posted the net win.

The St. Marys Bantams are now 8-1-1 in league play in the last 10 games. The Frayne squad hosts Strathroy Jr. Rockets on Monday, Nov. 26, starting at 8:30 p.m.

Donovan McGregor’s goal with 3:34 remaining in the third period snapped a 1-1 tie. Grier Mahoney scored the other St. Marys goal. The teams were tied 1-1 after two periods.

The win improved the Dunny’s Atoms’ record to 5-5-5 in the SHL standings. The Rock, which is now 4-2-4 in the last 10 league games, has scored 39 goals and allowed 39.
