Rock teams have close battles with Jr. Rockets

By Pat Payton

A win, a tie and a loss for St. Marys minor hockey teams! All three Shamrock League games were very close Monday night at the PRC. They usually are when the Strathroy Jr. Rockets come to town.



Posting the win was the Frayne Custom Cabinets A-E Bantams, who defeated their Strathroy counterparts 1-0. It’s the third time the SHL rivals have met, and they’ve all been tight games.

Emmett Doupe’s second-period powerplay goal stood up as the game winner. Collecting assists were Jake Pfaff and captain Jake Littlejohn. The shutout went to Kiefer MacNeil.

For the first-place Frayne Bantams, the win boosts their Shamrock record to 11-3-2. In 16 league games to date, Dale Switzer’s charges have allowed only 24 goals.

“Defensively, the whole team has had a good season,” coach Switzer said.

The Bantams’ next home games are Monday, Dec. 3 against Mt. Brydges and Monday, Dec. 10 against Ingersoll, both starting at 8:30 p.m.

Dunny’s Atoms earn tie

Earning the tie Monday was the Dunny’s Source for Sports A-E Atoms, who battled the Jr. Rockets to a 1-1 draw.

Nic Brintnell put St. Marys ahead 1-0 with a second-period goal from Charlie Bender. Strathroy scored the tying marker with just 10 seconds remaining in the third from a scramble. It spoiled Isaac Cousineau’s bid for a shutout.

The tie gives Matt King’s Rock a 5-5-6 record in the SHL standings, leaving them one point behind Strathroy (7-2-3).

The Dunny’s Atoms have home games the next two Mondays, Dec. 3 against Dorchester and Dec. 10 against Lambeth--both starting at 6 p.m.

HBC Peewees lose heartbreaker

The Home Building Centre A-E Peewees were very close to picking up a single point against Strathroy, but lost a 5-4 heartbreaker when the Jr. Rockets scored shorthanded with just two seconds left to play.

Oliver McHugh and Jonah Lariviere paced the St. Marys attack, each with a goal and two assists. Colton Hawkins and Bodi DeBoer had the other singles.

Strathroy held period leads of 2-1 and 4-3. Lariviere tied it up for the Rock in the third. Tyson McQuinn scored the late winner for the Jr. Rockets, giving him a hat trick for the night.

The HBC Peewees slipped to 5-9-1 in the Shamrock standings with the loss, while second-place Strathroy improved to 10-1-1.

Sean Porter’s A-E Peewees also play the next two Mondays at home--Dec. 3 against Dorchester and Dec. 10 against Lambeth. Both
