Hodkinson nets four for Firefighters 

By Pat Payton

Two St. Marys minor hockey teams defeated visiting London Bandits teams in Shamrock-Alliance action Wednesday night at the PRC.

The results, however, don’t count in the SHL standings.

Led by the dangerous Hodkinson line, the Firefighter ‘BB’ Peewees doubled their London

counterparts 6-3. Captain Ryan Hodkinson powered the Rock offence with four goals and one assist. Finn Stewart added a goal and two assists, while Jayden Tipping had the other St. Marys single.

Peyton Lobb was the playmaker with three assists, giving the Hodkinson-Stewart-Lobb trio 11 points for the night.

The teams were tied 1-1 after the first period, but Firefighters led 5-3 going into the third. Carter Froggett picked up the net win for the home team.

Dwain Smith’s Firefighters are back in Shamrock action on Wednesday, Dec. 5, hosting South Huron Sabres at 7:10 p.m. The Rock currently sits in a tie for first place in the SHL’s Central division standings with a 9-0-2 record. It’s the first of three league games in three nights.

Netminder Walsh stops Bandits

The Golf and Country Club ‘BB’ Atoms also defeated the Bandits Wednesday, blanking the London Atoms 3-0.

A first-period goal by Simon Greig stood up as the game winner. Sam Johnson and Simon Taylor added second-period tallies for the Rock, and goalie Julian Walsh recorded the shutout.

Reg Clinton’s G&CC Atoms, who are 7-3 in the Shamrock League’s Central standings, host their South Huron counterparts on Dec. 5, starting at 6 p.m.

Lancers catch Bantams

In a Shamrock League game Wednesday, it was an off-night for the ANAF ‘BB’ Bantams who dropped a 6-2 decision to the Lambeth Lancers.

Kaleb Schalk and Carter Reid scored for the Rock, who trailed 2-1 after the first period and 4-2 going into the third. Six different players scored for the visiting Lancers.

It was the ANAF squad’s second league loss in a row, leaving them with a 9-4-1 record in the Bantam Central standings and in a second-place tie with Lambeth (9-3-1). Everyone is chasing the first-place Strathroy Jr. Rockets (13-1-1).

Brandon Boyd and his St. Marys Bantams host South Huron in SHL action on Dec. 5 at 8:30 p.m. Sabres are in first place in the Bantam North-South division with a 10-1-2 record.

Firefighters earn road win

In a Shamrock game Nov. 27 in Mt. Brydges, the Firefighter ‘BB’ Peewees skated to a 3-1 win over the home-town Cougars.

Scoring the Rock goals were Finn Stewart, defenceman Lucan Vernooy and Colton Henderson, and Josh Ballantyne recorded the net win.

Just 29 seconds after Firefighters went up 2-0 midway through the third period, Mt. Brydges pulled to within a goal. Henderson’s goal with 3:55 to play clinched the road win for Dwain Smith’s crew.

In 11 league games to date, Firefighters have given up only 17 goals against.

The Peewee BBs are competing in the Tabacco Town Tournament in Delhi this weekend, Nov. 30-Dec. 2.
