Four wins, a tie for SMMHA teams Monday

It was a great night for St. Marys minor hockey teams this past Monday, Dec. 17 at the PRC.

In five home games, SMMHA teams collected four wins and a tie.

The Dunny’s Source for Sports A-E Atoms started the night off on the right foot with a 3-1 Shamrock victory over St. Thomas Jr. Stars.

Grief Mahoney gave the Rock a 1-0 first-period lead. After St. Thomas tied it 1-1 at 6:34 of the third, Cody King scored what proved to be the winner just 50 seconds later. Harper Murrell then tacked on an insurance goal with 1:17 remaining to play.

Isaac Cousineau got the net win.

With the victory, the Dunny’s crew improved their record to 6-6-8 in the SHL standings. Matt King will soon be taking his Atoms to the International A-E Silver Stick tournament in Pelham, Jan. 10-13.

Five-point night for McCotter

Sparked by Declan McCotter’s five-point night, the Finnbilt ‘BB’ Novices skated to a 6-2 triumph over the Lucan Irish.

McCotter fired a hat trick, and also helped set up two goals. Another offensive standout for St. Marys was Dominic Marziali, who clicked for two goals and an assist. Graeme Froud scored the other goal for the home team, while playmakers were Lilly Hartwick with three assists and Will Jacobs with two helpers.

Owen Migchels and Austin Hodgson scored for Lucan, which led 1-0 after the first period but trailed 3-1 going into the third.

The Finnbilt squad is now 7-10-2 in the SHL’s Central division standings. The team is 4-4-2 in its last 10 league games.

Todd Dittmer’s Novices play the Oilers in Petrolia this Friday at 7 p.m. It will be a good tune-up for their Regional Silver Stick tournament in Pelham, starting Dec. 27.

Three third-period goals

The Home Building Centre A-E Peewees used three third-period goals to seal a 5-1 victory over St. Thomas Jr. Stars on Monday.

Braeden Roth had two of those last-period goals, while the singles came off the sticks of Hayden Brintnell, Ethan Connolly and Jaxon Fifield. Jonah Lariviere was a playmaker with two assists, and Trevor Aarts recorded the net win.

The Rock carried a slim 2-1 lead into the final 15 minutes. With the win, the HBC Peewees improved their SHL record to 7-12-1.

Sean Porter and his A-E Peewees recently received some good news. They’ve been invited to the International Silver Stick tournament in Pelham, Jan. 10-13.

Bantam girls win 3-1

The A.B.S. Tracs Inc. Bantam ‘C’ girls were the other SMMHA team to win on Monday night. Don Scott’s squad defeated the South Huron Sabres 3-1. No scoring details were available from that game.

The win improved St. Marys’ record to 6-4-1 atop the WOGHL Division 1 standings.

Coach Scott’s Bantams have two league games remaining (in January) before competing in their Silver Stick tournament at Saugeen Shores (Port Elgin), Feb. 1-3.

Frayne Bantams earn tie

The Frayne Custom Cabinets earned the tie Monday night, settling for a 2-2 Shamrock draw with Mooretown Jr. Flags.

The teams were tied 1-1 after two periods. Owen Boyd’s second of the game put the Rock ahead 2-1 early in the third. Ian Boyd picked up his second assist of the night on the goal.

Mooretown tied it with just 1:06 left on the clock.

The tie improved St. Marys’ first-place record to 13-4-3, keeping them one point ahead of Mt. Brydges Cougars (13-4-2) in the SHL standings.

Dale Switzer’s Frayne Bantams are now off until after Christmas.
