Winning weekend for the Muskies




The Shelburne Senior AA Muskies have moved into second place in the North Division of the Western Ontario Athletic Association senior League after a pair of back to back wins over the weekend.
The Muskies are third place over all in the League.
After losing their first game of the season, the Muskies are turning it around with some strong performances and a good looking squad on the ice.
The Shelburne team hosted the Durham Thundercats at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex on Friday (Oct. 24) night in Shelburne.
Play an evenly matched game in the first period the Muskies got down to business and manged to leave the ice with an 8-5 win to end the night.
They didn't get much of a rest after Friday's game – the next night they were off to Lucknow to take on the Lancers.
Again the Muskies managed to leave the ice with a win after delivering an 8–6 win over the hometown team.
The winning win leaves the team with a 3–2 record – that includes lone loss in overtime to the Ripley Wolves on October 17.
It's still way too early in the season to see how thing are going to shake out but the Muskies are doing a good job on the ice this season. They are a very aggressive team and heavy on the forechecking in their opponent's zone.
So far, in the North division the Mapleton-Minto 81's are leading going undefeated after four games.
The Ripley Wolves follow Shelburne with a 3-1 record.
The Muskies will be on the road this Friday (Oct. 30) when the travel to Durham to take on the Thundercats.
They will be back on home ice at the CDRC the following night, Saturday, October 31, to hose the Shallow Lake Crushers.
Game time is 8 p.m.
