The Shelburne Senior Muskies are ending the year on a high note after winning their fourth game in a row.

The squad travelled to Shallow Lake on Friday, December 1, to take on the Crushers and left the ice with a 9 – 4 win.

The Muskies were in control of the first period out-shooting the Crushers 19-5 and taking a 3-1 lead by the time the period ended.

Luke Richardson opened the scoring in the first period.

The Crushers tied it up just over a minute later.

Shelburne captain, Chris Greer scored to put the Muskies back in the lead.

Defenceman, Travis Knight scored on a powerplay to end the scoring for the first frame.

It was the second period that really blew the game wide open when they scored five times to take an 8-2 lead.

Muskies goals came from Andrew Whalen for two, Luke Richardson, Chris Greer, and Jeff Noseworthy.

Again, the Muskies put more shots on net out-shooting the Crushers 17-6 for the period.

Returning for the final period, the Crushers put up a good effort trying to get back into the game, but the Muskies kept up the pressure.

The final goal came from Mitch Scott to end the game with a Shelburne win.

Muskies goalie, Malcolm Young picked up the win.

Noteworthy for this game is the fact that the Muskies didn’t receive any penalties for the game.

The win gave the Muskies a 9-6 record for the season which leaves them in seventh place out of 14 teams.

The Ripley Wolves are hanging on to first place with a 15-2 record.

They are followed by the Clinton Radars, the Durham Thundercats, and the Mapleton-Minto 81’s.

The Muskies will return to home ice at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex on Saturday, January 5, when they will host the Tavistock Royals.

Game time is 8:00 p.m.
