After losing seven games in a row, the Shelburne Senior AA Muskies finally came out the plus side with a 3–2 win over the Shallow Lake Crushers on Saturday (Nov. 23) night at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex.

The Crushers have had a disappointing year so far after nine games in.

Opening the season with a 6–2 win over the Ripley Wolves back on October 11, the Muskies went into a slump.

Three more games in October ended with losses to Shallow Lake, Elora, and Durham.

The move into November saw the month star with the Shelburne squad taking it on the chin with a 7–1 loss to Elora.

Three more losses in November dropped the Muskies to the basement of the North Division of Western Ontario Athletic Association Senior League.

The two points won on Saturday places them one game ahead of the Goderich Pirates who in the bottom of the League.

Leading the Muskies in points is Black Lovell with three goals and seven assists after seven games – good for ten points.

Forward Tristan Fairbarn and Chris Greer are right behind with nine points each – both with five goals and four assists for the season.

The Elora Rocks are currently in first place in the WOAA North division with 18 points and an 8–3 record.

They are followed by the Saugeen Shores Winterhawks with a 7–2 record and the Mapleton–Minto 81’s in third place with 12 points and a 6–2 record.

The Muskies will be back in action on home ice this Saturday, November 30, at the Centre Dufferin Recreation Complex when they will host the Ripley Wolves.

The puck drop is scheduled for 8:00 p.m.
