The South Dundas Novice B Lions dropped their home opener 6-4 against the visiting South Grenville Rangers.
The Rangers proved to be too much for the Lions again as they also lost to them in exhibition play.
Holden Hildebrant found the back of the net four times for the Rangers, and Justin Van Luit and Keaton Urquhart each added one in the winning effort.
Sean Nicolaassen had another offensive outburst for the Lions scoring all four goals for the home team.
On his first goal, Dryden Buter dug the puck out of the corner and passed to Spencer Barclay who made a nice touch pass across to Nicolaassen who one timed it into the back of the net.
On his second goal, Nicolaassen took the draw at centre straight ahead, split the defence, made a quick head fake on the goalie and slid it home.
He completed his hat trick on a nice play from Owen Paterson who chipped the puck into the corner. That allowed Nicolaassen to pick it up and get a shot off, from a bad angle, that beat the Rangers goalie on the short side.
Goal number four came on a backhander from the top of the slot that trickled its way through the goalie’s legs.
Paterson contributed the assist on the play battling for the puck and getting it across to Nicolaassen.
Defenceman Nathan Paulino took the Big Stick honours for the game with a couple of nice rushes, strong defensive play and some nice passes to move the puck up the ice.
The Lions are back at it Sunday at 1 p.m. in Morrisburg.
