The South Dundas “River Rat Treasures” Novice B Lions renewed their battle of Dundas County last Monday night in Chesterville tying their division rival North Dundas Demons, 4-4.
Playing their fifth game in three days, the Lion’s needed two third period goals to tie up the Demons. Kayne McCadden’s goal with 1:58 left in the third period proved to be the final goal in the 4-4 tie.
After winning the face-off back to the defense McCadden regained the puck and wristed a shot high in the air which hit a Demons defender and bounced directly into the net. Spencer Barclay and Trent Rae picked up assists.
Earlier in the third, McCadden stole the puck away from a defender and wristed a shot that bounced up and over the Demon’s goalie. Ben Lapier then jumped on the free puck shoveling it into the open net.
The Demons had gained a 4-2 lead early in the third period and had scored late in the second to break a 2-2 tie.
Owen Fetterly opened the Lions scoring on a pass from behind the net by Ben Lapier. Adam Barclay responded for the Demons beating Lion’s goalie Brendan Shaver.
In the second, the Demon scored first on a goal by Delaney Johnston. The Lions responded when Owen Fetterly cut off a Demon attacker at the Lion’s blue line and moved it quickly to Lapier who went the distance around a Demon defender and snuck a puck by Demons goalie Joshua Dagenias just inside the right post.
The Lion’s extended their unbeaten streak to eight on Sunday afternoon when they defeated the Brockville #1 Braves, 3-1. The Braves opened the scoring in the first period on a shot that Trent Rae tried to deflect away from the net. Shaver would shut the door the rest of the way with help from his defenceman Cassidy Bilmer.
The Lion’s drew even in the second period on a left wing break by Nolan Henry. Emytt Fetterly picked up an assist on the play.
The Lions took the lead in the third on the power play when Joshua Broad centred a pass to Henry in the slot but had it knocked away to where Ben Lapier was standing to net the game winning goal.
Lapier scored again moments later on a backhander. Spencer Barclay picked up the assist.
