With Josh Martineau between the pipes, the South Dundas Major Midget B Rep Lions picked up their 10th win of the regular season over South Stormont, 6-1, here last Thursday night, December 5.
The Lions are now holding top spot in the Upper Canada Minor Hockey League’s East Division with 23 points, six points up on South Grenville and Cornwall who are tied with 17 points apiece.
Last Thursday night in Morrisburg, Cameron Michels and Tanner Hummel struck to give the Lions a 2-0 first period lead.
Aaron Smith and Drew Minish provided the assists on the Michels goal while Drew Minish and Michels helped out on the Hummel counter.
Nash Nesbitt made it 3-0 in the second period with Minish and Riley Black providing the assists.
Early in the third period, Jordan St. Louis pushed the Lions advantage to 4-0 with goaltender Martineau credited with the assist.
South Stormont spoiled Martineau’s shut out on a play that started with a shot from the point. The shot was deflected off a player in front of the net and on to the stick of an unguarded Stormont man at the far corner who buried it past Martineau.
The final Lions goal was scored by Josh Black from Minish and Toby Mullin for the 6-1 Lions win.
Next action for the Lions is this Thursday night, December 12 in Morrisburg at 8 p.m.
Correction: In a story that appeared in the December 4 issue of the Leader, it was incorrectly reported that a goal was scored against Brockville as the result of a great pinch and deke by Jordan Smail. The great play was in fact made by Jordan St. Louis.
