The South Dundas Novice C Lions ran into a couple of hot goaltender in Upper Canada Minor Hockey League action in their last two matches and ended up giving up a pair of 4-0 loss.
The Lions travelled to Westport last Saturday, November 8th to play the hosting Rideaus who proved too much for the Lions as they came away with the 4-0 victory.
The young Lions played well, coming up short on numerous scoring opportunities.
Ruby Jansen was a force to be reckoned with at both ends of the ice, earning her “Lion of the Game” honours.
The Lions played host to Kemptville 4 this past Saturday, November 15th.
The powerhouse Panthers broke out quickly to a 3-0 lead in the first and never looked back, on route to a 4-0 win.
The Lions just couldn’t seem to solve Kemptville’s hot goalie, who stymied them at ever chance.
Kade Van Beilen was denied on a glorious opportunity early in the third when he couldn’t quite lift the rubber over the goalie’s outstretched arm, as the defenceman hauled him down from behind. Van Beilen’s line mate, Jack Croteau gave the opposing team fits as he always seemed to be on the puck.
Lanie Verhey and her Legion of Doom line also played an impressive game, controlling the play in both ends of the rink.
“Lion of the Game” was given to power forward Owen MacDonald.
“Number 22 played a great game for us,” coach Froats stated after the game. “He lugged the puck all night and just missed on multiple scrambles around the net.”
The Lions face off against County rival, North Dundas 1, in a midweek tilt before hosting them back at home Saturday for the much anticipated Lions Day.
