North Dundas Devils tops in County hockey

For the second consecutive year, the North Dundas Devils are the holders of the Dundas County High School Hockey Cup following the final leg of action between the two Dundas County high schools, North Dundas and Seaway District, here on Friday, March 23.

In the final action, the North Dundas boys carved out an 8-0 victory over the Seaway Spartans to sweep the two game series. The Devils registered their first win on Morrisburg ice on Friday, February 24 by a 5-1 count.

Friday the Devils went up 1-0 in the first period, and then pushed it to 5-0 in the second period.

While the Seaway boys were unable to get much going against their opponents, the Seaway girls avenged themselves, for their opening game loss, with a 4-2 victory.

The Devils won the opening game in Morrisburg by a 2-0 count.

This time out the two played to a 1-1 first period tie, and Seaway moved ahead 3-2 in the second period as they headed for the 4-2 victory.

Lesley-Ann Tupper led the Seaway effort with two goals and singles came from the sticks of Vicki Van Hoof and Michaela Morrow.

The County Cup is awarded to the winning school based on the overall results from the home and home series. 

Although a similar hockey setup existed between the two school several years back, it was only re-introduced last year.

This also marked just the second year that Seaway has iced teams in the SD&G high school league.
