Wolves win, lose in OT

Gearing up for playoffs

The Ripley Wolves won in overtime and lost in overtime on the weekend.

Friday night, Huron-Kinloss mayor Mitch Twolan scored the overtime winner as the Wolves beat the Walkerton Capitals 6-5 at home. Sunday afternoon in Ripley, the Wolves were downed 4-3 by Palmerston in what may have been a preview of the first round of WOAA playoffs.

Sunday’s game completed the regular season for Ripley, who finished with a 11-7-1-1 record with 24 points. Ripley cannot move in the standings, and will play either Palmerston or Shelburne in the first round of the WOAA playoffs. The 81s have two games remaining, while the Muskies have one game remaining.


Knights beaten in final regular season game

To host PDHS in quarter-final Feb. 4

The Kincardine District Secondary School boys hockey team fell short in its bid for an undefeated season.

A shorthanded Knights team was soundly beaten by the Sacred Heart High School Crusaders last Tuesday. It was a make-up game after weather forced the cancellation of the game originally scheduled for the previous Friday.

Kincardine fell behind 3-0 in the first period and never recovered. The final score was 8-3.

Still, the Knights are assured home ice until the Bluewater Athletic Association championship.

Kincardine and Sacred Heart finished in a tie for first place with identical 6-1 records. Since SHHS won last Tuesday’s game, they will face the eighth place St. Mary’s Mustangs (0-7) in the quarter-finals.


Dunlop to coach Canada

She already had the ink, now she has a coat to match.

Kincardine’s Julie Dunlop is one of four coaches selected by Special Olympics Canada to lead our figure skaters at the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Boise, Idaho.

The games, which begin Feb. 2, will be Dunlop’s first world championship event. She got a tattoo of a Maple Leaf with a skate at last year’s National Championships.
