Silver Stick champions!

The goal gave Kincardine its second straight peewee title at the tournament and its 10th championship in 23 years.

Kincardine trailed this extremely entertaining game 2-0, but fought back to tie the game with eight minutes remaining and force overtime.

Kincardine dominated the first period, but Tavistock scored the only goal of the frame on a fluke bounce with three minutes left. Tyler Stock got credit for the goal, which bounced off a skate and past Ethan Primeau.

The Kincardine Legion peewees are the lone local team remaining in the 23rd annual Kincardine Regional Silver Stick.

Kincardine finished even with Tavistock in Group 1 play, but will face the top team from Group 2- Ayr - due to a tie-breaker of goals for and against.

Tavistock will face Listowel in the other peewee B semi-final game, which is in progress in Tiverton. The peewee finals will be played tomorrow (Wednesday) at 1:30 p.m. at the Davidson Centre in Kincardine.

In another supply room, Dawson shows what she packs in each Grub Tub. She developed the idea for the tubs 10 years ago. They are put in local schools for students to use at breakfast or lunch if they don’t have enough food at home to bring with them.

A Kincardine Christmas carol

They may sometimes seem like Scrooges, but Kincardine council members have a fun side to them too.

It was that sentiment that prompted deputy mayor Laura Haight and councillor Ken Craig to buy a singing telegram at the Kincardine Legion’s Deal or No Deal silent auction fundraiser in the spring.

Haight quipped that it was the best $100 she ever spent to hire the Kincardine Theatre Guild to write and perform a unique tune to wish Kincardine council and citizens a merry Christmas.

The Theatre Guild could make the song about whatever they wanted as long as it ended with a Christmas greeting, she said.

“Other than that, I didn’t see it, didn’t proof it, didn’t know anything that was going to be said. So it was as much a surprise to me as it was everybody else.”
