Attack in Windsor tonight

Bernath wins Owen Sound tickets in today’s draw

Derrick Bernath will have to wait until Saturday, at least, to see the Owen Sound Attack in action.

Bernath won the latest draw for Attack tickets today (Thursday) for contestants in the Independent’s NHL Hockey Pool. He also received a $10 gift certificate for Crabby Joe’s in Kincardine.

Owen Sound is on the road tonight, playing its first of three Ontario Hockey League games in as many days. Bernath can use his tickets for any regular season home game this season, including Saturday night when the Attack returns to the Harry Lumley Bayshore Centre to face the Kitchener Rangers. It’s the final game before the OHL breaks for Christmas holidays.

Knights score a dozen on WDSS

Boys hockey team remains undefeated

The Kincardine District Secondary School boys hockey team scored early and often in a rout of the Walkerton District Secondary School Raiders Tuesday afternoon.

With the win yesterday in Kincardine, the Knights are still undefeated and lead the Bluewater Athletic Association with a 4-0-1 record.

KDSS, playing without several key players, took a 5-0 first period lead and never looked back in a 12-2 rout of WDSS. It's the second time Kincardine has beat the Raiders in as many weeks - and these teams will meet again next Wednesday in Walkerton.
