Weekend split for Bulldogs

Bounce back from Friday loss in big way

By Josh Howald

Safe to say that a Friday night loss in Hanover didn't sit well with the Nicol Insurance Kincardine Bulldogs.

Kincardine bounced back from a 4-2 road loss to the Barons on Sunday with an 11-2 drubbing of the Goderich Flyers Sunday afternoon.

The weekend split leaves the Bulldogs in second place overall at 10-3-1 in the Western Junior C League standings, four points back of the Walkerton Hawks with a game in hand.

Friday night at the P&H Centre, Kincardine carried a 2-1 lead on the Barons to the final 10 minutes of action. But Justin Graham scored back-to-back goals for Hanover three minutes apart to put Hanover in front 3-2. Jarrett Kuntz added an empty net goal to make the final score 4-2 with 35 seconds left on the clock.

Wolves edged out by 81s

Two home games this weekend for Wolves

By Josh Howald

The Ripley Wolves gave the defending WOAA North Division champs all they could handle, but were edged out Friday night in Drayton.

The first place Mapleton-Minto 81s scored once in the first period and again in the second period to take a 2-0 lead on the Wolves Friday night. Ripley battled back with a power play goal midway through the third period, but the 81s added an empty net goal to seal a 3-1 win in WOAA Senior AA hockey action and remain undefeated.

Minto-Mapleton is now 6-0 on the season and all alone in first place, while the Wolves drop to 3-2, good for fourth overall in the WOAA North Division.

Beautiful property

We would like to congratulate the developers of the condos at the corner of Saratoga Road and Mahood-Johnston Drive.  Their landscaping is very pleasing to the eyes. The many trees are placed so they enhance the property beautifully.


As we walk by, almost daily, we have watched the development of the complex which is nearing completion. You are to be commended.


Jim & Shirley Shaw, Kincardine
