Wolves lead Fish 2-0

Both North and South Finals even

By Josh Howald

The Ripley Wolves lead the Shelburne Muskies 2-0 in the WOAA Senior A semi-finals.

The Wolves took the series lead Friday night at home with a 3-2 win in Game 1, followed by a 7-5 win Saturday night in Shelburne.

Friday night in the village, Brett Catto scored the game-winning goal with less than a minute remaining in the game. Corey McCrae assisted on the goal. It was Catto's second goal - he buried a shorthanded goal from Drew Davidson three minutes earlier to knot the game at 2-2.

Sore losers

I find it very strange and disturbing that Union Gas is operating open houses this upcoming week in the three communities that have engaged EPCOR to carry out the role of bringing Natural Gas to our communities.


I was involved for years on this project and disappointed that Union Gas was not able to provide a viable proposal. The municipalities paid Union Gas thousands of dollars in the past to carry out a feasibility and costing study, in response to which Union offered to construct the lines at a cost of some $97,000,000, if the municipalities donated $87,000,000. Union would contribute $10,000,000 (10.3 per cent), but they would own 100 per cent and retain all profits. Not a viable financial alternative for our municipalities.
