For the second straight weekend, Kincardine had a golden opportunity to gain some ground on the league leaders. For the second consecutive weekend, the Bulldogs gifted up some very valuable points.

"You have to play hard every night," said Kincardine head coach Shawn Burrows. "There are no easy games in this league."

Wolves beat Lancers 3-1

A hat trick from Cody Britton was enough to give the Ripley Wolves a 3-1 win over the Lucknow Lancers Saturday night in WOAA Senior AA hockey action.

Britton scored once in each period in Lucknow to move the Wolves to 7-6-1 on the season. It was Ripley’s only game of the weekend after a Friday night game in Clinton against the third place Radars was postponed due to some severe winter weather.

I am writing this letter with such gratitude for the wonderful emergency care given to me at the Kincardine Hospital.

I am so indebted to Dr. Daniel Soong, who diagnosed a life threatening condition, and made the prompt decision to transport me to University Hospital in London. Not only did he confirm the reason for my distress but he accompanied me, along with the ER nurse and the two EMS attendants, to the hospital in London.

We are very fortunate to have a physician of such high calibre and compassion in Kincardine. I shall be forever grateful!
