Wolves beaten by Elora, Saugeen Shores

The Ripley Wolves are back at .500 after losses to Elora and Saugeen Shores on the weekend.

Saturday night in Port Elgin, the Wolves fell 7-3 to the Saugeen Shores Winterhawks in front of almost 700 people.

“It wasn’t too bad of a game,” said Ripley goaltender Scott MacSween, who started the previous night in Ripley against the Elora Rocks. “We had a 2-1 lead early in the game, and they came back to go ahead 3-2. They kind of broke the game open in the third period.”

A good racket

KDSS tennis team has won three straight BAA titles

It’s hard to argue with results.

These results say that the Kincardine District Secondary School tennis program has won three consecutive Bluewater Athletic Association (BAA) championships.

KDSS claimed its third straight overall tennis title in Southampton Oct. 7 on the strength of tourney wins by the doubles team, the mixed doubles team and solid finishes from several singles players.

The mixed doubles team of Lydia Treidlinger and Michael Yun won gold, as did the boys doubles team of Troy Campbell and Anirudha Panditrao.

Meanwhile, both Mohini Nema and Jakeb Siekierski advanced in singles play after second place finishes at the BAA championship, which was delayed a week due to weather.
