Ben Scheel of the OJHL Burlington Cougars fires pucks as former Toronto Maple Leaf Nathan Perrott looks on. Both Scheel, representing the Kincardine Fire Department, and Perrott, who suited up for the South-Bruce OPP, scored all five of their pucks to earn money for the food bank. Each team was allowed one ringer Saturday in the 2nd annual Guns 'N Hoses charity hockey game, enter Scheel and Perrott. The KFD came out on top this year, taking a 7-4 win at the Davidson Centre.

This goose looks less then impressed as it climbs out of the water and onto the ice Monday afternoon at Kincardine harbour. However, the geese are pleased that a bit of water is now accessible - it had been covered in ice up until last week. More ice will be disappearing this week, perhaps, with warmer temperatures expected mid-week. (Josh Howald photo)

Penetang takes Game 4 in OT

Game 5 tomorrow night in Wingham

This series has now become a best-of-three.

The Wingham Ironmen and the Penetang Kings are all even heading into Game 5 tomorrow night. Hayden Cole scored at 4:27 of overtime last night in Game 4 to give his Kings a 3-2 victory and tie Schmalz Cup provincial Junior C quarter-final series at two.

Wingham forced the extra period with a Ryan McNeil goal with six minutes left in the game. The Kings had been holding a one-goal lead after Matt Fischer scored short side with a snapper late in the middle stanza. Jamie Huber had scored earlier in the second, making it 1-1. Michael Paul scored the only goal of the first period for the Kings.

Wingham takes Game 1

Ironmen in Penetang tomorrow night

The Wingham Ironmen lead the Penetang Kings 1-0 after a 5-4 win last night in Game 1 of the Provincial Junior C quarter-finals.

The Kings were able to keep Aaron Armstrong off the scoresheet, but it wasn't enough to take the opening game of this series last night at the Wescast Community Complex. Alex Kuntz did much of the damage for the Ironmen with a hattrick, his final goal coming in the third period as the game winner.

Nice touch

Wingham finds the back of the net Sunday afternoon at the Davidson Centre to take a 1-0 lead on the Kincardine atom girls. The atoms will wrap up the season next weekend with the WOAA tournament, hosted by Saugeen Shores. (Josh Howald photo)

Seventh heaven

Western League to crown a champion tonight in Wingham

It all comes down to one game, tonight, for all the marbles.

The Wingham Ironmen and the Walkerton Hawks will meet tonight (Saturday) at 7:30 p.m. in Wingham to determine which organization will represent the Western Junior C Hockey League in the Tubby Schmalz All-Ontario playoffs and wear the Western League crown.

Tonight's rubber match became necessary after the Ironmen won Game 6 of this championship series last night in Walkerton. Wingham was up 5-2 at one point, and the Hawks battled back furiously to tie the score. They couldn't bury the equalizer, however, and this series willl go the distance.

Too cold to be done

There is stilll ice time to be found in Kincardine, depending on where you look. (Josh Howald photo)
