Pilling and Sinclair score 7 points each in our 7-5 win over The Gulls


After suffering a 5-4 lose on Saturday to the Western Hurricanes, we bounced back with a 7-5 win over The Gulls lead by Pilling, Sinclair and Ford. Pilling had his 2nd hat-trick in three weeks and added 4 assists for a 7 point night. Sinclair also scored 7 points with 2 goals and 5 assists. Linemate Ford popped in a goal and 3 helpers as well for a 4 point night.  

We trailed 4-3 heading into the 3rd period but outscored the Gulls 4-1 to claim the victory on Matthew Burke's game winning Power Play goal. A MacDonald added an apple. Stonehouse was solid between the pipes in a wide open game. 

On Saturday we fell behind 5-1 early in the 3rd but fought back to make it 5-4,  only to come-up 1 goal short. Sinclair with 2 goals and 2 assists, Pilling with 1 goal and 3 helpers lead the scoring. Ford scored our 4th goal and Sudds added an apple. Stonehouse and Shimon shared the goaltending duties. 

We now sit 9-9 on the season. We will not be playing Dec 4th or 5th, so we have a weekend off. We then finish with 4 games in December before our Christmas break. We will play the Valley for two Dec 11 at 7:15 and Dec 12 at 11:15. The following week we will host the East Hants Rangers for two. December 18 at 7:15 and Dec 20th 11:15.
