They’re stingy bunch

De­fence, not of­fence, hot topic in P.E.I. ju­nior C ac­tion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - Lynx 2, Sabres 0 Aces 3, Met­ros 1

Goals were had to come by Sun­day in the Razzy’s P.E.I. Ju­nior C Hockey League led by the South­side MacDon­ald’s Ex­ca­va­tion EF MacPhee Lynx’s 2-0 shutout vic­tory over the Belfast Down East Auto Parts Sabres in Belfast.

Later, the Tig­nish Perry’s Con­struc­tion Aces bested the Sher­wood Met­ros 3-1 in Tig­nish.

South­side’s win moved it to within four points of the league­lead­ing Sabres.

Belfast raised $1,261 at Sun­day’s game in sup­port of Cal­lum Thom­son and his fam­ily.

Fol­low­ing is a re­cap of the games:

In Belfast, Colton Daw­son and Brady Van­dervelden pro­vided just enough of­fence for the Lynx to se­cure the road win.

South­side goalie Sean MacPhee was a brick wall, stop­ping 48 shots for his league-lead­ing third no-no of the sea­son. His 10-4 record also tops the cir­cuit.

Mean­while, Ivan MacPhail and Jake Larsen chipped in as­sists for the Lynx.

South­side’s Ben Lad­ner kicked aside 24 shots in the loss.

South­side went 1-for-1 on the power play and led 1-0 af­ter the first pe­riod and 2-0 at the se­cond in­ter­mis­sion.

Two goals in the se­cond pe­riod broke open a tie game and were enough for the Aces to nab the win on home ice.

Colton Gal­lant and Con­nor Dil­lon did the hon­ours in the se­cond, while Tig­nish’s Tyson Car­ragher (1-1) and Sher­wood’s Jake Arse­nault ex­changed goals in the first.

The game was tied 1-1 af­ter the first frame. Sher­wood out­shot the Aces 31-22, but went 0-4 on the power play. Tig­nish was 1-for1 with the ex­tra man.

Kris­ten Cle­mens earned the goaltending win over Blake Arse­nault.
