Sco­tians at East Hants, home to Blues

The News (New Glasgow) - - SPORTS -

TREN­TON — The Pic­tou County Sco­tians will start their week­end with a game Fri­day in East Hants.

The Sco­tians (3-1-1) will take on the Pen­guins in a Nova Sco­tia Ju­nior Hockey League road game, be­fore their usual Sun­day night con­test at home, this week against the win­less Cum­ber­land County Blues.

The Blues have yet to reg­is­ter a sin­gle point in their first four games of the sea­son. Pic­tou County had three wins and a shootout loss in their last four games, and on Fri­day they will face a Pen­guins team that has had lit­tle trou­ble find­ing the net; the Pen­guins (6-1) have scored 40 goals in their seven games — tops in the league — and five of the league’s top six point-get­ters wear the Pen­guins’ uni­form, led by Quinn MacDon­ald (7G, 9A). “Ob­vi­ously, we’ll (fo­cus on) de­fence first,” against East Hants, Sco­tians for­ward Ja­cob Pentz said this week.

“Try­ing to keep their goals to a min­i­mum, get­ting out of our own end ef­fi­ciently and in their end more of­ten.” Pentz is com­ing off a three­goal night last Sun­day against the Antigonsh Bull­dogs and leads the Sco­tians with five goals and three as­sists.
