Hurricanes blow past lakers, aces
the tillsonburg ‘canes finally made their home debut on their regular rink - the Kinsmen Memorial arena - at the tillsonburg community centre Friday, Oct. 6th with an impressive 11-2 win over the london lakers.
this very exciting game was led by Maxsim Korobeinikov (71) from russia, with a three-goal night and one assist. He was complimented by three more four-point players: Kyran Karol (7) from red deer, ab, griffin sinden (27) and gray sinden (20), both from tillsonburg! Multiple points were also earned by noah demelo (24) from london, dallas routh (97) from alberta, and connor Madill (22) from Mt. brydges. rookie sensation goalie noah acciaccaferri (1), from pickering, kept the boys inspired by not allowing any goals until late in the third period.
