Nats win one, lose one over the wee­kend

Vision (Canada) - - Sports - ALEXIA MARSILLO alexia.marsillo@eap.on.ca

The Ro­ck­land Na­tio­nals Junior A team came out with one loss and one vic­to­ry this past wee­kend – de­fea­ting the Kempt­ville 73s on Sa­tur­day, Oc­to­ber 21, and fal­ling to the Bro­ck­ville Braves the fol­lo­wing day, Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 22.

Al­though the team lost the game on Sun­day, it was still a mo­ral vic­to­ry – ha­ving rai­sed over $500 for the Breast Can­cer So­cie­ty.

The Nats cap­tain, Drew Shields, ope­ned the sco­ring for the team with his goal in the first per­iod, as­sis­ted by Cole La­voie. Mi­chael Kea­ting put in the se­cond goal for the Nats, while Con­nor Beat­ty put away the ga­me­win­ning goal in the first few mi­nutes of the third per­iod.

Goa­lie Sean Storr al­so had a big night, stop­ping 31 out of 33 shots that came his way, while the Nats put up 28 shots against Kempt­ville.

Drew Shields was na­med the third star of the game, while Cole La­voie ear­ned the first star for his two as­sists.

Aa­ron Bri­se­bois, Drew Shields and Shane Spen­cer each sco­red a goal for the Nats du­ring their Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 22nd game against the Braves.

Al­though the Nats fell short to the Braves 4-3, they did ma­nage to raise $519 for the Breast Can­cer So­cie­ty.

The team al­so en­cou­ra­ged their fans at the Ro­ck­land CIH Are­na to wear pink in ho­nor of de­vo­ting the game to the Breast Can­cer cause.

Aa­ron Bri­se­bois was na­med se­cond star of the game for his goal and one as­sist, while An­drew Gar­vis and Jor­di Jef­fer­son of the Braves were na­med the third and first stars of the game, res­pec­ti­ve­ly.

This leaves the Nats re­cord at (11-6-1-1). The Ro­ck­land Nats will then hit the road to take on the Ot­ta­wa Junior Se­na­tors next on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 25 at 11:45 a.m., the Haw­kes­bu­ry Hawks on Sa­tur­day, Oc­to­ber 28 and the Na­van Grads on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 29.

Sa­tur­day’s game against the Hawks has been mo­ved to the Ro­ck­land are­na due to the tem­po­ra­ry clo­sure of the Bob Hart­ley Com­plex in Haw­kes­bu­ry – the Hawks will still be the host team and the Nats, the vi­si­ting team.

L’équipe des Na­tio­nals de Ro­ck­land Junior A a connu une dé­faite et une vic­toire la se­maine der­nière, bat­tant les 73s de Kempt­ville le sa­me­di 21 oc­tobre et tom­bant aux mains des Braves de Bro­ck­ville, le di­manche 22 oc­tobre. Même si l’équipe a per­du la par­tie di­manche, c’était tou­jours une vic­toire mo­rale - ayant re­cueilli plus de 500 $ pour la So­cié­té du can­cer du sein. Ce­la laisse le re­cord des Nats à (11-6-1-1). Les Nats pren­dront la route pour af­fron­ter les Sé­na­teurs junior d’Ot­ta­wa le mer­cre­di 25 oc­tobre, les Hawks de Haw­kes­bu­ry le sa­me­di 28 oc­tobre et les Grads de Na­van le di­manche 29 oc­tobre.
