There was plenty of great hockey ac­tion in Antigo­nish last week­end (Nov. 23 to 25) dur­ing the Leroy Macdonald Me­mo­rial Hockey Tour­na­ment, hosted the Atom

‘AA’ Bull­dogs.

Un­for­tu­nately for the home side, their 2-2 round-robin record wasn’t quite enough to qualify them for the cross-over play­off round, which did see the Cape Bre­ton West Is­lan­ders ad­vance to take on the Hal­i­fax Hawks.

The Is­lan­ders would drop a close 3-2 de­ci­sion to the Hawks while the Che­bucto At­lantics downed the Pic­tou County in over­time Crush­ers, also by a 3-2.

In the fi­nal, the At­lantics de­feated their HRM coun­ter­parts 6-0.

The Bull­dogs be­gan the tour­na­ment Fri­day af­ter­noon with a 2-0 loss to the Is­lan­ders, but fol­lowed it up with an of­fen­sive ex­plo­sion later in the day as they de­feated the North­side Vik­ings 10-3.

Scor­ing for Antigo­nish in the con­test were; Will Chisholm with three, Ben Ka­vanaugh and Theo Red­dick with two each and sin­gles by Dun­can An­der­son, Ben Brown and Brett Con­nors.

The Bull­dogs de­feated the East Hants Pen­guins the next morn­ing by a score of 6-4. Goal scorers were; Red­dick and Colby Fleet with two each and sin­gles by Con­nors and Seth Macgil­livray.

The Bull­dogs would drop a 3-1 de­ci­sion to the Crush­ers later in the day with Ka­vanaugh scor­ing Antigo­nish’s lone goal.
