Ma­roons to visit Stars

The Chatham Daily News - - SPORTS -

The Chatham Ma­roons will go for their sixth con­sec­u­tive win Fri­day when they visit the St. Thomas Stars.

They’ll also host the St. Marys Lin­colns at 7 p.m. Sun­day at Chatham Me­mo­rial Arena.

The Ma­roons be­gan their win­ning streak af­ter los­ing four of their first nine games.

“At the be­gin­ning of the year we were a lit­tle slow and then we made some line changes,” Ma­roons cap­tain Dane John­stone said. “We’ve stuck to the sys­tems Mac (head coach Kyle Makaric) was preach­ing and now all of us are see­ing the re­sults. It’s com­ing to­gether re­ally well so far.”

The win­ning streak has lifted the Ma­roons (10-2-0-2) to sec­ond place in the Greater On­tario Ju­nior Hockey League’s West­ern Con­fer­ence with 22 points, nine be­hind the Lon­don Na­tion­als (15-1-0-1).

The Ma­roons have played three fewer games than the Na­tion­als.

The Ma­roons sent rookie for­ward Cameron Welch of Char­ing Cross to the Komoka Kings on Wed­nes­day to com­plete their Septem­ber trade for twin broth­ers Brett and Kyle Fisher. The 18-year-old Fish­ers were ac­quired for fu­ture con­sid­er­a­tions three days be­fore the sea­son opener. They’ve com­bined for 24 points – 13 by Brett and 11 by Kyle. Welch, 17, had one goal and one as­sist in 10 games.
