The Telegram (St. John’s) - - SPORTS -

The CBR Rene­gades recorded a pair of week­end vic­to­ries to keep pace with the Mount Pearl Mark’s Blades for top spot in the ul­tra-com­pet­i­tive Mary Brown’s St. John’s Ju­nior Hockey League.

The Rene­gades and Blades are neck and neck for first place in the eight-team ju­nior cir­cuit, set­ting up a big show­down be­tween the two teams 7:15 next Sun­day night at The Glacier in Mount Pearl.

In the mean­time, the Rene­gades got three goals from Tyler Nick­son, a goal and an as­sist from Ni­cholas David and two helpers from Drew Stone­house to beat the St. John’s Caps 5-3 at the C.B.S. Arena Satur­day. Fri­day night at the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts, An­drew Bar­ron scored on the Rene­gades ninth shot in the shootout to stake CBR to a 3-2 win over the home­s­tand­ing C.B.N. Stars.

Goal­tenders Jor­dan Black­wood of the Rene­gades and Ri­ley Ak­er­man of the Stars were out­stand­ing.

In an­other game Satur­day, at the Goulds Arena, Tyler Plan­etta had a goal and an as­sist, and Matthew Tem­ple­man had two as­sists as the South­ern Shore Break­ers beat the Avalon Capi­tals 4-3. For the Capi­tals, Jared Lush had a goal and as­sist and Coady Bar­ron as­sisted twice.

Sun­day at the Trin­ity-pla­cen­tia Sta­dium in Whit­bourne, the home­s­tand­ing Fly­ers beat the Capi­tals 5-4 in over­time. The Fly­ers led 4-1 with eight min­utes left in the third pe­riod , but the Capi­tals came back to tie the game be­fore the Fly­ers came away with the win in the ex­tra ses­sion.

Mean­while, in provin­cial se­nior hockey play over the week­end, teams from the for­mer Cen­tral-west se­nior league reg­is­tered wins over teams in the for­mer East Coast se­nior cir­cuit.

In Clarenville at the Eastlink Events Cen­tre, the home­s­tand­ing Cari­bous com­pleted a sweep of the St. John’s Caps with an 8-6 win Sun­day.

The game fea­tured a pair of out­stand­ing in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances: Kevin Reid scored five of the Cari­bous’ goals, while age­less Terry Ryan en­joyed an early birth­day gift — he turns 42 to­day — with a four-goal game.

Clarenville dou­bled St. John’s 4-2 Satur­day night.

At the Joe Byrne Me­mo­rial Sta­dium Sun­day, the Grand Falls-wind­sor Cataracts beat the South­ern Shore Break­ers 7-3, with Mike Cole and Bran­don Bussey each scor­ing twice for the win­ners.

Satur­day night at the Steele Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Bran­don Hynes fired four goals as the Gan­der Fly­ers de­feated the Break­ers 6-3.
