Bearcats hosting pair of weekend games
The Truro Bearcats return home for a pair of divisional games in the Maritime Junior Hockey League this weekend.
The Bearcats host the Yarmouth Mariners on Friday and the Pictou County Weeks Crushers on Saturday. Both games start at 7 p.m. at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre.
Truro (3-2-0-0) is third in the Eastlink South Division, two points behind second-place Amherst (4-10-0) and seven back of undefeated Yarmouth (6-0-0-0).
The Bearcats enter Friday’s contest after a 4-1 loss to the Mariners last Saturday in Yarmouth. Kyle Sexton had the lone Truro goal in that contest.
On Sept. 27, the Bearcats downed the Crushers 5-1, one night after a 5-0 home-ice loss to the Ramblers.
Gavin Hart struck for a pair of goals for the Bearcats at the Pictou County Wellness Centre. Lauchie Macdonald, G Blackmore and Carson Lanceleve, on a powerplay, also scored for the visitors.
Evan Maclennan was the lone Pictou County shooter able to solve Bearcats goaltender Alec Macdonald, who made 27 saves.
