Get­ting things right

Truro Daily News - - SPORTS - Gerry Hale Gerry Hale is pres­i­dent and me­dia re­la­tions co- or­di­na­tor for the Truro Bearcats ju­nior A hockey club.

ere is never any short­age of ex­cite­ment when Eastlink South com­pe­ti­tion is in town.

e Bearcats and Mariners al­ways play each other tough.

In Fri­day’s game, the Bearcats were on the verge of a win but short on ex­pe­ri­ence when it mat­tered most.

The last three min­utes of the game were played in Truro’s end.

The vis­i­tors tied, then scored the win­ner.

Game over.

The game proved two things – it’s not over un­til it’s over, and, there is no such thing as a bad shot on net.

Satur­day, the Bearcats scored a pair in the rst pe­riod, then rode solid goal­tend­ing to record a great bounce-back win.

Shutouts are hard to come by. Ev­ery­one has a part in it and mis­takes have to be min­i­mal­ized.

It was a good night, against one of the team’s clos­est ri­vals.

The Bearcats came out of the week­end plac­ing doubt in the minds of one com­peti­tor, and ex­tend­ing a win streak over the other.

It’s all good.

At the MHL Show­case in Pic­tou County, the Bearcats cel­e­brated Thanks­giv­ing Day with a 3- 1 win over the Mi­ramichi Tim­ber­wolves.

All 12 MHL teams par­tic­i­pated in the two-day event.

This Fri­day, the MHL de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons are at the RECC for a 7 p. m. start against the Bearcats. This will be the Ed­mund­ston Bliz­zards’ only reg­u­lar sea­son visit to Truro.

The Bliz­zard were a mas­sive suc­cess on and off the ice in their first sea­son in Ed­mund­ston.

ey will nd that wear­ing a tar­get on the backs guar­an­tees the op­po­si­tion’s best e orts.

Next Wed­nes­day, the Bearcats are at the RECC to face the South Shore Lum­ber­jacks.

e re­turn visit is set for the fol­low­ing night in Bridge­wa­ter – keeps mem­o­ries fresh.

The Lum­ber­jacks have a strong nu­cleus of re­turn­ing for­wards. The first head- to- head matchup with the Bearcats will be telling.

e RECC and Ti­tan se­cu­rity are in the process of in­sti­tut­ing Fa­cil­ity Pol­icy Ad­just­ments for events at that fa­cil­ity.

The Bearcats ask that fans fa­mil­iar­ize your­self with these changes through RECC sig­nage.
