CAHIERS SPÉCIAUX

The West Nipissing Lynx split the weekend once again, this time with a loss Friday against the Ville-Marie Pirates, and a win against the New Tecumseth Civics on Saturday. Both games were played in front of their home fans, with 250 to 300 people packing the Sturgeon Falls arena.

The Pirates proved a strong team with good chemistry, likely owing to the fact that their line-up is virtually unchanged from last year. “They worked hard and we just didn’t capitalize on our own chances. They made us pay for sure. It was a great back and forth game,” commented Lynx representative Mathieu Gaudette. 

The game started off at a fast pace with no team catching the upper hand in the first, until Lynx forward Marcus Rabbitskin put the Cats up one in the dying minutes of the period.

When the second period started, the Pirates’ pressure was relentless, leading to three unanswered goals and ending 3-1. It was too much for the Lynx to overcome despite a strong effort in the third, and the game ended 5 to 3 in favour of Ville-Marie.

On Saturday, the Lynx came out determined and poised, scoring 8 goals in two periods. The Lynx offensive prowess, mixed in with netminder Giulio Costa’s 49 saves, secured the 8 - 4 win over the Civics.
