The Lynx are off to a hot start this season, sitting fourth in their division with a 2-1-1 record. Last Friday, the team took on the South Muskoka Shield, winning 5-2.


Associate head coach Mathieu Gaudette says the Lynx started off with a slow first period, but didn’t let up once the second period started.
“It was a big night for our forwards and assistant captains Thomas Farrell (1 goal and 2 assists) and Oliver Johansson (1 goal and 1 assist). Gulio Costa was in goal and once again picked up a win with a solid performance between the pipes. He’s surprising us every night.”


Costa saved 34 shots on net on Friday, boasting a .947 save percentage.


On Saturday, the Lynx returned to the SF arena to face the New Tecumseth Civics.


Their crisp passing led to an early lead, with a goal by Donovan Rich, assisted by Nicolas Proulx, and another by Andrei Zayats, assisted by Donovan Rich and Sergei Khudiakov.


At the start of the second, it was the Civics who drew first blood with a goal.
