West Nipissing Remembers
Shop local 2017

The West Nipissing Lynx battled the Temiscaming Titans both away and at home last weekend, and despite a valiant effort, the cats fell flat both times.
On Friday, they traveled to Temiscaming and got on the board early with a pair of goals from Samuel Vigneux and Nathaniel McLeod. The Lynx were unable to get back on the board however, and the Titans scored 5 in a row to earn the win.
On Saturday, the Titans travelled to Sturgeon Falls where the Lynx sought redemption in front of a big home town crowd.
The first 5 minutes, Lynx goalie Alec St. Georges of Sudbury was tested early as he faced numerous shots from all over the ice.
Despite his efforts, a Titans goal snuck by after the Lynx gave up the puck in the neutral zone, leading to a 2-on-1 that stretched out St. Georges. Down one, the Lynx stayed aggressive as they peppered the Titans goalie throughout the first period. It wasn’t until McLeod got one near the halfway mark that the Lynx got on the board. Once they got there however, they continued the pressure as both a snipe from Farrell, and a big fore check by Alex Goulet notched another two for the cats. The period ended 3-2 as the Titans scored in the dying minutes of the period.
