Tie championship series with Panthers

CHESTERVILLE – In front of a close to capacity audience, the North Dundas Rockets skated to a 4-1 victory against the nine-time champion Embrun Panthers and in the process knotted their best-of-seven National Capital Junior Hockey League championship series at a game apiece.

Rockets GM Robyn Sadler was asked just prior to the warm up of Saturday’s (March 18) game two if he was ready to take on the Panthers and even the series.

The Rockets evened the best-of seven showdown 1-1 posting a 4-1 win. Embrun took the opener 6-3.

in Richmond Munster tournament

RICHMOND – For the North Dundas Pee Wee House “C” Demons, it was a long time coming, but they were able to finish their 2015-2016 season on a winning note.

The Chesterville-based squad, made up of a blend of atom and first-year pee wee players, wasn’t able to register a win through 24 regular season and two Upper Canada Minor Hockey League playoff games, so Saturday’s (March 18) 5-2 victory over the West End Bulldogs was the perfect way to close out their season.
