Hurricanes Remain Undefeated At Provincial Championship

Posted on Saturday, March 18, 2017 06:31 AM

Make it three straight games without a loss for the O'Regan's Subaru Western Hurricanes.

The major bantam hockey club tied Dartmouth 2-2 and the All-Credit Auto Rangers 3-3 Friday at the provincial championships in Berwick.

The Hurricanes have a record of one win, no losses and two ties heading into their final round robin game today.

Head Coach Shawn Woodworth says he's pleased with how his club has played but knows there is still tough work ahead.

"It's a battle. It's a grind. Each team is in the same boat here, there have been a lot of ties here this weekend and it's been a great weekend so far. I think the four best teams are going to move forward."

The Hurricanes will meet the second ranked Landworks Gulls.

Woodworth says it will be two good teams going toe-to-toe.

"Our goal is to match the intensity and get a lot of pucks to the goal and cause some traffic in front. They have two good goalies on their side so we have to take a lot of space away from them, put a lot of screens in front and make him work for his saves."

A win for the Hurricanes would clinch a berth into this evening's semi-finals.
