Dundas into 4th after Thorold victory
By Larry Robertson
DUNDAS—Dundas Real McCoys gained a split in their Allan Cup Hockey weekend action, and overtook Thorold Athletics for fourth place in the league standings.
Last Friday night, the McCoys engaged in a shootout with the Stoney Creek Generals, only to come out on the short end of a 10-8 score. The story was different the next night, as they defeated the Thorold Athletics 6-3 at Thorold, on a three-goal effort by Beni Berisha.
“Last Friday was a shootout; it was fun for the fans to watch I'm sure,” said Don Robertson, McCoys President and General Manager. “The Generals have a nice club, but they took some liberties, and (Jordan) Foreman took exception to a blindsided hit. He left the players bench to straighten the situation out, and he received a three-home game suspension, and Coach Ron Bernacci received two games.”
“Saturday, we stepped up our game in front of a big Thorold crowd, and walked out with a tough three points," Robertson added. “This Friday we have Whitby in town. They took great glee in running the score up against us a couple of weeks ago, and our guys are excited about playing them again.”
In addition to Berisha, Dundas got a pair of goals from Trevor Atkinson, and a single from captain Cam Watson. Shawn Snider assisted on three of the McCoys goals. Thorold replied with two goals from Steven Dol and one from Jay Hill. Dol also had one assist.
Last Friday in the Grightmire Arena, Watson led the Dundas attack with three goals and two assists. He scored once shorthanded and once on a powerplay. Chris Hulit added three goals and one assist. Jake Guidon and Curtis Campbell completed the scoring with a goal each. Steve Hurst and Matthew Bragg assisted on three goals each and Atkinson drew two assists.
