Two steps forward and three steps back.
It’s too bad the Ontario Hockey League doesn’t award bonus points for holding on for a win while overcoming a great deal of adversity.
There wasn’t much not to like about the Brock Badgers men’s basketball team Saturday afternoon.
The Niagara Falls Canucks should have no trouble sleeping Friday night, as they skated past the Pelham Panthers in dominating fashion by a score of 9-5, a win that clinched home-ice advantage for the opening round of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League playoffs.
There’s no reference to “playing out the string” in the St. Catharines Falcons’ playbook.
There’s the final score, then there’s how the deciding goals were scored.
It was almost a sweep for St. Catharines high schools when the time came to crown senior boys basketball champions in Zone 4.
A figure skater who won three gold medals at the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) championships and a curler who skipped the Badgers men’s rink to the bronze medal at the provincial championships are Brock University’s athletes of the week.
Don’t be fooled by the standings or the schedule, tonight’s regular season finale is still a “something game” for the St. Catharines Falcons.
