Northern Vikings vs LCCVI Lancers

On Wednesday, the Northern Vikings and LCCVI Lancers met in Petrolia to begin the 2009 - 2010 LSSAA Hockey season.

Last year in the finals Northern took the championship with a final score of 2 -1.  In the opening game of the new season the Vikings continue their dominance with a 5 - 3 win.

Northern took a 2 - 0 lead in the first period with Ryan Dayman scoring the first goal on a powerplay assisted by Jace Felton.  The second goal was scored shorthanded by Sam Jasmin with Dayman assisting.

In the second Northern scored a single to go up 3 - 0 heading into the third with Victor Kovacs scoring assisted by Dayman.

In the third LCCVI found the back of the net on a goal by Joe Archer assisted by Davis Triest and Bret Vandenbroek.  Northern answered back less than a minute later with Victor Kovacs scoring his second goal from Ryan Jennings scoring.  LCCVI continued to fight back and came back with Ryan Zavitz scoring from Cullen Hunter and Chad Rainsberry assisting, but Northern's Ryan Dayman cancelled that goal scoring his second (his 4th point of the game) with helpers by Viktor Kovacs and Justin Moore.  In the last minute of play Joe Archer scored a powerplay goal for the Lancers but time ran out giving Northern the win.

St. Christopher vs St. Clair

In the other opening season game the St. Christopher took a 3 - 2 win over the Shamrock Invitational Champions from last week.
