NEW GLASGOW – The Pictou County atom AA Crushers travelled to Amherst this past Saturday to play the Cumberland County team in league play.
The Crushers were plagued with penalties and the home team took the win.
On Sunday the Crushers took to the ice at home for two games against the West Hants Warriors.
The first game was tied 2-2 after the second period with Gabe Paquet and Covey Cameron scoring for the Crushers. Assists went to Cale Archibald, Cameron MacKinnon and Cale MacLaughlin. West Hants came back in the third period to score on the Crushers goalie, Michael Law, while he was down after being injured.
Law left the game early, and with Law being the only goaltender for the team that day, the Crushers dressed a player, Dawson MacDonald.
West Hants scored one more, and then an empty-net goal to win 5-2.
Law was able to return to the net for the second game later in the day, which West Hants won 4-2. Scoring for the Crushers was Dawson MacDonald, assisted by Tanner Steele, and Myles Farnsworth.
The atom AA Crushers will face the Yarmouth Mariners this weekend at the Wellness Centre.
