Phantoms fall behind North Shore

Amherst -

The Fundy Phantoms played three games last weekend, losing all three, while the North Shore Storm had a win and a loss over the weekend.
On Friday, the Phantoms lost by a score of 11-1 against the Easter Shore Jr. Mariners at Amherst Stadium on Saturday they lost 4-1 to the Clippers in Chester, then on Sunday they lost to the Clippers by a score of 7-1 at Amherst Stadium.
The losses put the Phantoms in the basement in the Central Division of the Nova Scotia Junior C Hockey League with a record of 3-12-0-1.
In North Shore Storm action it was captain Tyler Collins scoring a goal and two assists to pace the Storm to a 5-2 victory over the Digby Fuelers Sunday afternoon in Digby.
Hard work Sunday returned the formerly slumping Collins to the score sheet as the Storm once again moved ahead of the Fundy Phantoms in the league standings - the Storm now have eight points, while the Phantoms have seven.
Head coach Paul Atkinson was pleased with Collins's leadership.
"Tyler was getting frustrated as the puck simply has not been going in for him," Atkinson said.
Collins scored on a power play set up by Justin Farrow, and Bryan Murray.
Farrow then scored on an assist by Collins.
Ryan Bates scored on a set up by Brad McCormick, and then Jason Fauvelle scored the Storm's fourth goal from Bates and Neil Works.
Bryan Murray then scored the fifth goal from Collins.
The Storm out-shot the Fuelers 39-16.
Patrick Darragh played a strong game in net for the Storm. The win will make the drive shorter as the squad focuses on a home-and-home series with the Chester Clippers this weekend.
On Saturday the Storm lost 7-2 to the Clare Lions.
