AMHERST â€“ Considering the fact it was their first game of the New Year it would have been understandable if the Oxford Tim Horton Colts stumbled out of the paddock in their Nova Scotia Junior C Hockey League game against the Avon River Rats Saturday night in Oxford.
Instead, the Colts bolted out of the gates and won the game by a score of 6-3.
Head coach Paul Atkinson was pleased with the Colts effort after having a month of hockey off due to bad weather and the New Waterford Jets dropping out of the NSJCHL.
The Colts travel to Barrington on Saturday to play the Ice Dogs, and return to Oxford on Sunday where they will host the Clare Lions at 3 p.m.
