News Nov 06, 2009 Ancaster News

Dundas Blues head coach Dan Caco is glad the Junior C hockey team has a week off until their next game, giving some injured players time to return to the roster.

The coaching staff will also be happy to come out of a tough week with one win and one loss, holding on to first place in the Niagara District East Division, one game ahead of Grimsby. In addition to testing this year’s squad, the week offered a glimpse of the future.

“It has been tough playing short the last few games, but they have been good character builders for the team,” Mr. Caco said.

Tuesday night, Dundas held off a late push by Caledonia to take a 3-2 win. Goalie Clint Windsor made 36 saves for his second win of the season.

The game featured three emergency call-up’s from the Midget AAA Bulldogs to fill out the roster. Derek Searle, Ryan Lewis and Brayden Knott are all from Dundas and got a taste of playing for their hometown junior team.

“They all had good games and didn’t look out of place,” said general manager Steve Aglor. “They can definitely play at this level and we look forward to having them in a Blues uniform next year."

First period goals from Cole McNeil and Nick Bazinet gave the Blues an early 2-0 lead. Dundas’ D. J. McConnell, assisted by Ancaster resident

John Murray and Ryan Green, stretched the lead to 3-0.

Caledonia scored twice in the third period but Windsor and the Blues held on for the win.

On Sunday, Nov. 1, the Blues dropped a 5-2 game against Chippawa. Down 4-0, Dundas finally found the net half way through the final period. Nick Bazinet scored with an assist from Cole McNeil. Chippawa got that point back, and took a 5-1 lead. Cole McNeil scored with just eleven second left in the game.

Mr. Aglor said the team was short players to start the game. After a couple of injuries and ejections as the game went on, the Blues finished with just 11 skaters.

You can meet the Blues and show your support for the local Junior C hockey team on Monday, Nov. 9 at the team’s Al-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner at Parkside High School. The evening starts at 6 p. m. and the cost is $10.

After a seven day break, the Blues face Norwich at Dundas’ J. L. Grightmire Arena on Tuesday, Nov. 10. Norwich is one of the west division’s powerhouse teams, tied for first with Simcoe. Norwich has 11 wins and just two losses.
