Coyotes suffer first loss of the season, collect for food bank
On Friday past, the Valley Varmints travelled to play arch rival Durham and suffered their first loss of the season although still managing to come away with a point. The final score was 4-3 in a shootout. Down 3-0 with just seven minutes to go, Creemore came back to tie in regulation. The five- minute OT period solved nothing – the third Durham shooter finally managed to put one past Mason Kameka.
These boys don’t know the meaning of quit. Scoring for Creemore were sparkplug Nick Sammons with a pair and Creemore’s Jordan Taylor with his sixth of the campaign to go along with his 10 assists. On Saturday, the Yotes hosted the Stayner Siskins inan exhibition tilt where the final score looked like one from the CFL. The boys had a blast with no pressure on them to win.
The real winner was the local food bank who received a truckload of food and almost $300 in cash. Thanks to all who contributed. This food and money will get to the people who are in need this time of year.
Prize winners at the game were as follows:
Shoot the puck – Tyler Hekman – Howie’s bag,
50/50 – Penny Newell, $130, Siskins prize pack #1 – Frank Santini, Siskins prize pack #2 – Izzy Co’Dyre, Coyotes prize pack – Rick Cain, Stockyards – Kim Shortt,
Pita Pit gift card – Michael Welke. Emma Coleman photography gift
