Rookie Soo U18 Greyhound assistant coach Ty Zachary told Saultsports that “We consider this weekend a huge success, getting three out of four points against a great Timmins team. The team showed us a lot of great things that we will continue to work on to get to the next level. The thing that stood out most to us coaches was the effort and aggressiveness that the boys played with all weekend was unbelievable and that’s all we can ask for. Goaltending is and will be the backbone of this team all year and they proved that again this weekend with two great performances from Borrelli and Marsons.”

Next up for the Soo U18 Greyhounds will be on the road starting with a stop in New Liskeard to face the Cubs on November 17th in an 8:00 p.m puck drop followed by November 18th and 19th games in Sudbury against the Sudbury U16 Wolves with game times of 8:15 p.m and 2:30 p.m respectively.
