PROVING TO BE A TOP TEAM

Northumberland, Ontario
Oct 29, 2017

The Northumberland Stars are proving themselves to be a top team in the Greater Metro Junior 'A' Hockey Leagues South Division. Following a 2-0-1 stretch playing some of the league's top clubs, the Stars are now being talked about in the same breath as some of the annual powerhouse GMHL clubs.

With a record of 5-1-4, the statistically oddity of 4 OT losses in their first 10 games could easily have turned around to a record that would be competing for Division leads, had that 1 goal difference been in favour of the Stars.

The Stars defeated the Toronto Predators and Bradford Bulls earlier in the weekend, but fell to the Kingsville Kings in a 6:5 OT thriller.

Northumberland has seen balanced contributions from all parts of the lineup. Leading the way is veteran F Tyler Brackin, in his third season with the organization. He has posted a team leading 18 points in 12 games.

Next up is a road trip to Oshawa, Ontario taking on the Riverkings Monday.
