On Monday night, the Real McCoys had to shake off a penalty shot goal by the Thunder’s Ryan St Laurent. Both teams were even after two periods at 3-3 when Watson scored the game-winner off a rebound.

The McCoys outshot South East Prairie, 29-21.


Jordan Foreman, Simon Mangos on a powerplay, and Nick Smith rounded out the Dundas scoring, while Ryan Christie and Jason Ward set up two McCoys goals each.

Brad Purdie and Shea Hamilton had the other Thunder goals. All three of the South East Prairie goals were unassisted and the Thunder failed to score on five powerplay opportunities, while Dundas was one for six.


Joel Prpic paced the Brantford attack with a pair of goals while Chris Leveille added a goal and an assist. Mike Burgoyne (shorthanded) and Dave Russell added single goals.


Kenora’s lineup featured two former Real McCoys – TJ Sakaluk and Dan Pitre, both of whom were released by Dundas at the Ontario Hockey Association’s Jan. 10 cutdown date. Sakaluk picked a goal for Kenora while Pitre was held pointless. Rob Lawrence, Jesse Baraniuk on a powerplay, and Sean McAslan scored for the Thistles.
