Tuesday, Oct. 2nd - South Dundas’ Atom B House Lions have all the makings for great competition for the 2018-19 season on display at Morrisburg Arena Tuesday night. Starting at the back end with a strong goaltending duo of Owen Conlin and Rowan McCooeye this team will be tough to crack. The squad boasts a strong defence and a number of sharpshooters on the forward lines.

        The Casselman twins, Katie and Chloe, who have added physical size over the off-season, as has Connor McCurdy and Jordan Elliott. Nick Carruthers and Jake Thompson add some punch and noted scorers from last season, Chase Alger and Mathieu Bazinet are always dangerous around the net. The team rounds out with the always hard working Joel Onstein and Brody Duncan.

        Hosting the North Dundas Demons in a pre-season game at Morrisburg Arena the Lions built momentum throughout the 50 minute challenge, and controlling the final eight minutes for a number of scoring attempts.  The Demons were up for it in this game, returning great scoring chances. 

        Each team came as close as the width of a goal-post more than once, but neither managed to beat the goalies, including Chase Culbert and Cooper Smith in the Demons net. The game ended in a scoreless tie.

        North Dundas served a pair of minor infractions in this one and the Lions outshot their opponents on a 19-15 count.
