Albert scored his pair of goals in a 3-minute span late in the first period, the first on an unassisted effort and the second from Griffin Forman and Jaekob Seymour. Between Albert's two goals the Lion's Bryce Kirkwood rattled a shot off the post and into the net on a Luke Byvelds pass.

Saturday, Nov. 10th - As one of the Lion’s Peewee C-1 House players said following the Saturday afternoon game against the 4th-place Brockville Braves, “Nobody even cares about the score!” And we believe he's correct so we will report a rather lopsided loss took place at Morrisburg Arena. That being said, the Lions did have a pretty decent third period. And Jordan Lowe scored an unassisted, power play single in the middle period.
Logan Casselman, Bryce Kirkwood and Henry Martens each scored singles to close out the game. One minor penalty was called in this game, that against the Braves in the second period, and that was when Lowe jumped at the power-play opportunity and was successful.
The Peewee C-1 House Lions next home game is on Friday, Nov. 16th at 8:00 p.m. when all the marbles are on the ice for bragging rights. The Lion C-2 House squad will bring their best game to stage versus the C-1 team to produce some great Friday night entertainment at Morrisburg Arena.
