North Bay Nugget

The North Bay & District Major Midget AAA Trappers opened the central region championship with 1-1 tie against the Toronto Young Nationals.

Head coach Guy Blanchard thought the team started slow, but he expected it after a long layoff.

“The third period was our best and we had many chances to win the game,” said Blanchard

Jesse Kirkby was the goal scorer and Reece Proulx made 30 saves.

The Trappers play the Elgin Middlesex Chiefs at 3:15 pm Tuesday. Elgin Middlesex defeated the Clarington Toros 4-2 in their first game.

The winner of the championship will move on to represent the central region at the 2019 Telus Cup April 22-29 in Thunder Bay.
