Congratulations Southey Marlins on a wonderful opening night on Saturday evening. Senior hockey is definitely back in Southey. Although the Marlins fell short on the scoreboard, it was a good game, a great crowd and to those involved in getting senior hockey back in Southey, this was a great start. Of particular interest was the program that the Marlins have put together. Thank you to all of the sponsors in that program for helping making things happen in Southey. This was a job well done. Joseph Bergen and Riley Mohr would score the first two goals of the game in the first period but the Monarchs would come back in the second half of the period with a short handed goal from Robert Hillier and a goal from Liam Brennan. In the second period, Kyle Johnson would get a goal to give the Monarchs their first lead of the game. That goal would be answered mid way through the period by Joseph Bergen. Jesse Matlock and Tyler Penny would score for the Monarchs and Bergen would complete the hat trick and it was 5-4 Monarchs going into the third period. Torey Lindsay and Brady Aulie would score the only two goals of the third period and the Lumsden would win 7-4. Shots were 40-34 Monarchs. Kurt Sollosy would get the win in the Monarchs net and Ryan Senft was in net for the Marlins. The Marlins took two minor penalties and the Monarchs took three. Also on Saturday, the Strasbourg Maroons opened up their season against the Cupar Canucks in Cupar. The Canucks were coming off a 7-4 defeat to the Lumsden Monarchs the evening before. Josh Kluck would score for the Canucks early in the game before Greg Ferguson would tie the game mid way through the period with a power play goal. Cody Hall would quickly score for the Canucks after that and it was 2-1 for the Canucks after one period. Kyle Hall and Brett Boha would score early in the second peiod to extend the Canuck's lead to 4-1. The Maroons would then score three straight goals in two minutes with Ferguson completely the hat trick with another power play goal and an even strength goal. Tye Exner would also score. Donovan Chow would then score on the power play and the Canucks carried a 5-4 lead into the third period. The only goal of the third period came from Bryton Beattie for the Maroons and this game would go to overtime. Nothing would be settled in overtime.
