The Trappers are back in action this weekend in London as they take part in the Wendy Dufton Memorial Tournament.  

Minor Peewee 

The North Bay & District Minor Peewee AAA Trappers faced off against the Sudbury Wolves this weekend as the regular season got underway. Game one found the Trappers down 3-0 going into the third. Trappers winger, Ben Brunton, snuck a backhand past the Sudbury netminder early in the third to put the team on the board. Defenceman Michael Dech went end to end, potting his first of the season in an effort to come back. 

Trappers goaltender Terry Bradley battled hard against the Wolves, allowing the Trappers a chance at a win. However, the Trappers fell to the Wolves 3-2 in the end. 

Trappers winger Mason Fike opened the scoring for the second game after linemates Ethan Roy and Ben Brunton generated an aggressive forecheck in the offensive zone.  However, Sudbury bit back, scoring two.  

Roy lit the lamp, with help from linemates Brunton and Fike, to tie the game.  

The Wolves found the net in the third, ending the game 11-2. 

In the final game of the weekend, the Trappers fell 11-1 with Cayden Hill scoring the lone goal in the setback. 

The Trappers will face off against the Soo Greyhounds this weekend in North Bay.
