Pembroke Lumber Kings rolled into Kemptville looking for redemption after falling two games to one in previous meetings. Kemptville tried to beat themselves, as they kept handing their opponents opportunities to take the win and had to initiate a shootout to declare the winner with a 4 – 3 squeaker for the 73’s.Kemptville, with an extra attacker struck first in the first frame as Trottier paired up with Whyte to find Grady Logue PPG on the doorstep to slip through the five-hole past Isaac Wilson at 3:39. A two hundred foot seesaw contest for both contenders with a stoppers showcase to keep each club honest. Pembroke answered back when an assignment failure gave Vital Dinis a helper from Legault to put it behind Jacob Biron at 17:48 to spoil his SO.

Second stanza belonged to the 73’s as Merrett from the side of the net directed the rubber to Fennell  and Emile Trottier pumped it home to break the tie at 7:39.

Last twenty with Kemptville on PP saw Emile Trottier PPG after Yakubowski on his bike cycling low onto the tape of Henry to set up the two goal lead at 2:07. A transition breakdown with PP for the 73’s as Duck sprung Pratt Stetson SHG to flip it top shelf at 8:52 to make it a one goal deficit. The Lumber Kings pulled their stopper at 19:08 and at 19:48 Ryan McNally assisted by Dinis with Cameron to force OT. OT remained scoreless to set up the dreaded SO to determine the final outcome of the evening roustabound. Pembroke opened the challenge with Jacob Biron standing his ground and then again with the next two snipers. The third shooter for Kemptville would glide right, toe drag left over the shoulder of Issac Wilson for a 4 to 3 victory.

The PK for both teams were phenomenal with their goal tenders putting on a clinic, as well as the  stoppers best friend.

Kemptville pumped 52 SOG to Pembroke 31 and the 73’s 2∕5 PP, with Lumber Kings 0/6.

Friday evening the Kemptville 73’s wanted to post a win against the Renfrew Wolves after being blanked in three previous meetings as they came out with grit and determination to mount a 4 -1 win. It actually turned into a showcase for Emile Trottier in front of a home crowd, including his parents.

First frame opened with an introduction of how the 90 minutes would go down as the Wolves found themselves down a man at just :28, as Yakubowski held the line, across to Bennett to find Emile Trottier in the lane to pump it past Sebastian Resar at 1:55. Renfrew tied with man advantage at 10:23 when Tyson Tomasini PPG with helpers from Waivada and Scullion placed it behind Jacob Biron. Fennell stole the puck from a breakout attempt by the Wolves unto Logue twig through the middle for Emile Trottier from edge to a swift back hand over the leather at 13:24 for his second of the game and even it at one.

An aggressive forecheck to begin the second stanza from Tottier to feather it unto the tape of Bennett’s stick, back to Nathan Merret buzzing the line to fire a howitzer top shelf to make it a two goal lead for Kemptville at :44.

Renfrew started the final twenty by an aggressive attack onto the number of one of the 73’s main ingredients to even the playing field from one of the Wolves heavy weights at :46 that was accessed as a minor, that should have been a major with a suspension, and then again unsuccessful attempt from  another heavy weight. Kemptville with PP when Trottier stood up his assignment going downtown to strip the rubber to Yakubowski on the point to Grady Logue PPG to pull the trigger with a quick six hole marker over the leather to close the contest at 4 to 1 at 18:19.

Kemptville outgunned Renfrew 37 to 22 with 2/7 PP and their opponent 1∕3.

Kemptville road game with Carleton Place holding a two game win advantage for a Sunday matinee excursion was postponed due to weather.

Next contest will be on home ice to face the Smiths Falls Bears on Thursday, February 2 at 8 pm.
