A weekend sweep of the North Bay Minor Trappers and the Soo Major Thunderbirds has vaulted the surging Timmins Majors to the .500 mark in the Great North Midget Hockey League.
Playing at home, Timmins trimmed North Bay by a 3-1 margin and tuned the Soo by a 6-2 count to even its record at 4-4 in the nine-team Great North.
Timmins has a tidy 3-0-0 mark within the comfort of home at MacIntyre Arena but plays its next five games on the road, including three this weekend. Coach Brandon Perry’s Majors won’t see home ice again for game action until Thursday, October 25.
Dylan Dallaire was in net for both of the Majors weekend triumphs and lowered his goals against average to 2.42.
On the points parade, forward Brennen Martel leads Timmins in scoring with 3 goals, 7 assists, 10 points in 8 Great North outings.
Up next are defensemen Cameron Dutkiewicz and Gavin Martel, both with 1-6-7 totals.
Then there is forward Jesse Dupuis with 5-0-5 totals. His 5 goals are the most on the Majors.
