Despite being minus a good chunk of their team due to suspensions and Team NOHA commitments, Timmins Majors came away with three points from a Great North Midget Hockey League home and home weekend with the New Liskeard Cubs.
The Majors began the weekend by getting a point from a 4-3 overtime loss on Friday before going to the extra period again to upend the Cubs by a 3-2 margin on Saturday.
Timmins now has a record of 7-14-1 within the Great North while New Liskeard is 6-14-1.
Majors head coach Brandon Perry lauded the play of his short-staffed Timmins team.
“Three of four points isn’t bad considering we were missing nine regulars,” Perry told Hockey News North. “Our affiliate players did a phenomenal job giving us important minutes and doing a good job. Our guys played with a tremendous amount of resiliency both nights.
“We still have a lot of work to do but getting the result we wanted (on Saturday) was a step in right direction. Our guys are getting healthy, done serving suspensions and back from Team NOHA.
“It should be a good week of work and we are looking for some success in Waterloo (at the Gold Puck Tournament) coming up this week,” Perry concluded.
