Three games in as many days was the workload as Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League cohort rivals Cochrane Crunch and Timmins Rock faced off on the weekend.

Timmins took the first two games of the set by resounding 6-2 and 9-4 scores before Cochrane rebounded with a 4-2 triumph.

The two teams are slated to meet seven more times before the end of March when the shortened NOJHL season will draw to a close.

Cochrane, Timmins, Blind River Beavers and Soo Thunderbirds are the only active teams in the NOJHL as March marches to a season finish.
