T-Birds Blank Cubs


By Matt Stefano

In a battle of the top two teams in the Great North Midget League at the Rankin, the first place Soo Thunderbirds who were winners of three straight took on the second place New Liskeard Cubs who were coming off five straight victories.

Joey Roberts recorded his second shutout of the year tying him with North Bay Trappers goalie Colton Point for a league most as the Soo blanked the Cubs 3-0 and extended their winning streak to four games. Matt Murray and Ryan Mulligan each led the way with a goal and an assist while a single went to Brendan Gillis.

Next action for the T-Bird midgets is tomorrow night (December 20th) at 6:30 vs the New Liskeard Cubs back at the John Rhodes.
