The Soo Thunderbirds Midgets were coming off a 9-4 victory this morning over the Marquette Electricians at Rankin Arena and resumed their Great North Midget League schedule tonight at the Rhodes against the North Bay Trappers.

The teams skated to a scoreless first period until Great North Midget League’s top scorer Jeff Jordan put the Trappers up 1-0 with his twenty eighth from Devyn Martel and Eric Allair at 5:55. Jeff Jordan would then get his second of the night and twenty ninth of the season from Devyn Martel to put the gateway city up 2-0 at 12:25. With 3:39 left in the second, Joe Whittet would get his sixth from Robert Ranger and Finn Seguin to put North Bay up 3-0 through two.

Lucas Millar would spoil Colton Point’s shutout bid 10:59 into the third with his sixth from Matt Murray and Alex Morin, cutting the lead to 3-1. Jeff Jordan would complete the hat trick at 12:46 from Charlie Iserhoff and Lucas Nevrencan, giving him goal No. 30 on the season as the Thunderbirds fall to the Trappers 4-1 tonight at the Rhodes. Joey Roberts was in goal for the loss while Colton Point was in goal for the Trappers win.

The T-Birds will be back in action Sunday at 1:00 to take on the Marquette Electricians at the John Rhodes.
