Junior hockey: St. John’s joins Southern Shore at top of standings


The stingy St. John’s Caps recorded back-to-back wins over the weekend to move into a first-place tie in the Penney Mazada St. John’s Junior Hockey League standings.

The Caps downed the CBN Stars 4-2 Friday night in Bay Roberts, then followed that up with 4-0 shutout win over the CBR Renegades Saturday night at Twin Rinks in St. John’s.

Those results, coupled with the Southern Shore Breakers’ 3-2 loss to the Avalon Capitals Friday night in Mobile, leaves the Breakers and Caps tied for top spot with 9-0-2 records.

Southern Shore has dropped two straight games after starting the season with nine straight victories.

Redmond Hunt had the shutout Saturday for St. John’s, which has allowed a league low 29 goals in 11 games. Ben Noseworthy scored twice for the Caps.

Avalon also had a two-win weekend, having downed the Trinity-Placentia Flyers 8-3 Saturday night at the Goulds Arena. David Penny and Eric Hutchings each scored twice for the Capitals (7-5-0).

Sunday in Whitbourne, the Flyers picked up a win by downing CBN 8-4. In Sunday’s other game, the Mount Pearl Blades got by the Northeast Eagles 5-3.
