The Shawville Pontiac Juniors will be on the road this weekend for two important games as they continue to battle their way up the Valley division standings.
Saturday's game, in Almonte at 7:30pm, will pit the Pontiacs against the Thunder on the heels of last week's grinder that had to be decided by a shootout. With Vegas taking the match, the Thunder will be looking for some payback after last weeks game pushed them further down in the standings and Almonte will be looking to close the gap between themselves in 4th place and Shawville, firmly nested in third.
Then Vegas will be off to Renfrew, to take on their main rivals, the Division's first place Renfrew Timberwolves at 7:30pm Sunday evening. Whenever these two teams hit the sheet, sparks are bound to fly, resulting in some of the best hockey available anywhere.
After their first matchup this season that saw Vegas poised to take the game, Renfrew rose from the ashes with a last minute Hail-Mary just seconds left in the 3rd period, pushing the contest into overtime. The Timberwolves managed the winning goal, but just squeeking by the Pontiacs will mean that Renfrew will looking for a decisive win Sunday.
The Shawville Pontiacs however, will definately have a few tricks up their sleeves.
With two potential barn-burners online for this weekend, hockey fans will not be left disappointed.
