Kilrich took over first place in the crowded Whitehorse Oldtimers hockey standings with a resounding 7-1 win over Tim Hortons Sunday at Takhini Arena. Four teams are within two points of top spot in the standings, making for some heart-pounding games of late.
But it was Kilrich doing the pounding on Sunday, as they were led by truculent rearguard Duane Purych with two goals and two assists. Single scores came from Nate Clark, Shawn Kinsella, Ryan Martin, Marcel Barrault and Danny Horassi. Doug Terry replied for the Timbits.
EDI 5, Air North 3

Gary Jerome netted two for the Rangers, Peter Johnston got the winner, and Jordan Borgford, Kevin Topping and Devon Slade also dented the mesh. Inn scorers were Adam Lightfoot with a pair, and Frank Aucoin.
