We pick up this Oldtimers hockey roundup from yesterday’s action at Takhini Arena.
In the early game Environmental Development Inc. took to the ice against AON Flames.
In the first period all in attendance were witness to a goaltenders duel. Both goaltenders faced substantial offensive zone pressure in the first period but were able to turn away every shot fired their way.
For no lack of trying, the score remained tied after period one.
The floodgates opened in the second period. AON lit up the scoreboard, netting five goals. The AON goal scorers were Gary Mackellar, Rick Smith buried two, Jeff Jensen and Dave Wipf.
Mark Suominem and Colin Nash got the goals for EDI.
In the late game Wednesday at Takhini Arena Tim Hortons faced off against Kilrich.
Tim Hortons was able to put the biscuit in the oven six times, while Kilrich only manged to score one.
Greg Lane and Wynn Griffith both potted two goals for Tim Hortons, Gregor Gabb and Mike Blower supplied the rest of the scoring.
Kilrich’s lone goal came off the stick of Dale Gray.
The following was submitted by Bernie Adilman:
Air North Jets 6 Yukon Inn 1: Briar Young took flight on Sunday, scoring three times and adding three assists to lead the Jets to the win in Whitehorse Oldtimers hockey action at Takhini Arena.

Kilrich 1 AON Flames 1: In a battle of the top two teams in the standings, Dustin Heffner scored for Kilrich and Rick Smith replied for AON.
Medicine Chest 4 Firth Rangers 4: Ken Vickerman, inexplicably on the ice with their goalie pulled, scored with 14 seconds left on the clock to earn the medical team the tie.

Tim Hortons 5 EDI 1: Doug Cote scored what proved to be the winning goal eight minutes into the second period to pace the donut gang. Other Timbits to bulge the twine were Wynn Griffith, Gary Jerome and Greg Lane. Maxime Dugre-Sasseville potted EDI’s lone goal.
