Sports rewind: The week that was in local sportsSunday, October 14, 2012 by: Brad Coccimiglio
As is tradition in Sault Ste. Marie during the winter months, the week that was turned into a busy one around the arenas.
From injuries and a road trip for the Soo Greyhounds to four games in eight days for the Soo Thunderbirds among a host of other events involving local teams, it’s easy to miss something along the way.
Here’s a look at what you missed in the sporting world in the last week in Sault Ste. Marie.
With Colin Miller already injured, the Greyhounds lost another marquee defenceman from their lineup.
The Thanksgiving weekend was a busy one for three local teams who enjoyed some success. The Soo Thunder spent their weekend in Hamilton, as did the Soo Greyhounds minor bantams while the Greyhounds pee wee team won three games in North Bay.
After opening a seven-game homestand with a win over Abitibi last weekend, the Soo Thunderbirds played three games in three days, losing in overtime to Blind River before beating Elliot Lake and North Bay.
