ISLANDERS TIED FOR FIRST PLACE

Oct 13, 2015

The Parry Sound Islanders are off to the best start in franchise history -- off to a roaring 7-2-1 record to sit second place in the competitive GMHL North Division.

This past weekend saw the Islanders win two games over the always strong South Muskoka Shield and expansion Coldwater Falcons.

On Saturday, the club was hosting the Shield on home ice. Parry Sound came away with a strong 6-3 victory on the strength of goaltender Everette Calendine's 37 save performance. Up front, Enver Presheva continued his strong season with three points (1g, 2a) while Jirovec had three points of his own. Finding the back of the net included: Presheva, Pejsa, Vesel, Barnes, Grunkemeyer and Brezka.

The very next night, Parry Sound hit the road for a tough road game against the Colwater Falcons. The squad was tired but still managed to grind out a 7-6 victory over the Falcons. Another balanced offensive performance was the key to victory. Josh Vaughan had two goals to lead the club while Vojtas, Karlsson, Obery, Prochazka and Hanus had singles.

Parry Sound is quickly establishing themselves as a premier team in the North. A strong victory over the Seguin Huskies last week followed by another strong weekend is turning heads across the league, recognizing Parry Sound as one of the strongest teams this season.
