If the Stouffville Spirit wants to go on a run, the timing is right.
The Spirit (2-16-1-0) plays seven of its next eight games at the Stouffville Arena. That stretch begins tonight with the Collingwood Blues (12-7-0-2) in town.
Stouffville continues to play well with little to show in the standings. They’ve lost four of their last six games by one goal. They were competitive in all six, including two tilts each with the Pickering Panthers and Burlington Cougars, first-place teams in their respective divisions who have appeared in the national Top 20 rankings.
Nov. 20 - Pickering 3, Stouffville 2
Carson Whitson and Hayden Simpson scored in the second period but it wasn’t enough to match the three goals Pickering scored during the first period at the Stouffville Arena.
Nov. 21 - Burlington 4, Stouffville, 2.
Another 3-0 lead for the opposition could not be overcome, this time at Burlington Central Arena. Peter Kioussis, with his first goalie in junior hockey, and Ryan Russell, shorthanded, scored for the Spirit.
Collingwood Blues at Stouffville, Nov. 25, 7:30 p.m.
Pickering Panthers at Stouffville, Nov. 27, 7:30 p.m.
