Thursday. May 12, 2016


One of the longest streaks in Section X history came to an end, as the Canton Golden Bears delivered a decision 17-6 blow to the previously-unbeaten Salmon River Shamrocks. The Canton victory snapped the Shamrocks’ 91-game winning streak against Northern Athletic Conference opponents, dating back to 2008 when Salmon River last lost, also to Canton. The Golden Bears’ resolve to upset the Shamrocks was bolstered by a comeback earlier in the season, when Canton rallied to within a goal late in the game, but fell short 12-11. Josh Huiatt led Canton in the Shamrocks’ demise, scoring five goals and assisting on three others. Mark Mahoney added five goals for the Bears, while. Garrett Glasgow chipped in two goals and two assists. Skkylar Thomas and Raienteres Oakes netted two goals apiece for the Shamrocks.
