A former Mariner haunted his old team last night as the visiting CIBC Wood Gundy Lumberjacks edged Yarmouth 2-1. Shawn Boudreau, who was traded to Bridgewater a week ago, had a goal and an assist for Jacks. Michael Crawley potted the winner midway thorugh the third while Billy Clarke turned aside 32 shots. The South Shore Canadian Tire Mustangs have been knocked out of the Monctonian Major Midget Hockey Tournament. After going unbeaten during round robin play the Stangs fell 5-0 to Dartmouth in last night's  wild card playoff game. It'll be Sir John A. MacDonald against Yarmouth in the championship game at the Glen Murray Highschool Hockey Tournament. In last night's semis Sir John A topped Parkview 5-3 while Yarmouth blanked Bridgewater 5-0. Today's final faces off at 1:30 at the Bridgewater Arena. The Bridgewater Senior Girl Vikings are Western Region Highschool Volleyball champs. Playing on their home court the Vikes advanced to the Provincials with a straight sets win over Middleton. Bridgewater goes for a fifth straight title in two weeks.
