Walker steps down as 'Jacks Govenor

The Governor of the CIBC Wood Gundy Lumberjacks has stepped down. David Walker decided to leave the position and vacate his seat on the team's board of directors to focus more on municipal politics. He says he expects to be busy over the next year as he makes a run at the mayors seat. Walker says he also stepped down to dispel any notions that his role with Bridgewater council meant the Lumberjacks received whatever they wanted. He says he expects owner Ken Petrie to fill the position for the remainder of the year. Municipal and School Board elections will he held in Nova Scotia in October.

Woodstock Slam Lumberjacks

A spirited fight by the CIBC Wood Gundy Lumberjacks but not enough to take down the Woodstock Slammers. A three goal first period was enough to give the visiting team a 5-2 win over the Jacks last night. Head Coach Terry Rhindress says a couple turnovers in their own zone was the difference on the scoreboard. Michael Crawley and Nick Gouthro scored for the Jacks while Billy Clarke made 23 saves in the loss. The Jacks will try and halt their seven game losing skid tonight when they head to Amherst to play the Ramblers.
