MHL: Ramblers Roll Over 'Jacks

A long night in Amherst for the CIBC Wood Gundy Lumberjacks. The Ramblers scored early and often as they pounded the Jacks 10-1. Jarred Dodman had the lone goal for Bridgewater, who surrendered three power play goals and two short handed markers. The Jacks don't have long to lick their wounds, they'll face the Commandos in Dieppe on Sunday afternoon at 2:30PM. Meanwhile, in major midget hockey, the South Shore Mustangs have been eliminated from the Monctonian Major Midget Hockey Challenge. The Stangs wrapped up round robin action with a 3-1 loss to the Fredericton Canadians. The locals finished the event with a 1-2 record.

Sunken Vessel Mystery In Cape Sable Island

An RCMP dive team has finished examining an area where a boat sank in waters off Daniels Head Wharf in Cape Sable Island. The 40 foot boat mysteriously went down late Friday morning. In a media release, police say it's not safe for divers to continue working around the boat because of the way it's resting on the ocean floor. RCMP Sergeant MJ DeLuco says they are still trying to determine the owner of the boat. A search and rescue team scoured the shoreline on Saturday looking for evidence in relation to the downed vessel. According to police they never found much to help with their investigation. Earlier in the day, Mounties indicated they hadn't received a distress call and the boat appeared to be abandon. Members of the Canadian Coast Guard were also involved in the day-long probe. Anyone with information is asking to contact Barrington RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

South Shore: Local Hockey Wrap

The CIBC Wood Gundy Lumberjacks have some confidence as they head out on a weekend road trip. The Bridgewater club has earned points in three of their last four contests including a come from behind win on Thursday against Yarmouth. The Jacks head into the Jungle tonight to face the Amherst Ramblers at 7 o'clock. Tomorrow it's off to Dieppe for a 2:30 start against the vastly-improved Commandoes. The South Shore Mustangs wrap up round robin action this afternoon at the Monctonian Major Midget Hockey Challenge in New Brunswick. The Stangs face Fredericton at 12:30. A win for the locals could earn them a playoff spot. 
In "Q" League action at the Metro Centre last night the Halifax Mooseheads dumped Rouyn-Noranda 8-3.
