Meaford Hosts West Nipissing Tonight
Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire. "
We outlined the scenario that torpedoed the Wiarton Schooners of the Greater Metro Junior Hockey League yesterday.
Today we don't go to the other end of the spectrum exactly, but we do look at an arrow that is definitely going upwards.
In their 5th season of operation, the Knights of Meaford have given every indication that they mean business in the North Division.
This evening, the Knights host the West Nipissing Lynx who are 5th in the division but within striking range of the leaders.
Meaford is 8th...but 8th with a bullet and a victory tonight would allow them to inch closer to the Lynx and the top 5.
I've only seen the Knights once this year, and it's hard to gauge a club in a 17-2 victory, but they looked faster, smoother and sharper than any previous edition of the club.
Tonight we'll get a much better sense of whether the Knights of Meaford are contenders or not in the North Division when they host West Nipissing.
Game time is 7:30 at the Meaford & St Vincent Community Centre
I'm Fred Wallace
