Bearcat-of- the-Week honours went to third year defenceman, Riley Baggs. Scoring points has not been his forte but when he does score, itís usually a big one. In Saturdayís 4 Ė 3 OT win over the visiting Dieppe Commandos, it was his tying goal with five (5) seconds remaining on the clock to force the extra session. Thatís whatís called a huge goal.

He got his hockey start in the Conception Bay Regional Program working his way through the classifications to the Bantam level when he joined the CBS Renegades for a season, followed by one with the Marks Dakota Wild, winning Provincial Bantam honours. Next up was a pair of seasons with the St Johnís Maple Leafs.

The 2014 draft pick gave the Bearcats a coveted right shot and a sound understanding of defensive zone play. His game grew each season. Last year he was one of two Bearcats named to the MHL All-Star team which competed in the Eastern Canadian Junior ďAĒ challenge. Thereís no surprise he was named this year to the Eastlink South entry in the Challenge.


Hats off to Coach Evans for being named Head Coach of the Eastlink South entry in the Eastern Canada Cup All-Star Challenge set for November 14 Ė 16 in Cornwall, ON.


The Bearcats are at home for a pair of games this weekend. Saturday the South Shore Lumberjacks are in town for a 7:00 start.

Sunday, at 2 pm, the Bearcats face the Amherst Ramblers.
