NEW GLASGOW – On Sunday the Scotsburn Major Bantam Crushers lost their final preseason game 2-0 to the Truro Bearcats.
Ben Higgins scored the first Bearcats goal 4:24 into the third period, with an assist to Connor Miller.
Matt Smith scored the second goal at 17:30, tipping Cam Allenby’s shot from the point.
“The first two periods we outshot them about 25-8, but just couldn’t score,” said Crushers head coach Jeff Green. “I thought we played well and deserved a better fate. I felt we lost our intensity and tenacity in the third.”
The team opens the regular season Sept. 14 against the Newbridge Senators at the Pictou County Wellness Centre. Puck drop is 7 p.m.
