Weeks Major Midgets forwards Nathaniel Leger and Cody Johnston crash the Halifax McDonald's net on Sunday afternoon during their home opener at the Wellness Centre. The Weeks squad fell to the McDonald's 6-3 after opening with a 4-0 on Saturday night in Dartmouth.
NEW GLASGOW - After a 4-0 loss to open their season against the Newbridge Academy Gladiators on Saturday, the Weeks Major Midgets had their home opener on Sunday against the Halifax McDonalds.
Although the Weeks squard was able to find the scoreboard they came out on the losing end of a 6-3 score.
Halifax opened the scoring just 51 seconds into the first period with Dillon Boucher making the extra move to trick Matthew Williams and slide the puck home.
With just 58 seconds remaining in the frame Nathaniel Lege scored the first Weeks Major Midgets goal of the season, but just 45 seconds later Shawn Hubley put the McDonalds up 2-1 before the intermission.
Evan MacLellan evened the score just two minutes in the second for Weeks, but four unanswered goals by Halifax, three in the second by Daniel Little and Johnny Jones (2) and one in the third by Jacob Hickey, before MacLellan's second goal of the game were too much for the Weeks Major Midgets.
The Pictou County based squad is home for a pair of games next weekend. They host the South Shore Mustangs on Saturday at 7:30 and 1 p.m. on Sunday.
