It was a rough afternoon for the Maniwaki Mustangs on Sunday, as suspended players and injuries marred their bench, crippling their perfect record against the Smiths Falls Settlers this season.
Despite the loss for the home team, spectators to the fourth Canadian Premier Junior Hockey League game in Shawville still came out on top as the action proved non-stop in the full contact match.
First period saw the Mustangs forced into the defensive when the Settlers began the game with some rough tactics. Settler Jim Papatie was sent to the locker room after delivering a crushing check from behind to a Maniwaki player, but this wouldn’t make the job any easier for the home team. Soon after, the Settlers scored their first of the evening, ending the period with a 1-0 lead over the Mustangs.
