Indians tied for first in NOJHL

With six games to play in the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League's regular season, the Soo Indians are in a first place tie with the defending champion Sudbury Jr. Wolves.

Both teams have played 42 games and each has 56 points.

The Indians won their fourth straight game on Saturday night in Blind River, a 5-2 decision over the Beavers.

Shane Bailey tallied twice for the Indians, who led 4-0 at one point before needing an empty-net goal by Sean Reid to seal the victory. Isaac Viau and Sam Yearsley also scored for the Indians and goalie Brennan Poderzay won his 15th game of the season with relief help from Elliott Hogue.

"We'll take the win, Blind River is a tough place to play," reasoned Indians' head coach Kevin Cain.

After a road game against the Manitoulin Islanders on Friday, the Indians will return home to play the crossriver Soo Thunderbirds at 7 p.m. on Saturday in a match that will be played at Pullar Stadium.
