Indians within one point of first in NOJHL

The Soo Indians still have a shot at finishing in first place in the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League.

The Indians moved to within a point of the first-place Sudbury Jr. Wolves with a 7-2 road win over the North Bay Skyhawks on Sunday evening. Both the Indians and Sudbury have two games left in the regular season.

Sudbury, with 61 points, is home to Blind River on Wednesday night and at Abitibi on Saturday. The Indians, with 60 points, wrap up their regular season with a pair of home games at Big Bear Arena, Friday against North Bay and Saturday vs. Manitoulin.

In the Indians' win over North Bay, captain Isaac Viau and Scott Pulak both scored twice and Nick Zilka, Ky Moje and Chris Cooper added solo goals in support of goalie Brennan Poderzay, who made 26 saves.

The Indians began the weekend by losing 3-1 on the road to Abitibi. Moje netted the only goal for the Indians.
