STRAIT AREA: The Cape Breton West Islanders have a 2-2 record just four games into the Nova Scotia U18 Hockey League season.
The U18 Islanders hosted the Sydney Rush on October 29 at the Al MacInnis Sports Center in Port Hood, and skated away with a 5-2 win that saw the Islanders come out physical and take a lead they didn’t relinquish all game.
Lowell MacDonald and Marcus Larade got the home team on the board early in the first period, followed by goals from Jacob Cook, James Beaton and Bryce Thomson.
The Rush got their revenge on Sunday afternoon, beating the Islanders 4-2 in Sydney. James Beaton and Cook scored again for their team.
The Islanders will be at home on Saturday, November 7 when they will be facing the Weeks Majors at 6 p.m.
