It wasn’t the result that the Dryden GM Ice Dogs were looking for, but you can’t deny that the Dogs’ season was nothing short of spectacular. 

Two goals in the first two minutes of the final game in the Dudley-Hewitt Cup Central Canadian Junior A Championship put the sellout crowd in the Dryden Memorial Arena on the edge of their seats, as the Dogs took on the Wellington Dukes. 

A Mitchell Mendonca power play goal with 7:15 remaining in regulation proved to be the game-winner as the Dukes went on to defeat the Ice Dogs 7-4. 

Ice Dogs forward Kris Hamlin was named the player of the game for Dryden. Jacen Bracko was named as one of the top forwards of the tournament. Landon Pavlisin was named the top goaltender and MVP of the Dudley-Hewitt. 

The Dryden community was able to celebrate the Eagles girls soccer team winning the NorWOSSA ‘AA’ Championship! Laura Reid and Brynn Montgomery each scored as their team took down the Muskies 2-1 in Fort Frances in the final game. 

Julia Jones and Shannon Boss of Dryden as well as Andrew Bartlett and Jayme Caron of Kenora were recognized for their contributions to the game of hockey in Northwestern Ontario.
