High school hockey is back in full swing in Aurora.
Five local teams are suiting up for this year’s York Region Athletic Association season, one of which will be looking for a divisional three-peat.
The St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs girl’s squad, winners of the last two YRAA championships as well as finalists in the last four, have jumped out the gate with three dominating wins so far this early season.
With a handful of returning players from last year’s winning team, they opened the season with a 7 – 0 win over Markham District, followed by an identical score against Stouffville last week.
The shutout streak was only broken in their latest game, a rematch with Markham, where St. Max squeaked out a 5 – 4 victory.
They are joined by the Aurora High School Eagles in the Girls Tier 1 division, who picked up their first win of the season against Markham on Monday, playing to a 1-2-0 record so far.
On the boy’s side, the Mustangs fell 3 – 2 to St. Theresa of Lisieux on Monday to drop to 1-3-0 on the season, the win coming at the hands of fellow Aurora squad Cardinal Carter last week, the Celtics only game so far this season.
The Aurora Eagles boys have so far dominated the Tier 2 division, putting up a perfect 3 – 0 record with nineteen goals-for and only two against, taking down Our Lady of the Lake, Renaissance, and Huron Heights in the process.
