The Dryden GM Ice Dogs played a pair of games against the English River Miners on the weekend.

On Friday the Dogs played at the Cochenour Arena and it seemed like the home team had the advantage. Penalties cost the Ice Dogs as Jared Janke managed a hat trick on three separate power plays and ended Dryden GM goalie Isaac Labelle’s night. Stratton Pickett then picked up a quick goal on goalie Justin Anderson to leave it 4-0 after one period.

A quick goal in the second from Jordan Baranesky would be the only tally of the frame.

In the third period Janke managed two more power play goals before Jacen Bracko got the Ice Dogs on the board and ended English River’s shut out.

Dryden outshot English River 42-28.

The next night the Dryden GM Ice Dogs were back at home for a rematch against the Miners.

In a turn around from the night before Dryden got three goals in the first from Bryce McDonald, Eric Stout and Luke Bellerose.

Before the end of the first period Michael Di Lullo got the Miners on the board.

In the second Janke scored quickly on the power play and Samson Mouland added another for the Ice Dogs.

The third period saw Malcolm Huemmert score his fourth of the year and two more goals in the later half of the period earned Bellerose a hat trick on the night.

The Dryden GM Ice Dogs will be busy at home this week with three games at the Memorial Arena. The next game is Wednesday Nov. 1 and then another game on Saturday and Sunday. All games start at 7:30.
