The Nickel City Sons and Sudbury Wolves are hardly neck and neck when it comes to the Northern Ontario Peewee AAA Hockey League standings, but you could never tell when the teams go toe to toe.

The local rivals hooked up in a pair of games last week, with both encounters heading right down to the wire. Playing Dec. 15 in Levack, the Sons and Wolves finished deadlocked in a 3-3 draw as Christian Gaudreau pulled Nickel City even with under five minutes to play.

Shane Poitras and Bailey Therrien also bulged the twine for the league leaders while Billy Moskal, with a pair, and Hunter Chiblow answered for Sudbury, still 18 points back of Nickel City in the standings.

The Sons utilized a balanced attack to sudbue the Wolves 5-4 on Dec. 16 at the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex, with Tommy Vlahos, Damien Giroux, Aiden Chmielak, Brady Maltais and Quintin Bertrand all finding the back of the net for head coach Dan Giroux.

Brett Jacklin, Chris Clark, Moskal and call-up Joseph Cassio countered for Sudbury, with the team resuming league action in late January, playing host to the Soo Greyhounds.

A pair of Sudbury AAA teams are welcoming visitors to town on this final weekend before Christmas. The Major Bantam Wolves will tangle with the North Bay Partners in Law Trappers for a three-game set at the Carmichael Arena while the Sudbury Minor Bantams look to steal some points from the North Bay crew as well.

The Minor Bantam Wolves will be at the Toe Blake (Coniston) Arena on Dec. 22 at 1:30 p.m., back at the Sudbury Arena for an 8 p.m. rematch later that night before closing out the series with a Dec. 23 morning encounter at Carmichael Arena at 9 a.m.

The Major Bantam Wolves are using the traditional Carmichael weekend ice, with games on Dec. 22 at 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. and again on Dec. 23 at 11 a.m.
