The Kapuskasing Flyers won two of three games at the Kap RCC this past weekend.

The Kapuskasing Dufour Waste Disposal Flyers took four of a possible six points on the weekend, defeating the visiting Sudbury Nickel Captial Wolves twice during a three-game home stand.


In Friday’s game, it looked early as though the Flyers would be in for a long night, with the Wolves taking an early 1-0 lead.


That was where it would end however as the Flyers absolutely dominated play for the remainder of the game, to the tune of a 9-3 victory.


Sam Bourdages and Sebastien Despatie led the way for the Kap club, picking up seven points and four points respectively.


Nicholas Dubé picked up the win between the pipes.


Saturday would prove a different story however, as the Wolves would once again get on the scoreboard first, but this time would build on that momentum in a 6-3 Sudbury win.


Bourdages picked up three points in the loss, while Despatie picked up a pair.


Determined to take the rubber match of the series, the Flyers came out strong on Sunday afternoon, winning a 5-2 decision, with Dubé picking up his second victory of the weekend for the Model Towners.


The pair of wins have the Flyers in sole possession of third-place in the Great North Midget Leauge standings, one point up on the Wolves and five points behind the second-place Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.


This weekend, the Flyers will head out on the road for one game then come home for a pair.


Thursday, the Flyers head to Timmins to take on the Majors, then once again welcome visitors to the Kap RCC, as they take on the first-place North Bay Trappers, Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. and the New Liskeard Cubs, Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
