NEWCASTLE NORTHSTARS MOVES TO THIRD ON THE LADDER

The Newcastle Northstars have moved into third on the Australian Ice Hockey League ladder, thanks to a great opening weekend at home.

Following Saturday’s comeback-win over the Sydney Bears, last night the Northstars hammered the Melbourne Ice.

A Canadian import did the early damage.

Captain Bert Malloy sealed the six-nil victory in the final period.

Newcastle host Perth and Adelaide in another double header next weekend.
