Mariners Take Strong Road Record To Truro

By Kevin Northup Nov 25, 2022 | 11:00 AM

The Yarmouth Mariners have won six of eight games on the road this season.

They will look to sweep a four game road swing tonight in Truro.

Head Coach and GM Laurie Barron says special teams are helping.

“We’re just under 40 percent on the powerplay on the road. I think sometimes you just keep it simple in the road, and it’s worked very well,” says Barron.

The Mariners trail the Bearcats by two points for first in the division.

They dropped both games this season to the Bearcats at the Fishtank by 3-2 scores.

Barron says it’s a good measuring stick.

“We feel like we maybe had a bit of bad luck only coming away with one point. We outshot them both games. But we need to find a way to win one against them, and no better night than tonight.”

The Mariners return home tomorrow night to face the Pictou County Crushers.

In December, the Mariners will play seven of eight games on the road, as the Canadian Senior Curling Championships will be at Mariners Centre.

Barron says it will be a great test before the trading period.

He says he looks forward to seeing a lot of fans at their last two home games before the Christmas break.
