A young sniper from Rocky Harbour finds himself leading the scoring race in the senior hockey setup on the west coast.
Luke Parsons, a former winger with the Western Kings major midget hockey franchise, has accumulated 23 points, with his 10 goals putting him in a three-way tie for most goals around the four-team West Coast Senior Hockey League heading into weekend action.
Stephen Simms, an anchor on the blueline for the league-leading Red Wings, holds down third spot with 20 points on 10 goals and 10 assists, while Ryan Meade of the Corner Brook Royals — one of the steadiest two-way players in the league — is second in league scoring with 21 points.
Parsons, who now lives in Corner Brook, will be looking to pad his lead Friday night when the Red Wings tangle with the Stephenville Jets 8 p.m. at the Hodder Memorial Recreation Complex in Deer Lake.
The Corner Brook Royals will play the Port aux Basques Mariners in a home-and-home series this weekend with the Mariners playing host Friday night 8 p.m. at the Bruce II Sports Centre and the Royals putting out the welcome mat Saturday 7:30 p.m. at the Corner Brook Civic Centre.
