Jack Ahern, a rookie winger, is a new face on a deep and strong roster for this year's McLean & Dickey Orillia Terriers. The Terriers battle Schomberg on home ice Saturday night.

The McLean & Dickey Orillia Terriers, sporting an excellent 11-2 record, are tied with rival Stayner for first place in the North Carruthers Division of the Provincial Junior Hockey League.

Tonight, the Terriers travel to Stayner to take on the Siskins in a battle for top spot.

The Terriers are back on home ice Saturday when they take on the resurgent Schomberg Cougars, which are just one point behind the division’s co-leaders courtesy a 10-3-0-1 record. Game time Saturday night at Rotary Place on University Avenue in west Orillia is 7:30 p.m.
