Significant Night For Junior Hockey


By Fred Wallace


It's a very significant night in Junior Hockey.

In the Western Junior C semifinals, both series resume tonight.

In Kincardine, the Bulldogs host Walkerton in game 2 of their best of 7 after Kincardine scored an upset in the opener of the series.

Meanwhile in Durham tonight, the Hanover Barons & Mitchell Hawks play game 3 of their series this evening.

The road team has won the first two games of the series which is deadlocked at 1.

The Georgian MidOntario Junior C semifinals also continue this evening.

The most significant game is game 7 at Penetanguishene between the Kings and Stayner.

Stayner won the first 3 games, the Kings rallied to win the last 3 contests.

Plus, Alliston is at Erin for Game 6 of that series, with the Hornets surprisingly in tough but leading the Shamrocks 3 games to 2.

And of course in the OHL, the Attack host London tonight while the Guelph Storm are at Erie.

Guelph is 1 point ahead of the Attack for the final playoff spot in the West, and the Storm have played 2 less games than Owen Sound.

Assuming the Storm will win the 2 games they have left with Sarnia, that makes tonight's game for Owen Sound absolutely crucial.

Game time is 7 pm at the JD McArthur Arena.
