The Brian Pickett Ride Centre Jr. Attack had a strong showing in the preliminary round robin with a 9-2-0 record earning them first in their division. They earned the right to play Woolwich in the quarter finals and were defeated in 4 close games.
(L 4-3, L 5-3, W 2-1, L 4-3). Great job!
This Gaviller & Co. Jr. Attack played a strong OMHA preliminary round robin earning 10 out of 12 possible points against Hespeler & New Hamburg. In the next series vs Woolwich, they swept the series in three straight games (3-0, 6-2 & 3-1). It took all 5 games, but they defeated Burlington in the semi-finals.

The Crescents came through their preliminaries undefeated in 6 games. Their quarter final series was a match-up vs Woolwich which they swept in 3 games (7-4, 3-2, and 5-2). They now play a best of 5 series with Amherstberg.
