The Kincardine Legion peewees are the lone local team remaining in the 23rd annual Kincardine Regional Silver Stick.
The peewee Kinucks will face Ayr this afternoon in Tiverton (5:20 p.m.) in a semi-final match-up. En route to the semis, Kincardine beat Walkerton 7-0, Glanbrook 3-1 and played Tavistock to a 1-1tie. Kincardine finished even with Tavistock in Group 1 play, but will face the top team from Group 2- Ayr - due to a tie-breaker of goals for and against.
Tavistock will face Listowel in the other peewee B semi-final game, which is in progress in Tiverton. The peewee finals will be played tomorrow (Wednesday) at 1:30 p.m. at the Davidson Centre in Kincardine.

They may sometimes seem like Scrooges, but Kincardine council members have a fun side to them too.
It was that sentiment that prompted deputy mayor Laura Haight and councillor Ken Craig to buy a singing telegram at the Kincardine Legion’s Deal or No Deal silent auction fundraiser in the spring.
Haight quipped that it was the best $100 she ever spent to hire the Kincardine Theatre Guild to write and perform a unique tune to wish Kincardine council and citizens a merry Christmas.
The Theatre Guild could make the song about whatever they wanted as long as it ended with a Christmas greeting, she said.
“Other than that, I didn’t see it, didn’t proof it, didn’t know anything that was going to be said. So it was as much a surprise to me as it was everybody else.”
