Kerr was back in front of council during its planning meeting last Wednesday with a planning application that is on its third revision.

It is somewhat fitting that the OMHA final series is even, as either Kincardine or Petrolia could quite easily be holding a 2-0 lead right now. Both games could have gone either way, and Game 2 in Petrolia was decided in overtime.

Game 3 of the series will be played in Kincardine Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. Game 4 will be Sunday at 4:10 p.m. back in Petrolia. Game 5 in the best-of-five series, if necessary, will be played March 25 in Tiverton at 3 p.m.
