The Kincardine Canadian Tire atom Kinucks hold a 1-0 lead in the OMHA quarter-finals after blowing out Gananoque earlier this evening at the Davidson Centre.

 

By the time the final horn sounded to end the opening game of this series, Kincardine held a lead of 10 goals. The final score was 11-1. After a relatively tight opening period, the Kinucks waltzed away from Gananoque in the middle frame. A 3-0 lead quickly grew to a 6-0 lead to an 8-0 lead in a matter of mere minutes. The visitors finally got on the board early in the third period, snapping Rowen Cherrett's shutout bid.

The teams will meet again tomorrow at noon at the Davidson Centre in Kincardine to play Game 2 of this best-of-five series.

 

WESTERN JUNIOR C

The Nicol Insurance Kincardine Bulldogs hold a 2-0 lead on the Goderich Flyers in the Western Junior C quarter-finals.

After a 6-3 win at home Friday night, the Bulldogs hammered the Flyers tonight on the road. Kincardine will try to put a stranglehold on this opening round match-up tomorrow at the Davidson Centre at 2 p.m., following Game 2 of the atom series.

Elsewhere tonight, the Hanover Barons beat Mount Forest 5-2 to take a 2-1 series lead in that match-up. And in Mitchell, the Hawks scraped out an overtime win over the Wingham Ironmen tonight, a 2-1 final. Game 4 of that series is 3:30 p.m. tomorrow (Sunday) in Wingham.
