"To sum up Game 3, the result sucked," said Kincardine coach Cory Hamilton on Monday.

An impressive run by the Kincardine District Secondary School girls hockey team came to a screeching halt in the OFSAA provincial semi-finals Friday morning.

The Knights have plenty to be proud of - an undefeated regular season, a Bluewater Athletic Association championship and a CWOSSA title. But that is little consolation to the team, which admittedly did not play its best hockey in a 7-5 loss to All Saints Catholic Secondary School of Whitby in an 8 a.m. game Friday morning in Stratford.


Hornets sting Patriots in Game 3

By Josh Howald

The Alliston Hornets had just too much firepower for the Mount Forest Patriots Sunday night.

The Hornets absolutely crushed Mount Forest 8-1 at home in Game 3 of the Provincial Junior Hockey League's North Conference final. Alliston had a chance to sweep the Patriots last night (Tuesday) in Mount Forest. If the Pats survived, they will have to travel to Alliston for Game 5 Friday night.

Games 1 and 2 of this series were close. The Hornets took the series opener 4-2 at home. Mount Forest looked to have Game 2 under control with a 2-1 lead late in the third period, but the Hornets tied the game with 1:29 left in the third period and then won in overtime on a goal from Drake Board.

Game 3 was not close.

Ripley travelled to the tournament Thursday to face Northport School from Port Elgin in its first game. Ripley walked all over Northport in a fast-paced game. The final score was 39-6. In the next game, Ripley’s quick passing was too much for Chesley as the Ravens dribbled to a 27-12 victory.


 OT win gives Radars 3-2 lead

An overtime win on Sunday evening in Petrolia gives the Clinton Radars a chance to win a WOAA Senior AA crown on home ice Friday night.

In the first four games of this championship senior hockey series, the home team came out on top. The Radars finally broke that trend Sunday in Game 5 with an OT victory.

Ryan Murphy scored at 13:08 of the first overtime period to give Clinton a 5-4 win in Game 5. The Radars had forced overtime with a goal from Stefan Salituro with a little more than five minutes remaining in regulation time. Sean Consitt, Tyler Doig and Mike Jarmuth also scored for Clinton. Adam Arsenault, Kraig Wright, Jesse Drydak and Ryan Trottier scored for Petrolia.

Clinton outshot the Squires 43-23 in this game – in which not a single penalty was called. It was a far cry from Game 4 the previous night in Clinton. Game 4 was filled with penalties and saw five different players ejected in a 7-3 Radars win.

The Knights were defeated 7-5 early this morning in a semi-final contest against Fort Frances High School. In the other semi-final, L'Escale knocked off the heavily favoured St. Mary Secondary School of Stratford.

So L'Escale, who edged out KDSS 3-1 yesterday in Kincardine's final preliminary round game, will play Fort Frances for a provincial girls high school hockey championship at 1:15 p.m. today at RBC Arena in Stratford.

At the same time, St. Mary CSS and KDSS will play for the bronze medal at Molson Arena in Stratford.

The Knights are sitting pretty, and have all but assured themselves a spot in a quarter-final contest tomorrow afternoon. KDSS does still have one preliminary game remaining tomorrow (Thursday) at 10:30 a.m. A win in that game would guarantee a spot in the playoffs.
