Game 1 belonged to the Soo Greyhounds.

The Soo took a 1-0 series lead on the Guelph Storm last night at home with a 7-4 win. This one was close until the end, when the Storm sealed things with an empty net goal with 55 seconds to play.

Ingersoll wins OMHA title

Tough end for atoms

A 10-1 loss was a harsh way to end an excellent season for the Kincardine Canadian Tire atom Kinucks.

But that's what the damage was last night in Ingersoll as the Express completed a three-game sweep of Kincardine to win the OMHA All-Ontario atom B championship. In three games, the Kinucks were outscored 28-3.

The win capped off an incredible season for Ingersoll. The team's overall record was 73-7-2. At one point this season, the Express railed of 48 straight wins.

Kincardine captured the WOAA playoff title before sweeping Elmvale and Parry Sound in the OMHA quarters and semis, respectively. But Ingersoll was just too much for Kincardine, who finishes with an impressive overall record of 40-14-3.
