by Sue Peters

Completing their 5th tournament for the year this weekend at the Greater Kingston Minor Hockey Association’s annual “Limestone City Cup”, the Jr. Frontenacs placed first in their pool by going 3-1 in round robin play, which set them up for a semi-final game against the Ottawa Sting. The Jr. Frontenacs went on to win the semi-finals with a score of 2-1, advancing them to the finals to play the Toronto Red Wings. The Jr. Frontenacs prevailed in the finals with a score of 7-4. This championship win brings the season total for the Jr. Frontenacs to 3 tournament championships: Hamilton International, Quinte Cup and the Limestone City Cup.

In the Kanata Tournament we lost in the semi-finals. The team also competed in the Silver Stick Finals in Port Huron, Michigan. Although the team’s record of 2 losses and 2 ties, doesn’t show how hard the boys played. The team showed great effort and hard work; the highlight of the tournament came with the boys tying the number one ranked team in North America, the St. Louis Jr. Blues.

With the Jr. Frontenacs competing in 5 tournaments this season their overall record for tournament play is 18-7-2 with 3 championships.

With only 8 games remaining in their regular season, the Jr. Fronts are sitting in First place in the East Division of the Eastern Triple A League. Their overall regular season record sits at 21-6-1. The team is looking forward to a long successful playoff run in the OMHA playdowns.
