And then there were two. Only two local teams are still in the running for a championship banner at the Bell Capital Cup after what was a difficult day for area teams on Sunday.

The Gloucester Rangers Minor Peewee AA squad earned a bye into the Minor Peewee AAA semi-finals after finishing in first place in the group round of the competition with a 3-1 record.

The Rangers will face the Rochester Monarchs in the semi-finals. The Monarchs have yet to lose a game in the tournament and are coming off a 6-1 win over P.A.L. Silver Shields in the quarterfinals.

The other east end team with a shot at a Bell Capital Cup banner are the Gloucester Rangers Major Atom AA squad which earned a bye into the Major Atom AAA semi-finals where they will face the Nepean Raiders.

Both Ramgers teams are hoping to advance to the championship round of the tournament which will be played at Scotiabank Place later in the day on Monday.

For four other local teams, their Bell Capital Cup jpurney came to a disappointing end on Sunday. The Gloucester Orleans Blues RepB Minor Peewee team lost 3-0 to the Ottawa Sting in the Minor Peewee A quarterfinals and the Gloucester Rangers Minor Atom Green team fell 5-2 to the Ottawa Silver Seven Black in the Minor Atom AA semi-finals.

The Cumberland Jr. Grads also failed to nake it through the Minor Atom AA semi-finals, losing 2-1 to the Kanata Blazers.after downing the Kingston Canadians 3-2 in overtime in the quarters, and the Orleans Ice Hogs lost 2-0 to the South End Vikings in the round of 16.
