Jr. Canadiens overpower Jr. 67s in OHL Cup semi-final

By Fred Sherwin

The Ottawa Jr. 67s minor midget AAA quest for the Ottawa and District Minor Hockey Association's first OHL Cup ended in disappointment Saturday night thanks to an 8-0 blowout courtesy of the Toronto Jr. Canadiens.

The Jr. 67s went into the game having doubled up the Vaughan Kings in their afternoon quarterfinal. Their conidence was further buoyrd by the fact they gave the Jr. Canadiens all they could handle in a 3-2 loss to the Toronto-area team in the round robin portion of the tournament.

Their confidence was quickly put to the test, however, when the Jr. Canadiens came out flying at the start of the first period and scored a goal at the 29 second mark. They added an even strength goal less than four minutes later and then added a power play goal and a short-handed marker less than two minutes apart with the game not yet 10 minutes old.

The Jr. 67s tried to battle back in the secon period, but their hard work didn't bare any fruit. After the Jr. Canadiens scored another goal at the 2:30 mark of the third, the writing was clearly on the wall.

The Jr. Canadiens would add three more for good measure before the final buzzer ended Jr 67's season.

The Gloucester Ranger laden team finished first in the Ontario East Minor Hockey standings, but were defeated by the second place Ottawa Valley Titans in the final round of the OEMHL playoffs.
