They went on to defeat the Caledon Golden Hawks in five games in the semi-final series.

Penetang came to the final series after a huge semi-final upset win over the first place Stayner Siskins taking the series in a four game sweep to amazement of fans in both camps.

Game three went to Penetang ice.

After scoring single in the first period the Hornets took command of the ice in the second when they scored three unanswered goals to lead 4-0.

The Kings got on the scoreboard with a couple in the third period but two more Alliston goals sealed the deal and the Hornets left the ice with a 6-2 win and three game lead in the best-of-seven series.

Game four of the series got underway in Penetang on Wednesday (Mar.13) night with results not available at press time.
