As Junior C teams across the province battle for division championships, locally the Stayner Siskins are leading 3-0 over the Schomberg Cougars in their North Carruthers Division championship series of the Provincial Junior Hockey League.

The Siskins eliminated the Alliston Hornets in the semi-final round in a series that went seven games.

The Hornets were leading 3-0 in that series but lost four in a row to end the season and give the Stayner team the right to advance to the final.

The Cougars eliminated the Orillia Terriers in seven games in their semi-final series. That series was a tough battle that saw four of the games won by a single goal including one game that went into double overtime.

The Carruthers championship got underway on Thursday, April 7, on Stayner home ice.

It took an overtime period to settle the game with the Siskins leaving the ice with a 4-3 win after scoring at just over two minutes into the OT period.

Game Two of the series got underway at the Trisan Centre in Schomberg on Saturday, April 9.

After a close two periods that ended with Schomberg leading 3-2, the Siskins blew the game wide open in the third period scoring four unanswered goals to win 6-3.

The third game of the series was in Stayner on Sunday, April 10.

After a scoreless first period, the Cougars scored the only goal of the second frame.

The third period saw the Siskins tie it up, then go ahead with two more goals.

The Cougars scored late in the period but that’s all they could do for the day and the Stayner team left the ice with a 3-2 win and a 3-0 lead in the series.

The series was back in Schomberg for Game Four on Wednesday, April 13, with results not available at press time.
