FORT ERIE – The Guelph Junior Gryphons captured the Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s minor bantam AAA championship Sunday.

The Junior Gryphons claimed the OMHA title with a 3-2 victory over the Central Ontario Wolves in the gold-medal game.

The locals gained their berth in the final by finishing second behind Central Ontario in the five-team round robin. Central Ontario finished at 3-0-1 while the Junior Gryphs were at 2-1-1.

After splitting a pair of games Friday, the Junior Gryphs completed their round robin Saturday by tying the Whitby Wildcats 3-3 and edging the Oakville Rangers 3-2.
