Centre Wellington captures OMHA bantam AE2 crown
MERRITTON – The Centre Wellington Fusion claimed the Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s bantam AE2 crown Sunday afternoon when they defeated Garden City Merritton 4-2 at the Merritton arena.
That win gave the Fusion a 6-2 victory in the six-point series.
The Fusion had opened the series with a 5-1 win at the Elora and District Community Centre March 16 and Garden City Merritton responded with a 3-2 win at Merritton the following day. Centre Wellington reclaimed the lead in the series with a 6-2 win at Fergus Saturday.
The championship is Centre Wellington’s first in the category as the Fusion had never reached the provincial final in bantam AE2 before.
The Fusion knotted their six-point OMHA midget A championship series with the Woolwich Wildcats following a 3-2 victory Sunday at Elmira.
That result squared the series 4-4.
The Fusion had taken the opening game 3-2 at Fergus March 16 before Woolwich responded with a 5-0 win at Elmira March 17 and a 2-1 victory at Fergus Saturday night.
The teams are to meet Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. at the Centre Wellington Sportsplex for Game 5.
If Game 6 is necessary, and that would only happen if Game 5 finishes in a tie, it is slated for Friday at 8:30 p.m. at Elmira.
