Glenlawn Lions, KE Reivers Advance to the Finals

Thrilling, nail-biting, edge of your seat …… are the words that describe both semi-final deciding games in the 2018-19 Hire Marketing Division Playoffs yesterday.

At the East End Arena, the first ranked CPET Canadiennes opened the scoring against the fourth ranked KE Reivers with two goals in the first period, one at 5:23 (Baker, Murphy, St. Laurent) and another at 4:32 (Andrews, Snare). In the final seconds of the period, the Reivers managed to get on the board (Goulet, Fontaine) for a 2-1 first period score. The second period was hard fought with opportunities for both teams, and despite numerous power play opportunities, the second period remained scoreless. The momentum shifted in the third period with the Reivers scoring two goals, one at 15:58 (Baptiste, Cooke) and another at 11:45 (Becker, Alexander). Now down by a goal, the Canadiennes maneuvered up and down the ice looking for an opportunity but were denied. Final Score Reivers 3-2.

The second ranked Scorpions faced the third ranked Glenlawn Lions this evening on home ice. With the series tied 1-1, both teams played to win. The Lions opened the scoring with a goal at the 6:00 mark of the first period (Clarke, Cyrenne, Aptekmann). That goal went unanswered by the Scorpions until the 9:08 mark of the second period (Romanishen, Neil). Early in the third period, Lorette scored again (Boles, Neil, Romanishen), but that goal was quickly answered by the Lions. With the minutes counting down, the Lions scored a breakaway goal at 5.58 (Leonard) to defeat the Scorpions. Final Score Lions 3-2.
