CSSHL Midget Prep – Edge takes #1 in final game

in Other News, regular season

 

Sunday, March 12, 2017

Final Standings are now set in all Canadian Sports School Hockey League divisions.

In the Midget Prep division, Edge wrapped up with six games in nine days, winning all six to take the top spot on the final game of the regular season, a 6-0 win over Northern Alberta on Sunday. Edge finished with a one point lead over OHA Red, who lead the league all season.

OHA Red finished with an 2-1 OT win over a determined Rink team, who needed to run the table over the weekend and hope for some help from Pursuit, to grab the last spot. However, OHA White finished with a win over Pursuit on Saturday to dash Rink’s hopes. Rink had downed OHA Red in another 2-1 OT outing on Friday night.

The Pursuit loss also meant they failed to move up in the standings, leaving Delta, Yale and Burnaby in the three through five spots.

OHA White’s win bumped them up from eighth to sixth place, although tied with NAX and Pursuit with 40 points.

NAX remained in seventh place after splitting their final two games – winning 5-4 in OT vs IHA on Saturday, before dropping the 6-0 game to Edge on Sunday.
