For the third consecutive year, Waterloo and London will meet with the Alliance championship up for grabs. With Waterloo having won both of those meetings, and the past three Alliance titles, the Jr. Knights will look to conquer the reigning champion with arguably the best team currently in the province and possibly the best team to wear the Jr. Knights jerseys.
London has cruised their way to the championship series. London powered their way past Sun County in the opening round and then had very little trouble sweeping away an incredibly talented Cambridge team in the second round. London has been led by some familiar faces through their seven postseason games with top OHL Draft prospect Ryan Suzuki leading the way with 18 points while talented winger Aidan Prueter has eight goals and 16 points.
The Saturday night home game has become a bit of a tradition at RIM Park. Waterloo consistently takes the ice at 7pm and has been quite successful on their home ice. The Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs were having none of that as they walked into the arena and beat Waterloo in nearly every facet of the 50 minutes they played.
The Chiefs came into this game winning their past two games after a deflating defeat at the hands of the London Jr. Knights. They were sitting in the middle of the standings looking up at some solid teams despite some huge wins on the season. The Chiefs are the only team to hand London a loss this season.
The Wolves had won five in a row going into Saturday night and were unbeaten in their past seven. Waterloo was cruising and asserting themselves as a top team, which has been the trend over the past few seasons. Click here for full article
