Toronto Titans Day Three Alliance Recap

Day three of the Toronto Titans tournament is when things really got kicked off. As the long distance teams begin arriving in town for the tournament, most teams will get their first game of the tournament underway, while others like the Hamilton Huskies will play their third in three nights already.

Results wise, it’s hard to say that Thursday’s play wasn’t a disappointing outcome for the Alliance squads in attendance. All nine teams had games and the overall record was just 2-7. It should be noted for some of these teams it was their first action of the year and there are still some kinks to work out.

Chatham-Kent off to a rough start, losing 10-1 to the Toronto Marlboros

Following an appearance in the OHL Cup quarter-finals last season, the Sun County Panthers have some big shoes to fill in order to replicate that success.

When the 2002 born Sun County Panthers were on, there wasn’t a more entertaining team. Chalked full of speed, the Panthers had a deadly first line that included Matt Maggio, Ryan Gagnier and Zane Dalpe that took the league by storm to begin the year. While the offense was always there, the defense left the team wanting more and it was the defense that ultimately saw their demise in the semi-finals against London. A wild card win over the Toronto Titans was the beginning of an OHL Cup run that got the team to the final 8.
