The South Dundas Peewee B House #1 Lions won the UCMHL East Division Championship here Monday night, March 18 with a 3-1 win over Brockville.
The Lions opened the series on Morrisburg ice, Sunday, (March 17), with a 6-1 victory to claim the first two points of the four point series.
Monday night in Brockville, they went up 1-0 in the first period with an unassisted goal by Devon Dumoulin, after he broke up a two on one, skated the length of the ice, and deposited the puck in the five hole.
A scoreless second period featured very tight checking and kept the fans on the edges of their seats.
Then early into the third period, Brockville’s Ryan Duke tied it 1-1 from a scramble in front of the Lions net.
The Lions, however, responded quickly and just over a minute later Lucas Bennis again gave them a 2-1 lead with help from Jonah Bennis and Dumoulin.
Following the goal, the now frustrated Brockville team took a five minute roughing major which put the Lions on their power play. It was an opportunity they made the best of when Jonah Bennis, with a nice move on the Brockville goalie deposited the insurance marker with help from Noah Keeler and Sheridan Caines.
Brockville fought hard, and they pulled their goalie for the last minute of play, but Lions goaltender Wes Alexander stood tall and prevented them from getting back into the game.
The Lions are now preparing for the UCMHL championship final against the House #2 Lions starting this Friday night.
