Stage Set for Final 3 Championship Games ("A" & "B" Semi-final Games Results)
Submitted By Craig Metzger on Sunday, February 9, 2020
The last semi-final games have been played and we're ready to move on to the "A", "B", & "C" Championship games.

"B" Semi-finals
Sunday started with the Petrolia Oilers facing the South Huron Sabres in the first "B" semi-final game. South Huron got off to a strong start with a goal a couple minutes in and another 30 seconds later. The Sabres' 2-0 lead carried over into the second period. The second period was relatively uneventful with no scoring, although the Oilers did take a penalty that they were successful in killing off. The third period saw the Oilers score in the first 10 seconds and then again a minute or so later to tie the game 2-2. The Oilers took a penalty five minutes later that the Sabres took advantage of to go up 3-2. The Oilers bounced right back and scored a couple minutes later to make it 3-3. The Sabres took a penalty with just over 2 minutes to go in the period but were successful in holding off the Oilers to force overtime. The three minute 4 on 4 overtime started tentatively but then picked up. After some back and forth the game winning goal by the Oilers came with 1:40 remaining. The Oilers now advance to the "B" Final.

The second "B" semi-final saw the Goderich Sailors play the Listowel Cyclones. It was a closely played contest that began with a scoreless first period. The Cyclones took a tripping penalty midway through the second period that the Sailors quickly capitalized on with a goal fifteen seconds into the power play to take a 1-0 lead. The Cyclones managed to even up the score with a goal just before the second period ended. The evenly matched play continued into the third period. The Sailors regained the lead almost halfway into the period and then added a couple more goals around the three minute mark to go up 4-1. The Sailors took a penalty with a couple minutes to go and finished the game shorthanded since the Cyclones didn't score on the resulting power play. With the 4-1 win the Sailors moved on to the "B" Final.

"A" Semi-finals
The Lambton Shores Predators Black and Lambton Shores Predators Red (yes, two teams from Lambton Shores) squared off in the first "A" semi-final game. After a scoreless first period, it was the Predators Black who opened the scoring with 4:11 left in the second. The Predators Red immediately responded with their own goal to tie it up. The third period saw the Predators Black regain their lead about halfway through the period. Again the Predators Red quickly responded with a goal to tie it up 2-2. The play continued to elevate as the clock ticked down. With less than 3 minutes to go, it was the Predators Red that broke the tie and got their first lead at 3-2. The Predators Red added an empty net goal in the final minute to win the game 4-2 and advance to the "A" Final at 4:50pm.

The last semi-final game to determine who advanced was between the Lucan Irish and the Blyth-Brussels Crusaders. It was a tight, back and forth game. The Irish opened the scoring late in the first period but the Crusaders immediately responded with their own goal to tie it up. The Irish added a second goal midway through the second period to establish a 2-1 that they carried into the third. The Crusaders scored a power play goal about five minutes into the third period to tie the game. The Irish regained the lead with about seven minutes to go and held on for the 3-2 win and advancement to the "A" Final.
