Cement Midgets, Jr. Rockets going to deciding game
Teams deadlocked at five points apiece after five OMHA playoff games

The Cement ‘BB’ Midgets and Strathroy Jr. Rockets are going to a sixth and deciding game to determine an OMHA series winner. The winner advances to the provincial quarter-finals.

The Cement men also went six games in their opening-round series, before dispatching the Dorchester Dragons.

In Game 5 Saturday in Strathroy, the Jr. Rockets won 3-1 to tie the six-point playoff series at five points apiece.

“The pucks weren’t going our way, but Strathroy came out and deserved to win . . . they were winning the battles,” St. Marys coach Brent Rae reported. “It’s tough to win when you’re not winning the little battles.”

Jr. Rockets opened the scoring on a powerplay midway through the first period, and then netted what proved to be the winner directly off a face-off with just 35 seconds remaining in the middle frame.

The Cement men scored their lone goal with about five minutes left in the third. Defenceman Mason Boonstra was the marksman after a nice pass from winger Keegan Nethercott. The Rock pulled goalie Aaron Waugh for a sixth attacker, “and we had one good chance before they scored into the empty net with eight seconds left,” Rae said.

He added that Waugh played well in net.

Game 6 is Monday at the PRC (Rock rink), starting at 8:30 p.m.
