The St. Marys Cascades Peewee ‘C’ girls are off to the Provincials next month in Toronto.

Scott Richardson’s squad earned a spot in the year-end championship tournament with a 3-1 victory over the Stratford Aces Thursday night at the PRC.

The Cascades Peewees are involved in a four-team, home-and-home, OWHA round-robin playoff series with Stratford, Wingham/Lucknow and South Huron -- with the top two teams advancing to the Provincials.

On Thursday, the Peewee Rock scored the game’s final two goals in the third period to pull out the victory.

Charlee Pickering scored two goals for St. Marys, including one into an empty Stratford net in the final minute to seal the win. Charlotte Richardson had the other goal for the home team, and her late third-period marker snapped a 1-1 tie and proved to be the winner.

The net win went to Marta Rintoul. “She’s been playing well,” assistant coach Jeff Richardson said.

After tying the first two games of the round-robin series, the Cascades Peewees won the next three games. They complete their series of six games Friday, hosting Wingham/Lucknow at the PRC. “The girls would like to be undefeated (in the series),” coach Jeff Richardson added.

Cement Midgets advance

In a Shamrock League playoff game Thursday night, the Cement ‘BB’ Midgets skated to a 4-0 victory over the visiting Lambton Shores Predators.

With the win, Brent Rae’s Cement men completed a three-game sweep of their SHL semi-final series. In the three games, the Rock out-scored the Preds 11-3.

In Thursday’s game, centre Ethan Froggett paced the St. Marys offence with a goal and three assists. Froggett fired what proved to be the game winner at 2:31 of the first period from defenceman George Hensel.

In the second period, goals by Kaleb Schalk and Keegan Nethercott boosted the lead to 3-0, with Froggett assisting on both. Carter Reid completed the scoring with just over five minutes remaining in the third. Logan Hodkinson picked up his second assist of the night on the goal.

The shutout went to Jake Bryans, who wasn’t severely tested. The game didn’t have much intensity and the Cement men appeared to play just as well as they had to.

In Game 2 of the series Tuesday in Forest, the Cement Midgets defeated the Predators 4-2.

Captain Nathan Reay scored twice for St. Marys, including one on a powerplay. Keegan Nethercott and Paolo Linares (powerplay) had the other tallies, and Aaron Waugh earned the net win.

Overall, the Rock out-shot Lambton Shores 44-18.

Rae and his Cement Midgets will now play either Dresden, South Kent or Mooretown in the Shamrock final. Those three teams have been playing a round-robin series.
