Around the G: Nov. 18-20

After over two months of on-ice action, see what teams are shaping up to be Kraft Cup contenders.

Minor Peewee AAA

A relatively quiet weekend in the division didn’t stop teams from shaking up the standings. After winning their third straight, the Jr. Canadiens (13-1-0) managed to tie the Toronto Titans (13-1-0) for first in the division. The teams now have identical records after 14 games in the books. Meanwhile, the Toronto Marlboros (9-4-1) maintained their third place position after a tight 3-2 win over the Mississauga Rebels. The race to the Kraft Cup is sure to come down to the final buzzer.

The Leaside Flames (15-0-0) are the beasts of the East after winning their 15th straight on Saturday. Sitting in first, the Flames remain undefeated on the season. The Don Mills Mustangs (14-2-0) are only two points back of first after winning their third straight, giving the Flames some motivation to keep up their pace. Teams should keep an eye on the Toronto Aeros (5-5-4) who haven’t lost a game since October 25.

The race in the West remains wide open. The Humberview Huskies (13-2-1) currently sit in first after their third straight win. Close behind are the Vaughan Rangers (12-3-1) who defeat the Vaughan Panthers on Sunday to win their sixth straight. They’ll try to make it seven on Friday when they face the Toronto Royals (6-5-3).

Teams should keep a watchful eye on the first place Streetsville Tigers (10-3-3) who remain undefeated in their last seven.

In the East, teams are looking to play catch-up with the Scarborough Young Bruins (9-1-5) and Ted Reeve Thunder (11-3-1) who remain tied for first. After a loss to North Toronto on Sunday, the third place Markham Islanders (5-5-4) remain nine points back of first.
