From Atom to Midget, these teams are getting closer to capturing a Pro Hockey Life Cup.

Minor Atom AAA
The Jr. Canadiens (14-0-1) notched their 14th win of the season on Friday, maintaining their undefeated record. The second place Toronto Titans (11-2-2) won their third straight in a 5-0 victory over the North York Rangers (2-11-1). Teams should be keeping an eye on the third place Vaughan Kings (9-1-3) who have not lost a game since falling to the Jr. Canadiens on October 6.

Markham Majors 5, Mississauga Rebels 1
Vaughan Kings 7, Toronto Marlboros 2

Can anybody stop the North York Knights (16-0-0)? The reigning Pro Hockey Life Cup and Scotiabank GTHL Playoff champions added a 5-2 victory to their undefeated record over the weekend. The Knights sit seven points ahead of the second place Leaside Flames (12-3-1). The Flames have now won five straight. Their last loss came at the hands of the first place Knights.

In the West, the Vaughan Rangers (13-0-2) remain on top despite not playing over the weekend. The Mississauga North Stars (12-1-2) are inching closer to first, sitting two points behind the Rangers. The Rangers and North Stars only meeting this year resulted in a draw. The reigning Pro Hockey Life Cup champions, the Mississauga Terriers, (8-3-4) currently sit in fourth. They will play the Humberview Huskies (3-10-2) on November 20.
