GTHL Playoffs Roundup: Mar. 3-10

Seven GTHL categories are down to the GTHL Championship series, including the Minor Midget AAA and Midget AAA age groups where teams are competing ahead of the OHL Cup and OHF Central Region Championship, respectively.
 
Minor Midget AAA
The Don Mills Flyers and Toronto Marlboros continue to wage a highly competitive series, with each team posting one win and four ties through six games. After a 16-day layoff for the 2015 Canada Games – where 11 GTHL members won a gold medal – the Flyers have rallied to take a 7-5 series lead. 
 
They will clinch the title with just one point in Game 7 on Friday at Scotiabank Pond (8:00 p.m.); otherwise the teams will return to the building on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. for the eighth and deciding game.
 
Midget AAA
With the Toronto Young Nationals hosting the 2015 Midget AAA Central Region Championship, they and the Don Mills Flyers already have punched their tickets to the provincial final. That said, they are battling it out in the GTHL Championship series, with the Flyers holding a 3-1 lead.
 
Game 3: Thursday, Mar. 12 at 8:15 p.m. at Thornhill Centre

The No. 1 seed North Stars picked up a 5-3 win in Game 1 on Sunday, before the clubs played to a 1-1 draw yesterday at Tomken.

North Toronto posted a 31-2-3 (65 points) record to capture the Kraft Cup as regular season champions, while the Thunder finished seven points back at 27-5-4 (58 points). The clubs were separated by only one goal in their two meetings this season, including a 5-4 win for North Toronto and a 3-3 tie.

The Mississauga Rebels lost only three times during the regular season, including one defeat to the Toronto Marlboros – the only club keeping them from adding a Scotiabank GTHL Playoffs crown to their trophy shelf alongside their Kraft Cup. That said, the Rebels have opened the championship series with 4-2 and 5-0 wins to pull ahead 4-0 in their first-to-eight-points matchup.

Peewee AAA
It should come as now surprise that the Toronto Marlboros and Toronto Jr. Canadiens are tied 2-2 through two games in their first-to-eight-points GTHL Championship series. The Marlboros (27-2-4, 58 points) and Jr. Canadiens (24-2-7, 55 points) finished only three points apart in the Kraft Cup regular season, with each club posting a 1-1-1 record in head-to-head meetings.
