The Ontario Hockey Association has upheld a protest by the Essex 73’s in their Jr. C Championship series with the Picton Pirates.
Essex were upset that Pirates forward Evan Greer was penalized for three stick infractions in Game 1, and never got a game misconduct, which is called for under the rules.
After Essex won Game 2 in Picton, they filed the protest.
The league has decided the result from Game 1 will be wiped out and the game will be restarted in Picton on May 1st with 19:47 to play in the third period and Picton up 2-1.
Games 3 and 4 are to be played before that, in Essex this weekend.
If Essex win both of those games and lead 3-0 going back to Picton, the restart will be played after the scheduled game on May 1st, but if the series is 2-1 the restart will be played before that game.
