They hung around for 6 games but the pesky Pickering Panthers were finally been put down, and emphatically so by the Wellington Dukes in game 7.
Jackson Arcan scored twice with an assist as Wellington pounded Pickering 6-2 to advance to round 2 of the OJHL playoffs. The shots on goal tell the story. 41-18 Wellington. Dawson Ellis, Andrew Rinaldi, Ben Evans and Isaac Langdon also scored in front of the big crowd at the Essroc Arena.
Round 2 begins Friday night at 7:30 with Wellington hosting Newmarket at the Essroc Arena. It should be quite a series. Wellington finished second in the North-East conference with 74 points. Newmarket had 73.
