Royals hockey OFSAA bid falls short

News Mar 16, 2011 Ancaster News

The clock has struck midnight on the Ancaster Royals’ Cinderella season in boys hockey.

The shorthanded Royals lost 7-0 to Denis Morris of St. Catharines on March 8 at the Southern Ontario Secondary Schools Association championships in Port Colborne.

With SOSSA receiving two entries to this year’s OFSSA AAA/Quad-A provincial championships, the Royals needed Morris to beat Burlington’s Notre Dame Secondary. Notre Dame upset Morris 3-2, eliminating Ancaster from OFSAA contention.

Playing without their first line centre who was away on a family vacation and a third line centre who was assessed a one-game suspension for fighting, the Royals struggled to sustain any offense at SOSSA. Two other Royals were battling the flu, Royals coach Mike Walsh said.

Ancaster advanced to SOSSA after beating the Waterdown Warriors 2-1 in a best of three series for the Hamilton public city championship.
