WILLIAMSTOWN—The North Dundas Major Midget Demons were forced to a game five for their last game of the season as they travelled to Williamstown on Wednesday night to take on the Char-Lan Rebels.
Rebels 5 Demons 0
The North Dundas Major Midget Demons travelled to the Char-Lan Recreation Centre in Williamstown on Wed., March 27, to take on the Rebels in game five of the first to five points UCMHL final. The Demons took the first two games of the series and had two chances to knock off the regular season champs, the Rebels, with a win or a tie.
The Demons came close in their past game but came up one goal short with a 3-2 loss. This game was for the championship, so the team would need to win the game outright or go to overtime to determine a winner.
