The UCMHL ma­jor mid­get cham­pi­onship will be up for grabs next week, when the NGS Braves take on South Grenville.

The se­ries opens Sun­day in Prescott, with game two in Maxville on March 25 at 7 p.m.

NGS earned its berth in the fi­nals, af­ter skat­ing to a March 12 vic­tory in Maxville over the South Stor­mont Se­lects to claim the east ban­ner.

This was a high-tempo con­test, where the Braves shone on the penalty kill and NGS goal­tender Tom Mey­er­hans was solid, back­stop­ping a shutout into the third pe­riod.

Af­ter a score­less first frame, Dy­lan Seguin broke the ice with a sweet wris­ter. Tay­lor Met­calfe made it 2-0 early in the third on a beauty back­han­der.

The Se­lects fi­nally solved Mey­er­hans with 2:45 left, but D. Seguin iced the vic­tory with an empty-net­ter, mak­ing fi­nal.

it a 3-1

Brady Tan­ner had three as­sists in the game, the oth­ers to Derrick Pilon and Cameron Howes. – through to club vet­er­ans who danced their way around the ice.
