Ex­press lose in Ice Jam semi­fi­nal

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The East­ern Ex­press fought a hard bat­tle Sun­day in a 2-0 loss to the Hal­i­fax Hawks in the semi­fi­nals of the Hal­i­fax Ice Jam hockey tour­na­ment.

The Ex­press killed off sev­eral penal­ties, in­clud­ing two two-man ad­van­tages, and was out­shot 5517. Goalie Erik MacIn­nis al­lowed a goal mid­way through the first pe­riod and the Hawks added an empty net­ter with 20 sec­onds re­main­ing in the third.

MacIn­nis was game MVP and se­lected to the tour­na­ment’s first all-star team. The Ex­press’s re­sult is the best for a P.E.I. ma­jor ban­tam team since the tour­na­ment be­gan in 2014.

The Hawks de­feated the St. John’s Hit­men in the fi­nal 2-0.
