The Tod Division champion Port Hope Panthers will face the Orr Division champion Lakefield Chiefs for the Eastern Conference title in the Ontario Hockey Association’s Junior C circuit. Lakefield completed a four-game sweep of the Clarington Eagles with a 5-2 win Thursday in Lakefield. The Panthers are undefeated to date after sweeps of the Picton Pirates and Napanee Raiders. Port Hope has advanced to the Schmalz Cup final the past two seasons. The series schedule has yet to be finalized, but will start sometime this week.
