The Erindale Midget A Spitfires defeated Duffield Devils 4-1 on April 1 to win the GTHL “City Playdowns” 2 games to 1. Coach Craig McInnes and the team persevered after 6 years of losses in the MHL Finals with series wins over Applewood and Port Credit to earn the right to play in the GTHL Playdowns for the first time. Erindale won Game 1 of the series 2-0 before losing a 2-1 heartbreaker in overtime in Game 2. Game 3 saw Duffield score early in the second period to lead but Erindale responded with 4 goals in the next 4 minutes.
Congratulations and good luck at the OHFs in Woodstock on April 8-10.
