Listowel Midget Reps fall just short in WOAA final

LISTOWEL – Despite a big second period rally, the Listowel midget rep Cyclones were unable to complete the comeback during the decisive Game 3 of their WOAA divisional final against the rival Kincardine Kinucks, dropping a 7-5 decision on March 27.

It was the second time in the 2014 post-season that Listowel faced Kincardine in an elimination series, having fallen to the Kinucks in the OMHA playoffs in four games in February.

After taking Game 1 4-2 at Memorial Arena on March 23, Kincardine responded with a 4-3 victory in Game 2 on March 25.

The Kinucks came out flying once again in Game 3, staking a 4-0 lead over the Cyclones by the early second period. Frustration began to show for Listowel, with both sides exchanging shots and trips to their respective penalty boxes.

But three second-period goals by Riley Conners, Owen Bender and captain Andrew Gooding kept Listowel in the game.

However, Kincardine was able to re-establish the three-goal cushion by the early third period and carry a 6-3 advantage deep into the final frame.

Gooding and Tyler Hak made things interesting with a pair of late 4-on-4 goals, but the Kinucks put the game away with an empty netter with 24 seconds remaining for a wild 7-5 final.
