TNT Minor Midget AA win OMHA title
Game one was down in Burlington which saw TNT play a dominant style of hockey winning 6-0. Game two was a complete reversal. Burlington traveled to the NTRC and didn't want to go down by two games. They played us hard and gritty and came away with a 7-0 victory. Series tied at a game each. Game 3 turned out to be a balanced affair with a closer score, 5-3 for the Tornados. Game 4 was back at the NTRC. The local fan support was outstanding with many coming to watch the game. TNT scored the first goal 21 seconds after the opening face off. Turns out that's the only goal they would need. The Tornados came away with 5 to 0 win and took the series in 4 games.
