Thistles end the Dundas Real McCoys season

It’s over.

The Real McCoys hopes of playing for Canada’s senior hockey title were quickly dashed by the Kenora Thistles on Saturday (April 7). Jeff Richards scored three times as Kenora defeated Dundas 6-1 to sweep the best-of-three Ontario Hockey Federation Renwick Cup championship in two games in the JL Grightmire Arena. Kenora opened the playoff with a 5-2 win on Friday night.

The Thistles now advance to the Allan Cup Tournament at Lloydminster, Saskatchewan from Monday, April 16 to Saturday, April 21.

Rounding out the scoring for the Hockey Northwestern Ontario representatives were Tyler Woodisse, Wesley Thom, and Matt Johnson.

Cam Watson managed the lone goal for the Real McCoys who will be hosts for the Allan Cup final in 2014.
