AND IN SPORTS …
The Carleton Place Canadians find themselves in a difficult spot in the CCHL finals having lost three games in a row, something that didn’t happen to them for the entire season. But the Ottawa Jr Senators have put the nation’s #2 ranked team in a hole in the best-of-seven series … thanks to three straight wins including the last two in overtime. Ottawa won the opener 2-1 Friday night in Carleton Place … and then picked up a 3-2 OT win on Saturday at home. Last night, Tim Theocharidis scored in the second period to tie the game for the Canadians but Owen Guy found the net 12 minutes into the extra period for a 2-1 Ottawa win … and 3-0 stranglehold on the series. Game 4 is set for tomorrow night at the Jim Durrell Arena in Ottawa.
