The Minor Bantam ‘AAA’ Toyota Challenge appears to be going right down to the wire. With the Cambridge Hawks and Kitchener Junior Rangers battling to a 2-2 draw at Grand River Arena on Wednesday night, the standings remain extremely tight after four games of the six-game round-robin.
The Junior Rangers needed a late goal by Nicolas Thibodeau to salvage the draw, after Cooper Walker had given the Hawks a 2-1 lead.
Noah Kirk also scored for Cambridge (1-1-1), while Daniel Amorim had opened the scoring for Kitchener (1-0-2).
Along with the Waterloo Wolves (0-1-1), the three 'AAA' Minor Bantam boys’ teams are playing for the chance to travel to Hokkaido, Japan for a cultural exchange in March, 2016.
The next round-robin game sees Waterloo host Kitchener this Friday night (8:00 pm) at RIM Park (Pillers).
The top two teams in the round-robin will play for the Toyota Challenge title on Saturday, November 14th (3:30 pm) at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium.
