2019 OHL - HPHL Battle of the Border Series
Submitted By Al Judson on Tuesday, November 12, 2019
The Southern Tier Admirals Minor Midgets were in Windsor this weekend as one of the six teams representing Ontario in the 2019 OHL-HPHL Battle of the Border. The 6th Annual OHL Battle of the Border showcase in partnership with the High Performance Hockey League (HPHL) took place on the weekend of Friday, November 8, 2019 to Sunday, November 10, 2019 at the WFCU in Windsor, ON.

This event brings together the prospects from both sides of the border for a weekend of competition featuring many top players eligible for the OHL Priority Selection. A total of 36 games was played at the WFCU Centre, home of the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires between 24 teams divided into the Bantam Under -14 Division (introduced this season) and the Minor Midget Under-15 Division. All games will have three 17-minute periods with a flood occurring midway through the second period.  There will be a 3-on-3 overtime should games be tied after regulation time, followed by a three-man shootout if there is no overtime goal.  Total points accumulated by each country will determine the ‘Battle of the Border’ Champion.  Teams receive three points for a win, one point for each tie, and one extra point for an overtime or shootout win.  The United States have won all five events to date.

Under-15 Minor Midget teams representing Ontario include the Ajax-Pickering Raiders (OMHA – ETA), Southern Tier Admirals (OMHA – SCTA), Sun County Panthers (Alliance), Toronto Jr. Canadians (GTHL), Toronto Marlboros (GTHL), Toronto Titans (GTHL).

HPHL teams in the U15 division include Chicago Mission, Chicago Young Americans, Detroit Compuware, Detroit Honeybaked, Oakland Jr. Grizzlies, and Team Illinois.

In addition to the competition on the ice, players and their families will have the opportunity to watch the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires practice on Saturday morning at 10:30am at the WFCU-Grenon Rink and then at their game at 7:05pm at the WFCU- Main Bowl against the North Bay Battalion.

On Friday the Admirals lost 2-1 to the Chicago Mission
On Saturday the Admirals beat Team Illinois 2-1
On Sunday the Admirals would finish the showcase in style with a 2-1 victory against the Chicago Young Americans.

Both Mathew DeLuca and Tucker Adams played well in net for the Admirals.
Scoring for the Admirals this weekend was Andrew Leblanc, Trent Swick, Cam Lowe, Jacob Leblanc and Sam Alfano.

Despite the Admirals 2-1 win/loss record the United States were able to make it 6 titles in a row for the Battle of the Border Showcase.
