2016-17 Boys Division-II Hockey Champions: Westmount Wildcats HAMILTON (February 28, 2017) – The Westmount Wildcats edged the Sir Winston Churchill Bulldogs 3-2 for the HWIAC boys division-II hockey title on Tuesday afternoon at Chedoke Twin Pad Arena.

Blake Dunford netted the game-winner late in the second period with assists coming from Jared McCarthy and Easton May. McCarthy opened the scoring for Westmount in the first period and recorded two points in the game while Brody Harris added a goal midway through the second period.

Eric Hicks and Ryan Chandler registered a goal apiece in the loss for the Bulldogs in a tightly contested game.

This was Westmount’s third hockey title and their first since 2011-12. It also marked the fourth time Westmount has played in the title game having met Churchill three times previous having won all but one of those meetings (2010-11).

For the Bulldogs this is the third straight year they have walked away empty handed at the finals.

While Sir Winston Churchill was unable to claim the city championship, they will represent Hamilton at the Southern Ontario Secondary School Association (SOSSA) ‘A/AA’ championship next week. The SOSSA championship goes March 7th at Niagara on the Lake Arena in Niagara on the Lake, Ont. For more information visit www.sossa.on.ca.
