Kilty B’s top Mets to take 3-2 series lead

By Bill Potrecz (BPSN)

The Hamilton Kilty B’s scored a pair of goals 38 seconds apart early in the third period to break a 1-1 tie en route to a 4-1 win over the Fort Erie Meteors on home ice Monday.

The Kilty B’s lead the series 3-2 and can advance to the finals with a win in Fort Erie Wednesday. Game 7, if necessary, would be in Hamilton Friday.

“We weren’t great tonight but the guys know that,” Fort Erie head coach/general manager Nik Passero said. “It was our first bad game in two months.

“I have absolutely no concern we will be ready to go Wednesday in front of our crowd.”

Passero said the Mets appreciated their fans making the trek to Hamilton.

“We want to thank all the Fort Erie fans that drove up tonight. Made it feel like a home game for us.”

Nathan Phillips had two goals for the Kilty B’s while Justin Monteith added one.

Doug Doren netted the lone Fort Erie goal.
