The Stars have home ice advantage with games in Napanee Saturday at 7 p.m and Sunday at 1 p.m.

The locals stack up well having a 22-0-0 regular season record compared to the St. Mary’s Rock’s 19-0-1. In the playoffs, the Stars are 10-0-1 while the Rock are 9-3-0.

Goals for and goals against in the playoffs are 93-13 for Napanee; 44-26 for St. Mary’s.

They’ll look to make the most of their home ice advantage this week and build an early lead before they hit the road.

– The Novice AFW Construction BB Stars lost 4-2 on Sunday in Newcastle in their fifth game in the series to end their playoff run. They fell behind early on before Ben Kerr scored to make it 2-1. Wyatt Whalen contributed the other, and they removed the goalie for an extra attacker, but to no avail.

On Saturday, their guests built a three goal lead before Colton Lockridge scored on a rebound that Camden Arthur had sent toward the net. Their guests added two more to make it 5-1 for Newcastle.

The shots on goal were 16-11 for their opponents. Combined with an earlier 4-2 loss and a 2-2 tie meant that Sunday’s game was a must for Napanee.

– The Atom BB Stars, after an incredible year, finally were eliminated from further play in the OMHA semifinals by another excellent team, the Midland Centennials (54-3-2).

The locals were edged 2-1 on Saturday on the road with Dylan Kemp contributing the only goal for the Stars. Friday night in Midland, the squad lost 3-1.

The Napanee team had a season record of 27-3-2, with 13 straight wins to start out their regular season.

Up to this point, they are the only playoff team to gain a win over the Centennials.

– The Joyce’s Meats & Deli Atom AE’s dominated Centre Hastings 10-1 in an exhibition game last Sunday. Goal scorers were Scott Scrimshaw (three), Drew Osborne (two), Evan Godfrey (two), Ben Szuch, Wyatt Albright, and Sam McCaw.
