Final Score:...............St Catharines Roma Wolves............1..........Toronto Supra............0...........(in 2nd overtime
Attendance was about 300 on this wet rainy day. This game was broadcast by two cable companies. The stands were like sitting in a bus station and the pressbox wasn't much better as the Rogers generator pumped in carbon
monoxide all afternoon.
This was a very exciting game with plenty of chances at both ends and the momentum shifting back and forth.
