North Bay Trappers upended Thunder Bay Kings 3-1 this afternoon to take home the gold medal from the Northern Ontario Hockey Association’s minor midget tournament of champions that was held in Sault Ste. Marie over the weekend.
Sault Ste. Marie product David Campbell scored the winning goal and added an assist to pace North Bay to its title tilt triumph over Thunder Bay.
Earlier today, North Bay advanced to the championship match with a 1-0 semi-final win over the Soo Thunderbirds, who received an over-the-top, spectacular netminding effort from goalie Noah Zeppa in defeat.
Thunder Bay made it to the finals by virtue of a 2-1 victory over the Sudbury Wolves in the other semi-final.
North Bay, Sudbury and the Soo are all part of the minor midget division of the Great North Midget Hockey League while Thunder Bay plays from within Hockey Northwestern Ontario.
