The champions of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League have come up empty up at the Dudley-Hewitt Cup, Central Canada playdowns that are going on in Wellington, Ont.
Kirkland Lake Gold Miners were doubled up 6-3 by the Superior International Jr. Hockey League champion Fort Frances Lakers today and were thus eliminated from further play.
Kirkland Lake went winless at the four-team DHC, losing all three of its round-robin games.
Previously, Kirkland Lake lost 4-1 to the host Wellington Dukes and 4-1 to the Ontario Jr. Hockey League champion Toronto Lakeshore Patriots.
