A champion has been decided in the first-year Canadian International Hockey League.
Six goals in the third period was the difference as the Batchewana Attack put away the visiting Espanola Rivermen 9-2 on Wednesday to sweep the best-of-seven championship series in four straight games.
To be sure, it was close until the Attack erupted in the third period.
Batchewana led 3-2 after two periods on goals by Chris Zajac, Nate Harris and Rob Delury while Espanola countered with two markers from Jayden Southwind.
But it was all Attack in the third, as Batchewana scored six times to put an exclamation point on the title-clinching victory.
Delury and Harris scored their second goals of the night, while singles markers were tallied by Darian Pilon, Drake Pilon, Jacob Palmerio and Kendell Huckins.
