Sudbury U18 Nickel Capitals will take a record of 1-1 into today’s round-robin finale at the Great North Under 18 Hockey League’s playoff championship tournament.

A win over the North Bay U16 Trappers today will advance the U18 Nickel Capitals into the semi-finals of the league’s eight-team event that is being held in Sault Ste. Marie.

The U18 Nickel Capitals began Day 1 of the tournament on Thursday with a 7-1 loss to the powerhouse Soo U18 Greyhounds.
