Soo Thunderbirds win Dudley Hewitt Cup

Soo Thunderbirds have won the franchise’s first-ever Dudley Hewitt Cup and in the process become the first Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League team to win the Central Canada Jr. Hockey title since the Rayside-Balfour Sabrecats did so in 2002.

Despite being outshot 47-18, the Thunderbirds edged the Ontario Jr. Hockey League champion Stouffville Spirit 5-3 tonight to win the DHC and advance to the Royal Bank Cup, national playdowns, that will be held in Humboldt, Sask. next month.
