Spitfires keep Memorial Cup


BRANDON, Manitoba – The Windsor Spitfires were crowned Memorial Cup champions after defeating the Brandon Wheat Kings 9-1 in Sunday’s championship game.

It’s the second straight Memorial Cup title for the back-to-back OHL champion Spitfires, marking the first time a team has won two straight Memorial Cup championships since the Kamloops Blazers accomplished the feat in 1994 and 1995.

The star-studded Spitfires put on an offensive clinic in the final, particularly in a dominant second period where they outshot the Wheat Kings 27-7. Taylor Hall led the way with a goal and two assists.

Hall earned his second straight tournament MVP award after putting up five goals and nine points in four games.
