The Dartmouth Steele Subaru Major Midgets did what they needed to do and have a 2-0 series lead, taking both games of their semi-final on home ice this past weekend.
The series underdog Halifax McDonald’s put up an impressive fight though, as both games were decided by one goal.
Dartmouth took game one by a score of 4-3 on Saturday evening, and were then pushed to the limit on Sunday in game two, winning 6-5 in an exciting overtime matinee.
They now have three chances to close out the best of five, and look to do so this coming Saturday at the Halifax Civic Centre. Game time is at 12:00.
If necessary, game four goes on Sunday in Halifax, and game five would be Tuesday night at 7:00 pm back at the Dartmouth Sportsplex.
