They had the only perfect round-robin record in the tourney, but the Central IcePak couldn’t get past the quarter-final playoff round in the major midget division of the Chronicle Herald East Coast Ice Jam hockey tournament this weekend in Halifax.

The IcePak, one of four Newfoundland teams in the tourney, went 3-0 in the preliminary round and easily defeated the Cape Breton West Islanders 6-1 in the round-of-16 that opened the playoffs, but lost 3-2 in overtime to the Moncton Flyers in a Saturday quarter-final.

Also losing in the quarter-finals, and also by a 3-2 score, were the St. John’s Maple Leafs, who fell to the Cole Harbour Wolfpack. The Leafs had gone 1-1-1 in the preliminary round before edging the Newbridge Academy Gladiators 4-3 in the round of 16.

The Western Kings, who lead the Newfoundland and Labrador major midget league, fell 4-2 to the Charlottetown Islanders in the round of 16 after going 2-1 in round-robin play.

The St. John’s Privateers didn’t make it to the playoffs after going 0-3 in preliminary play.

Cole Harbour and the Halifax McDonald’s Midgets are meeting in the championship game this afternoon.
