Two prospects will be moving on with their teams while another will have to wait until next year to chase for their league championship. Both Owen Sound (Garrett Wilson) and Saginaw (John McFarland) won game six to move on to the next round of the OHL playoffs. For Quinton Howden and Moose Jaw, they weren't as lucky as they fell in their game six.

OWEN SOUND 1, LONDON 0
Owen Sound wins series 4-2

It was a closely guarded game between Owen Sound and London as the Attack tallied the lone goal with less than two minutes to play in a 1-0 victory. With the win, the top seed moves on to the next round. Both netminders were on Sunday night as they combined to stop 61 of the 62 shots. While Owen Sound's Michael Zador finished with the shutout (23 saves), Michael Houser was the busier netminder, facing 15, 11 and 13 shots in the periods and 39 overall. The only shot that found the back of the net came off the stick of Robby Mignardi with 1:41 remaining in the third period. Panthers prospect and Owen Sound captain Garrett Wilson has four points (three goals) in the series.

SAGINAW 6, GUELPH 5
Saginaw wins series 4-2

The Spirit rattled off five goals in a little over a period of play and held on to defeat Guelph 6-5 to move on to the second round of the OHL playoffs. It is just the second time in team history that they have won a playoff round. Guelph actually found the back of the net first as Latta scored 4:35 into the first period on a powr play. Saginaw's Vincent Trocheck answered just over 10 minutes later with his third of the series. The Storm retook the lead for the last time when Latta scored his second with 2:34 left in the opening stanza. Saginaw answered with just six seconds left in the period when Brandon Saad found the twine. The Spirit owned the second, scoring all three goals as Jordan Szwarz scored on the power play at the 7:20 mark, Dalton Prout netted one at 11:28 and Ivan Telegin scored his first with 4:49 left. They would make it 6-2 3:46 into the third when Trocheck netted his second of the contest. From there, they had to hold on as the Storm made a furious comeback attempt with the help of the powr play. Sam Lofquist scored 7:57 in, Holland scored on the man advantage 13:25 in and Latta finished out his hat trick with his second power play goal with 1:56 left in the game.

KOOTENAY 5, MOOSE JAW 4
Kootenay wins series 4-2

It was a disappointing end of the road for Moose Jaw after holding 1-0 and 2-1 leads in the series and with both victories coming via the shut out as they lost three straight, including 5-4 in game six. Kootenay scored the first three goals of the game to jump out to a large lead. B McNabb scored 1:36 into the first, M Reinhart made it 2-0 with 6:08 to play in the first and M Fraser netted his first of three 1:04 later. Moose Jaw would get one back just 39 seconds following Fraser's goal as B Lyon closed out the scoring in the period. Panthers prospect Quinton Howden got the Warriors to within one with a powr play goal 5:13 into the second while Fraser answered for Kootenay less than four minutes later for a 4-2 advantage. Howden set up Dylan Hood for another Warriors power play, giving them some hope with six minutes to play in the second. Fraser recorded his hat trick 9:22 into the the third while S Fioretti made it a 5-4 Kootenay lead with 8:03 to play. Unfortunately the home team could never find the equalizer as Nathan Lieuwen finished with 20 saves for the victory. For Howden, the Panthers first-round pick (25th overall) in this past summer's draft, his playoffs come to an end. He posted five goals and seven points in six games for the Warriors, continuing his torrid pace from the regular season win which he finished second in scoring on the team with 79 points (40 goal) in 60 games.
