Reds bow out in five games

The Thornhill Reds gave it a good shot, but ultimately fell short in their quest for an elusive Nationals berth as one of the top two teams in Ontario.

The Reds finished at 3-2 on the weekend, eliminating the perennial powerhouse Windsor Stars in round four. Thornhill lost 4-0 to runner up Mississauga SW, on Sunday afternoon, showing they are right in the mix among the province's best.

Thornhill plays their final four league games this week in GTBL action, and if the club can muster three wins, they will claim the GTBL pennant and a first place finish. Failing that, a second place finish seems imminent. Both first and second place finishers in league play receive first round byes for the preliminary playoff round, and advance to one of two semi finals.
