’20-’21 Tigers Upset Top-Seeded ’24-’25 Tigers to Advance in Qualifier

The top seed of the Hamilton Tigers Qualifying Tournament is out. The ’20-’21 Tigers are moving on after their seven game upset of the ’24-’25 Tigers. Offensive outbursts from Joe Malone, Goldie Prodgers and Mickey Roach spurred the underdogs onto victory. Just by taking a look at their four wins, you can see that those three were very instrumental in this upset. The trio of Malone-Prodgers-Roach combined for a total of 11 points in Game 3 and 14 points in Game 6. However, in the deciding Game 7, the ’20-’21 Tigers would not have won if their netminder, Howard Lockhart, played as well as he did. He did allow four goals to the ’24-’25 Tigers, but that is nothing compared to the 61 saves he made in that game.
