The Fredericton Caps defeated the Moncton Flyers by a score of 3 - 2 in the seventh game of their "first to eight points" NB Major U18 AAA Championship Series. The Caps did it dramatic fashion coming from behind in not only the seventh game of the series, but the sixth game as well. The series proved to be a classic with four of the seven games being decided by one goal. This is the first Championship for Fredericton since the 2010 - 2011 season.
Both Moncton and Fredericton will move on to the Major U18 AAA Atlantics being held in Fredericton at Willie O'Ree Place March 30th - April 2nd, hosted by the Fredericton Caps. Moncton will enter the Atlantics as Team New Brunswick. Team Prince Edward Island represented by the Charlottetown Knights, Team Newfoundland and Labrador represented by the Pinnacle Growlers, and Team Nova Scotia representated by Weeks U18 Majors round out the teams attending.
Based on the season all these teams have had the Atlantics should be extremely competitive with any team capable of winning the Atlantic Title.
