73's Down Lakeshore 3-1

The Essex 73's are just a win away from claiming the Stobbs Division Championship are they downed the Canadiens 3-1 last night at the Atlas Tube Centre.

Lakeshore finished first in the regulars season, but they've been unable to solve the 73's in the playoffs and now trail that Division final, three games to none.

Michael Vieira scored twice including a late empty-netter for the 73's, which will host game four tomorrow night.

Eric Shaw also scored for Essex while Connor Rosaasen had the lone Lakeshore marker.
