Jeremiah Addison scored his third, fourth and fifth goals of the tournament and Mikhail Sergachev contributed the game-winning goal as the host Windsor Spitfires booked their spot in the Memorial Cup final with a 4-2 win over the Erie Otters on Wednesday.
Addison potted two first-period goals to put the host team up 2-0 after 20. Just 43 seconds into the middle frame, Sergachev scored the eventual game-winner, his first marker of the tournament. Addison completed his hat trick at 13:31 of the third to give the Spitfires an insurance goal.
The 6-foot, 190 lb. Addison finished the night with four shots and a plus-3 differential on top of his three goals and was named the game's first star. Sergachev, meanwhile, registered five shots on net and a plus-1 differential and earned third-star honors. Michael DiPietro made 33 saves in the win.
Kyle Maksimovich and Taylor Raddysh were the goal-scorers for the losing side, while Troy Timpano made 15 saves for the Otters.
The Spitfires now await the winner of Friday's semi-final game between the Saint John Sea Dogs - and Habs prospect Simon Bourque - and the Otters. The championship game is scheduled for Sunday.
