What a difference a year makes. One season ago, the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs didn’t have a Midget AAA team. Now, they’re the best team in the Alliance. The Chiefs romped through the regular season with just two regulation-time losses in 35 games, posting a ridiculous 56 goals against. Elgin-Middlesex took control early with 18 wins and an overtime loss in its first 20 games, and it ran off 14 consecutive victories from Dec. 17 to Jan. 26. Michael McKnight and Nathan Small paced the league-leading offence with 43 points apiece, while goaltenders Jackson Mailloux and Bryce Walcarious combined for nine shutouts.
