Mayors of Halton Hills, Aurora make friendly wager over playoff hockey series


Published March 13, 2023 at 10:27 am

The stakes have been raised, a little bit, anyways, on the Georgetown Raiders playoff series with the Aurora Tigers.

Just prior to Game 1 of the first-round Ontario Junior Hockey League playoffs, Halton Hills Mayor Ann Lawlor responded to a Tweet from Aurora Mayor Tom Mrakas, laying down the gauntlet.

Challenges like this are common for mayors of teams that are playing each other and Mrakas wasted little time accepting.

So far, it looks like Lawlor will avoid having to wear a Tigers jersey as the Raiders have jumped out to a 2-0 lead, winning weekend games 4-3 and 2-1.

The heavily-favoured Raiders finished second in the OJHL North/West conference with 83 points in 54 games, trailing only Collingwood. Aurora finished seventh with 46 points.

The next game is Wednesday, Mar. 15, at 7:30 p.m. at Georgetown Mold Master Arena.
