The Cambridge RedHawks season ended Tuesday night with a loss at Galt Arena Gardens.

The Cambridge RedHawks' run as defending Cherrey Cup champions came to a close Tuesday night with a 2-0 loss in Game 4 of their best-of-seven Midwestern Conference series against the Stratford Warriors.

The win secured the four-game sweep for the Warriors, who will now move on to the championship series to face the winner of the Waterloo Siskins versus Elmira Sugar Kings series. That series is currently tied 1-1.

The RedHawks were outscored by the Warriors 15-4.

Things got off to a rocky start for the RedHawks as they dropped Game 1, 6-2, before falling by a 5-1 score in Game 2.

After a tight 2-1 loss in Game 3, they couldn’t solve Warriors net minder Owen Willmore in Game 4.

Cambridge finished the regular season in third place with a 34-8-6-2 record, one point behind second place Stratford, and won their first round series against the Listowel Cyclones four games to one.

Forward Tanner Bibby led the team in scoring during the regular season with 36 goals and 41 assists for 77 points in 50 games played.

In the playoffs, it was forward Kyle Maloney who paced the team by finding the back of the net four times and adding 10 helpers in nine games.
