Today in Kingston junior hockey playoff history

Today's installment in a daily feature that looks back at this date in Kingston junior hockey playoff history.
Monday, April 6, 1998
Rico Fata scores three goals to lead the London Knights to a 5-2 victory over the Kingston Frontenacs before a sellout crowd of 5,075 at the Ice House. The win gives London, coached by former Kingston coach Gary Agnew, a 4-1 win in the best-of-seven quarter-final series.
The Frontenacs lead the game on two different occasions but London scores four unanswered goals over the last half of the game for the series-clinching win.
Rob Mailloux and Matt Elich scored the Kingston goals. Elich's goal gave Kingston a 2-1 lead midway through the second period but the Knights immediately scored twice to take a 3-2 lead. The tying goal, by Krys Barch, who put the puck past Kingston goaltender Curtis Cruickshank with a backhanded mid-air swat, was particularly crushing. Fata scored the go-ahead - and ultimately winning - goal just 79 seconds later.
