The Hamilton Bulldogs have improved to a record of two wins and one loss at the 2018 Mastercard Memorial Cup in Regina, Saskatchewan. On Tuesday, the Bulldogs defeated the Acadie-Bathurst Titan 3-2 in their final round robin game of the 2018 Canadian junior ice hockey club championship tournament.

Three Bulldogs recorded multi-point games. Robert Thomas of Aurora, Ontario and Benjamin Gleason each had one goal and one assist for two points and Brandon Saigeon of Grimsby, Ontario had two assists. The other Bulldogs goal scorer was Nicholas Caamano of Ancaster, Ontario.

The Bulldogs can clinch first place on Wednesday with a Swift Current Broncos win over the Regina Pats. With the win over the Titan, the Bulldogs guaranteed at least a spot in the semifinal and will not have to play in Thursday’s tiebreaker because they cannot be caught by the Broncos and Pats. The Broncos will play the Pats again on Thursday if they beat them Wednesday to close out the round robin.

The Titan can still clinch first place if the Pats defeat the Broncos. In that scenario, there will not be a tiebreaker at all and Regina will play Hamilton in the semifinal on Friday with the winner to play Acadie-Bathurst on Sunday in the final.
