ALBERTON -- The Glace Bay Miners continued to widen their lead on the second place Alberton Pee Wee A Regals Thursday as the final hours of online voting for the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup ticked down.

Except for a few brief intervals when the Regals were in the lead, Glace Bay has led the nation in online votes for much of the three-week online vote-getting period.

The Miners, who held a 5,221-vote lead on the Regals at 8:30 a.m. were in front by 6,675 votes (103,858 to 97,183) by 5:30 p.m. The Kanata Blazes were third among the 13 regional finalists with 10,212 votes. The voting window closes at 1 a.m. Friday.

Chevrolet will scrutinize the results once voting closes to insure participants complied with contest rules while voting for the team they want to win the Good Deeds Cup.
