Lumby’s Jagger Williamson will play for a professional hockey championship.

The former Vernon Vipers’ captain scored once and was the game’s second star Sunday, April 24, as the Columbus River Dragons (Georgia) defeated the Danbury (Connecticut) Hat Tricks 5-1 to sweep the best-of-three Federal Prospects Hockey League semifinal and advance to the Commissioner’s Cup championship.

The River Dragons will face the Watertown (New York) Wolves in the best-of-three.

Game 1 will be Friday, April 29, in Columbus. Game 2 is slated for Watertown on Sunday, May 1, and Game 3, if necessary, would be played Monday, April 2, in Watertown.

Williamson had two assists Friday, April 22, as Columbus defeated Danbury 7-4 in the opening game of the semifinal. The Hat Tricks jumped out to a 2-0 lead before the River Dragons responded with five straight goals.

Danbury got back to within a goal at 5-4 in the final 20 minutes before Columbus put the game out of reach with a pair of empty-net markers.

Williamson has scored six goals in his last three games.
