It's a rematch on a Minto stage.
But unlike the Canadian bicentennial recreations of the Battle of 1812, the Minto Cup championship final series will feature actual survivors of the original encounter.
The Coquitlam Adanacs shocked the host Whitby Warriors on Wednesday with a convincing 15-11 triumph, advancing into the best-of-three final with the Orangeville Northmen.
It was Orangeville that Coquitlam dispatched 2-0 in 2010 to claim the club's first national junior title.
"This is what we came here for, this is what the players were focused on," noted Adanacs coach Neil Dinsdale. "We succeeded in our first goal." Coquitlam looked capable of beating anyone during the second period on Wednesday, when they outscored Whitby 9-4.
A day after getting hammered 17-8 by the Warriors in the final round-robin test of the tournament, the Adanacs delivered a shocker to the home crowd, advancing the final with a 15-11 triumph on Wednesday.
"When I'm behind the bench I don't notice any noise, the crowd or who's cheering who," said Adanac coach Neil Dinsdale. "They had a good crowd and they were supporting the home team, but I don't think they were happy."
After Whitby cashed in the last three goals of the first period to grab a 4-2 lead, the visitors regrouped and emerged from the dressing room with a lot of fire.
The Adanacs counted nine of the next 10 goals to stake out a forceful 11-5 advantage.
"That meant a lot," the coach noted. "It was a big part of the game and the kind of effort we wanted. We played well all game, but that period really set the tone."
Leading the way offensively for the Adanacs was Wesley Berg with four goals, while Reid Reinholdt tallied twice and set up five others. Vincent Ricci contributed a hat trick, while putting in two-goal efforts were Robert Church and Matthew Dinsdale.
Now they turn their focus to the Northmen, who prevailed 9-5 in the tourney's opening test. On the surface - and to the media - the coach said nothing will change strategy-wise.
"We just want to be emotionally engaged in the game, to continue doing the things we've been doing."
The best-of-three final begins tonight (Friday) in Whitby, with Game 2 on Saturday. A third game, if necessary, will go Sunday.
