Round 1 in the books
Submitted By Tim McNaughton on Wednesday, February 26, 2020
Tuesday evening we saw the official end to the 1st round of playoffs

The Ripley Wolves came to play in their game 7 Tuesday night beating Durham by a final score of 8-3, this was an incredible series by both teams, showing us the true parity the league has this season with a 1 vs 8 series going the distance.
Our 2 vs 7 series once again displayed the amazing parity we've seen this season with the 7 seed Minto knocking off the 2 seed Shelburne in 6 games, once again a great back and forth series with games that could have gone either way including game 6 that went to double OT! Kudos to Shelburne on a great season jumping from 10th to 2nd in the standings this season
Our 3 vs 6 series also saw an upset with the 6 seed Tillsonburg taking down the 3 seed Saugeen Shores in 6 games, again a couple overtime games, close scores, great series of hockey on display for the fans.
And in our 4 vs 5 series the reigning champ Radars took out the 5th place Centenaires in 6 games of the battle of hwy 8, this rivalry has taken on a life of it's own the past few years and this series was a hard fought battle that will be difficult to top!
Moving forward to the semi finals starting this weekend we will see 1st place Ripley take a run at the 7th place 81's from Minto and 4th place Clinton taking on 6th place Tillsonburg, both series should be great battles so keep an eye on the schedule for upcoming games!!

In the A side Tavistock took the first 2 games of their series against Lucknow last weekend, but both games needed OT so this one is likely far from over. Game 3 goes in Tavistock on Saturday night followed by game 4 back in Lucknow Sunday evening.
In the other series Milverton and Elora split the weekend and come out 1-1 with both teams winning on the road. This series will continue this weekend with game 3 in Elora Friday night followed by game 4 in Milverton Saturday night!
