Owen Sound Jr.Attack Rep Playoff Fever!
The Owen Sound Jr. Attack are in playoff mode and leaving it all on the ice with their quest for a championship.
The Major Atom, Major Pee Wee, and Major Bantam squads are leading the charge as they all advanced to the OMHA Playdown Semi-Finals over the weekend.
Here is how the Owen Sound Jr. Attack Representative Playoffs look ...
Novice (Georgian Bay Playoffs)
With 2 wins in a row, they are in the mix with a huge weekend coming up. On the road Mar.1 vs Dundalk, and then they clash with the current top team Mar.2 at home vs. Penetang.
Minor Atom (Georgian Bay Playoffs)
Currently sitting at 1-2, but in the mix with a Tuesday tilt vs Collingwood, followed by home games Mar.3 and Mar.6.
Major Atom (Georgian Bay Playoffs AND OMHA Playdowns)
The Major Atom squad has accumulated over 50 wins this year, and are 4-0 in Georgian Bay Playoffs, but also still alive in OMHA play. After winning their first two matches vs Oakville in the quarter finals, they suffered a 3-2 home defeat Friday night to take the series back to Oakville on Saturday. This game would require OT, but it was Owen Sound ending it just 42 seconds in to advance to the OMHA Semi-Finals. Next weekend (Mar.2/3), they travel to Harrow/Kingsville to meet Erie Northshore (not too far from Detroit) for the first two matchups of the best of 5. The following weekend (Mar.9/10) we will host Erie for a pair of games on home ice.
Atom AE (Georgian Bay Playoffs)
Sitting a top the pool playoffs with a 4-1 record, the AE squad is at home Mar.2 for their 5th playoff game.
Minor PeeWee (Tri-County Playoffs)
After an impressive, hard fought run in the OMHA playdowns, the Minor PeeWee squad turned their attention to their league playoffs. Earning a big win versus Halton Hills on the weekend puts them at 2-1 and in the hunt for top spot in their pool. A critical weekend approaches with a home game Friday Mar.1, followed by two road matchups Mar.2 and Mar.3. Very much in the mix, and hoping to advance to the finals with three solid victories.
Major PeeWee (OMHA Playdowns)
The Major PeeWee team has also amassed over 50 victories this season, and it was enough to tie Dundas on Friday night to earn their 6th point and advance to the provincial semi-finals. Their frozen four opponent will be St.Thomas and the schedule has yet to be determined.
PeeWee AE (Georgian Bay Playoffs)
With a record of 3-1-1 in playoffs so far, the PeeWee AE squad is also in the hunt for a championship. It may hinge on a critical matchup versus another top team Mar.2 versus Penetang.
Minor Bantam (Tri-County Playoffs)
The Minor Bantams made a very impressive charge through OMHA playdowns losing some close battles but kept their heads high as they set their sights on League Playoffs. Through four games and sitting at 2-2 puts them in the mix with 4 points and only 2 back of the top team. They will likely need a 4 point weekend starting in Burlington on Saturday and back at home Sunday vs. Caledon.
Major Bantam (OMHA Playdowns)
The Major Bantams have also found over 50 notches in the win column this season and also disposed of Oakville over the weekend to advance to Semi-Final play vs St. Thomas. They will continue their quest toward provincial champions in St.Thomas next weekend for a pair of road games. The following weekend (Mar.9/10) will see them face off at home for two more (unless they can steal two on the road and end it Saturday night at home!?).
Bantam AE (Georgian Bay Playoffs)
The Bantam AE team started their playoff run with two victories and had a Sunday matchup vs Collingwood cancelled due to weather. They will have their work cut out for them next weekend playing two home games, Saturday vs the top team (Collingwood) and Sunday vs Innisfill who also has 4 points.
Minor and Major Midget teams were eliminated in their best of 5 playoff series versus Orangeville and New Hamburg respectively.
