It's playoff time in the Northwest High School Hockey league. The regular season wrapped up in exciting fashion with three teams in the hunt for the fourth and final spot in the playoffs in the last two games of the season. Coming out of the trifecta of La Loche, Buffalo Narrows and Turnor Lake were the La Loche Lakers who grabbed a win over Dillon in the final game of the regular season to grab the spot.
The Lakers' prize is a date with very tough first ranked Canoe Lake. The two versus three matchup goes between the Ile-a-la-Crosse Huskies and Patuanak Timberwolves.
The Semi-Finals take the form of a two-game combined score set.
The first pair of games goes tomorrow night with La Loche hosting Canoe Lake while Patuanak welcomes
The second leg game between Patuanak and Ile-a-la-Crosse goes next Tuesday in Buffalo Narrows (weather permitting) while the La Loche/Canoe Lake game has yet to be scheduled.
I'll give an update when the dates/locations are set in stone.
