With the final weekend of play upon us there is so many different positions in the final standings that Uxbridge ,Port Perry and Little Britain could finish for second, third and fourth spots. Everyone is gunning for second to get a first round bye along with first place Clarington.
Here is the tie Breaking formula courtesy of Liz Bassinger, Central Convener for Central Ontario …If two teams are tied other than the final playoff spot then the teams head to head record including tied games points determine that position, next it is goals for and against.
If there is a three way tie it is determined by most wins in the final standings.
Uxbridge would break the tie breaker with Port Perry with 10 points vs 4 points
Little Britain breaks the tie Breaker with Uxbridge with 10 points vs 4 points
Port Perry breaks the tie Breaker with Little Britain with 9 points vs 7 points
Finally a three way tie would see Uxbridge in fourth as they would have the least number of wins.
Check out our website Sunday Jan. 31st for a final standings and playoff match up. Our playoff schedule will be posted on our front page as soon as it is known.
Uxbridge can avoid all of this with two wins in the final two games of the season or a win and a point from a tie or OT loss starting tonight against the first place Clarington Eagles and Saturday when they travel to North Kawartha to take on the Knights. Pedal down Bruins!
(Photo: Robert Freckelton with the hard hat of the game award) Branden Francey makes several games stoppers in keeping the Chiefs off the board in a 0-0 draw. Francey flashed the glove off a Chiefs one timer during a second period power play and then Francey topped that with a diving midair block in overtime to preserve the tie. A well earned shutout by the Bruins goalie tonight. Currently Uxbridge is 2 points up on Port Perry who have a game in hand. Uxbridge closes out their regular season schedule on Fri.

Patrick Bolahood with the insurance marker before Siblock scored his second and third goals of the game on Canadian Tire Night at the Bear Den. Jake Jooston got the win in goal as he faced only 20 shots while the Bruins fired 41 at the other end.
