Bruins Get Important Point with Clarington!

  • imagePhoto Jaiden Irven and Joel Ovens.  Bruins celebrate tying goal. An important point from a 2-2 tie with the Eagles gives the Bruins a second place lead and they can secure that position in North Kawartha Saturday night. Colby Gardner got the tying goal after Clarington had opened up a 2-0 lead. Jordan Nesbitt got the Bruins on the board in the second to cut the Eagles lead in half at 2-1 setting up Gardners tying goal in the third. The Bruins outshot Clarington 41 to 36 but could not get the winning goal in OT. Branden Francey came up with two huge saves in the OT Session as 265 fans saw this exciting game tonight at the Bear Den. Good luck in North Kawartha who can’t be taken lightly as they will try to play spoilers in the race for second place.

Standings Tie Breaker Rules

OHABruins-Logo pointstreakWith 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!
