2 Otters Teams Battling it out in the Quarter Finals
Submitted By Kelly Farnsworth on Friday, February 23, 2018
Your Aquadome Novice Rep Otters and your Tawingo Bantam Rep Otters both hit the ice at home this weekend in an attempt to clinch their Quarter Final rounds and advance to the OMHA Semi Finals. Come on out and support your hometown hockey teams as they dig deep and rise to the challenge of playoff hockey.

The Novices host the Parry Sound Shamrocks in Game 3 tonight (Friday, February 23) at 6:40 on the Jack ice. The Otters are up 2 games to none and a win tonight would advance them to the Semis. Should Game 4 be needed, it is set for tomorrow (Saturday, February 24) at 1:40, again on the Jack. Come on out to cheer on the Novice Rep Team-Let's make some noise for your Otters!

The Bantams host the Collingwood Blackhawks in Game 5 tomorrow (Saturday, February 24) at 5:10 on the Don ice. The series is split at two games apiece and saw the Otters take Games 1 and 2, with the Blackhawks responding by taking Games 3 and 4. Game 5 will be a winner take all match up, which is sure to provide some exciting entertainment with these two hard working teams. Bring your support and your noise to cheer on the Bantam Rep Otters in their quest to advance to the Semis. As the series is a 3 out of 5 (or first to 6 points), should the game end in a tie it would see Game 6 go in Collingwood on Sunday, February 25 at 2:25.

GO OTTERS GO!!

Playdown Update:
-Our Atom AE Otters hosted the Shelburne Wolves on February 17 for game 3 of the quarter finals. The Wolves were up 2 games to none going into the game and had held the Otters to just two goals over the previous games. Our Otters played an impressive game, but unfortunately it ended with a 4-2 win for the Wolves. Next up for the Atom AE's is they will begin their MPS Playoffs most likely next weekend.
-Our PeeWee Rep Otters battled hard against the Collingwood Blackhawks, winning game 1 at home with a 4-2 score. Game 2 went to Collingwood with the same score, with game 3 also going to Collingwood. Game 4 saw the Otters hit the ice determined to take the win and even the series - Huntsville came out strong and played with lots of passion against the skilled Blackhawks, but unfortunately when the buzzer rang it was a 3-1 loss for the Otters, which was the end of the series.
-Our Major Midget Otters also squared off against the Collingwood Blackhawks and took game 1 of the series with a 3-2 win. The Blackhawks responded in game 2 with their own 3-2 win; game 3 was another tough battle which saw the Blackhawks take a 4-2 win. Our Otters hit the ice for game 4 full of determination and grit and when the buzzer rang at the end of the 3 periods, the score was tied at 1, forcing overtime. The OT was a back and forth battle between the teams, which saw the Blackhawks score with mere seconds remaining on the clock - it was an exciting game, with a heartbreaking finish.
