O’LEARY – The Western Maroons are scheduled to host the Pownal Red Devils in their last home game of the regular season on Friday.
Puck drop at the O'Leary Community Sports Centre is 8 p.m.
“It’s been a great season thus far and we are looking forward to the playoffs,” said coach Jeff Ellsworth. “The playoffs are a new season. It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.”
The P.E.I. Irving Oil Bantam AAA Hockey League has been a very competitive this season, the coach said, noting more than 90 per cent of the games have been close and entertaining to watch.
“Having a seven-team league on P.E.I. is great,” Ellsworth said. “Going to the rink and playing different teams every week keeps the league interesting.”
The league awards dinner will happen in Summerside on Sunday, with the playoffs starting on Monday.
