PHILIPSBURG – From the beginning of the season, this is what everyone had been waiting for: the playoffs!
It’s either “you win or you go home” and everyone feels like they have something to prove. The Ladies Basketball Championship season consisted of 4 teams, but only the top 3 teams have moved on to the playoffs. Each team and its players feel they have what it takes to win the championship.
At the end of the season, Thunderz is #1, MGM Lightning #2, Bush T Remedy #3 and Learning Unlimited is #4. Thunderz will receive a bye into the final round. The playoffs started Friday, March 4, at 7:00pm at Melford Hazel Sports Complex. Lightning will take on Bush T Remedy in game 1 of the first round in the best of 3 series. Game 2 will be Sunday, March 6 at 5:00pm.
In the U16 division, #1 seed Thunderz will take on #2 seed Learning Unlimited for the Championship game at 3:00pm. This is a winner takes all game to decide the U16 champions. If a game 3 is needed, then it will take place on Friday, March 11, at 7:00pm, if not game 1 of the finals will take place.
All teams are looking forward to seeing everyone come out with friends and family and to cheer their favorite team on to victory.
