Top teams struggle in Sunday night play

March 1, 2018   ·   0 Comments

It’s almost a case of “how the mighty have fallen” after two evenings of round robin play in the Sunday Night Hockey League.
The top three teams at the end of the regular season currently occupy three of the last four spots in the post-season stats, while Caledon Hills Brewing Co. Brewers, who finished the campaign in sixth place with a 4-12-2 record, have won both their matches and have a hold on first place.
One point is awarded for winning a period, two points for winning the game and if a period is tied, each team gets half a point.
The Brewers currently have 8.5 points, followed by the Pommies Cider Co. Wild, who ended up in fifth, with 7.5. St. Louis Bar and Grill Wings were in last place at the end of the season, but they are sharing third place with the Mr. Handyman Ice Hogs with six. The Ken’s Lawnmower Repair Blades were on top of things at the end of the regular season, followed by the Inside Out Family Chiropractic Predators. Those two clubs share fifth place in the round robins with four. The Glen Eagle Golf Club Griffins are in seventh with 2.5, followed by the Ainsley Fire Protection Fire, who had been in third place, but are now in eighth.
