Below is the playoff schedule. Casco and Kewaunee finished with the same record and split their season series so the next tiebreaker was season runs allowed and Kewaunee allowed fewer. Home team please report score as soon as possible. Full stats do not need to be sent in but if you could please include any top performers that would be helpful.
Reminder that only players who played in at least 3 league games are playoff eligible. I still have to enter stats from last night's games and July 20 Casco at Algoma but I should have those in today. If you are unsure of any player eligibility you can check the website or ask me and I'll look into it. If I have time today I will send out a list of players who are eligible for the teams that are playing tomorrow.
Wednesday, July 28
#7 Branch at #4 Kewaunee
#6 Algoma at #5 Casco
Friday, July 30
