The Huron-Perth Laker Major Bantam team won their semi-final Alliance League playoff round over a gritty Windsor Jr. Spitfire team, winning 3 games, losing 1, & tying 1.  The Lakers now move on to the Alliance League Championship round versus the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs, matching the two top teams in the league.

The Lakers opened their semi-final playoff round on February 17 in Brussels and shutdown the Spitfires by a score of 2-0.  The following day, the Lakers extended their undefeated streak to 18 games, earning a 3-3 tie in a closely played game.  The following weekend, the Lakers played in Windsor on the Friday night and the long trip caught up to them as they suffered their first loss of the playoffs, losing by a score of 3-2.  The next day, the resilient Lakers bounced back with a dominant 4-2 win over the Windsor team.  The fifth game of the series was played down in Windsor on Monday night, February 26 and the hard-working Laker team ended the Windsor Spitfire season with an exciting 3-2 win.

The Lakers have an enviable record of 16-1-3 over it's last 20 games and will open the Alliance League Championship final on Saturday, Mar 3 at the London Ice Park against the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs.
