Rocks, Lucknow to start playoffs Friday night

ELORA – The Elora Rocks and Lucknow Lancers are to begin their Western Ontario Athletic Association A quarter-final playoff series Friday night at the Elora and District Community Centre.

It’s scheduled to be a three-in-three if the best-of-three series requires all three games to decide a winner.

Game 1 is set for 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Game 2 is slated to go at the Lucknow Sports Complex Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

If a third game is needed, it’s to be played Sunday at 3:30 p.m. at Elora.

The Rocks finished the regular season 11th in the 14-team league at 9-12-0-1 while Lucknow was 14th at 2-20-0-0.

If the Rocks win the series, they’ll play the Shelburne Muskies in the A semifinals. If Lucknow wins the series, the Lancers will play the Tillsonburg Thunder in the A semifinals.

Tillsonburg and Shelburne finished tied for ninth at the end of the regular season with identical 11-11-0-0 records. Tillsonburg was given the position ahead of Shelburne thanks to a 6-3 win over the Thunder last weekend in the only regular-season meeting between the teams.

Elora defeated Lucknow 4-1 Nov. 23 at Elora in their only meeting of the regular season.
