The Renegades played our last game of the 2017-2018 Regular Season last night. The game was at 10:00PM at KofC Arena against the Pipeliners. We won the game 12-7 in what felt like a shooting gallery at times. The team finished the regular season with a record of 15-11-0-2. That's 15 wins, 11 losses, no ties and two overtime losses. During the course of the season the league made various divisional moves, shifting teams up and down within the 16 divisions. Our team remained in division nine for the entire season. But, in the final standings, only games that were played against teams that remain in our division, count towards the final winning percentage. And it is winning percentage that determines the final ranking for playoffs, at the end of the regular season. Our record against teams in our division was 12-8-0-1, and good for second place.
The playoff round starts on March 18th and we will begin a best of three series against the seventh place Trojans. We played the Trojans three times during the regular season, and have a winning record against them. A 6-4 win in September, followed by a 6-3 loss in October and finally a 6-2 victory in December. Should be fun... !! Can't wait for these playoffs to get started. Hopefully we can string together a long run and make it to the finals. Regardless of what happens, summer hockey season gets underway in early May, so there won't be much time to rest.
