Playoff fever returns to the GLMC as the OCN Blizzard prepare to host the Winkler Flyers in the first round of the 2018 Turnbull Cup playoffs.
The Blizzard had the upper hand in 4 of the 6 meetings against the Flyers this season, and spent the last month of the regular season in a battle against the Flyers for 4th place overall in the MJHL standings.
Leading the Blizzard in to the storm is Tony Apetagon who was the Blizzard’s top scorer this season, notching 19 goals, and Anthony Keeper, who led the Blizzard in assists with 38.
This will be a hard fought series against the Flyers, as they come with Matt Christian (32G, 49A) who was 3rd overall for points in the MJHL this year.
It’s shaping up to be an action packed first round! The series schedule is as follows:
Game 1 – Winkler Flyers @ OCN Blizzard – Friday, March 9th – 7:00PM
