VIJHL ADOPTS NEW PLAY-OFF FORMAT
- Submitted by

The VIJHL regular season is heading down the stretch and the final push is getting even more frantic this season with the new play-off format adopted by the league governors earlier in the season. Gone is the Wildcard game along with the divisional playdowns. The new ‘1 versus 8’ format gets underway starting the week of February 19.

The top 8 teams in the league will be seeded according to their final total points in the overall standings with the Andy Hebenton Award winner (1st place team) facing the 8th place team (2 vs 7, 3 vs 6, 4 v 5) in the first round of the playoffs; the VIJHL Quarterfinals.

This is a departure from previous years in which the 8th and 9th place teams faced each other in a single game knockout (Wildcard) game to determine which team would be seeded 4th in the North and gain entry into the playoffs. Each division then proceeded to a 1 v 4, 2 v 3, play-off format with the eventual divisional champions meeting in the VIJHL Championship series.  

All play-offs series in the VIJHL are best-of-7 affairs. The first VIJHL team to get 12 post-season wins will take home the Brent Patterson Memorial trophy and stamp their ticket to the Cyclone Taylor Cup in Richmond.

FEATURE PLAYER

MATTHEW SPARROW
Peninsula Panthers

Quite the return to the VIJHL for the Player of the Week, the Panther’s Matthew Sparrow. In 3 ‘Week 19’ games he earned 7 points, (3 vs Westshore, 4 vs Victoria). In the game he was kept scoreless, he was named a Game Star. Peninsula Head Coach, Brad Tippett says, “Matt arrived on January 3rd. I expected he might want a couple of practices under his belt before he jumped into the lineup but he was gung-ho to play. He has made an immediate impact on the scoresheet and in a leadership role.”
