OPJHL Playoffs: Update

Oakville advanced to the semis with a 2-1 win over Georgetown last Friday. The Blades won the series, 4-1. Braden Birch went scoreless in the victory.

The Blades will open their series against Aurora on Saturday.

Aurora moved on by defeating Stouffville in five games. The Tigers finished off the Spirit last Friday with a 3-2 win. Jarred Seymour did not play in the finale.

In perhaps the biggest surprise of the playoffs, St. Michael's dropped their last three games to Markham to lose their series in six games. The Buzzers had been the OPJHL's top-ranked team in the CJAHL's national poll, coming in most recently at 7. Erik Axell sored a goal for St. Mike's in Sunday's penultimate game, while going scoreless in games four and six. Nick D'Agostino went scoreless in the final three games of the series.
