The Tottenham Steam have been eliminated from the Greater Metro Hockey League after taking an 8-0 loss to Oshawa on Friday.
The Steam ended the regular season with a 11-31 record placing them in the number 19 spot in the 22 team league.
Eight teams had to player a qualifier playoff round to see who would get a playoff berth.
The Orangeville Ice Crushers folded several weeks ago leaving one spot open.
Tottenham hosted the Northumberland Stars in the arena on Feb. 16 for their first qualifying game.
After playing to a tie in both the first and second periods the Steam got the edge in the final frame on goals from Andrew Rennie and Viacheslav Chegrintcev to win the game 5-3.
The win meant the Steam would continue but the next game was scheduled for the following morning at 11 a.m. against the Oshawa River Kings.
The Steam fell flat giving up five unanswered goals in the first period that pretty much eliminated their chances of getting back into the game.
Two more Oshawa goals followed in the second period.
The RiverKings ended the game with a single in the final period to take the game 8-0 and giving the Steam the opportunity to get ready for the golf course.
The Niagara Whalers ended the regular season in first place with a 38-4 record followed by the New Tecumseth Civics who finished with a 37-5 record and 74 points.
The Russell Cup playoffs are getting underway this week with the preliminary round and quarter-finals set up as a best of five series.
The semi-final and final rounds are both best of seven series.
