With the first round of the PJHL playoffs out of the way, the remaining four teams will really get down to business as the semi-finals get underway this weekend.

Usually, not always, the quarter-finals are a given for at least three of the teams who are expected to survive.

This year the first place Stayner Siskins, who won 40 games over the course of the season, went up against the Orillia Terriers who managed to only win four of 42 games played. With those kind of records, it would have been easier to save the cost of ice time and shakes hands and call it a series before they stepped on the ice.

The Alliston Hornets had a bit of a tougher go, meeting up with the Schomberg Cougars in the first round. That series lasted four games.

Stayner and Alliston had to wait out two series to see who they would meet in the semi-final.

The Penetang Kings managed to knock out the Midland Flyers in six games in what was described as a real grudge match between the two close-by towns. As the lower seed in the standings the Kings will be up against the Siskins in the semi-final.

The Caledon Golden Hawks dispatched the Huntsville Otters in their quarter-final series but it took the full seven games to get it done.

The Hawks and the Hornets will now do battle in their semi-final and it should be a good competitive series.

The series will get underway on Friday night, February 23, in Alliston with a 7:30 p.m. start.

Game Two will take place in Caledon the following night, Saturday, February 24, with a 6:30 p.m. start time.
