After more than a week off, the Grandview Comets are gearing up for their semifinal best-of-five series against the Swan Valley Axemen.
Grandview easily swept Foxwarren in the first round of the playoffs, while things weren't quite as easy for Swan Valley as they lost one game against Moosomin before winning the series in four games.
"We need to stay disciplined against Swan," said TJ Warkentin, Captain for the Comets. "We have to play the right way, and the rest should work out."
The Comets and Axemen hooked up twice in the regular season, with the Comets winning one in overtime and the team lost the other, 8-2.
"We need to take care of our own end first," said Warkentin. "We know we can create offence, so it's about winning those battles in our own end, and then we can create offence off of good defensive play."
Game one of the series kicks off this Friday at the Minitonas Arena.
Here's the schedule for the Comets and Axemen:
#1 - Friday, March 2 at 8:30 p.m. - Minitonas
#2 - Saturday, March 3 at 7:30 p.m. - Grandview
#3 - Wednesday, March 7 at 8:30 p.m. - Minitonas
#4 - Friday, March 9 at 9:00 p.m. - Grandview
#5 - Saturday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m. - Minitonas
