Strathroy and LaSalle have both made the playoffs there is only about 50 games in the GOJHL season and they are 6th and 7th so it might not be a long playoff run but looks like Chatham might miss the playoffs.

The Above are all the Spitfire prospect playing in Junior B
2 strong performances against plymouth and london while wearing the special jerseys,, any chance we continue wearing them for the rest of the year??
I believe sence they have worn these jerseys they have only lost 2 times Last night against Plymouth 4-3 and also against Kitchener last Season 4-3 although last year was the first year they were aloud to wear these jerseys for more then the Mickey Game. Record with the Mickey Jerseys 4-2
I'm really liking how Braithwaite plays the game. He doesn't let the opposition have any easy ice and when he gets the puck its off the glass and out. The whole team looked fantastic weathering the storm in the 3rd period, especially on the pk. I think it makes a huge difference finally having all the defencemen back and now familiar with the systems. Rychel with his 36th of the year, the lazy 3rd line grinder type is sure silencing his critics.
I`m not so impressed by that London team. They have lots of skill, no doubt about it, but they don`t do a very good job of going to the net hard with the puck. It doesn`t make sense because they have guys who could do it like Watson and Knight, but they prefer to play a puck control finesse game on the perimeter to find the perfect shot. They need to fix that if they want to do anything in the playoffs, I wonder how much they miss Dale behind the bench. Having Dylan Hunter drawing up plays during time outs shouldn`t happen on a supposed cup contender. That team is ripe for an upset.
Good road game by the Spits. Played well positionally and the Knights wouldnt pay the price last night.
Spits won most battles needed to win in this league. They are learnign what it takes to compete in this league but will still have inconsistencies due to youth. Looking good thou for the future. Add a couple high end talents and they are on pace for 2014.
The scrap looked pretty even. Flem caught him early but Bowen looked to catch him late
Good luck tonight, a special one for Spit fans and one many OHL fans honour as well.
