Next week is the end of the regular season, so I just wanted to go over what that might look like for us.
We have our last regular season game next Wednesday (August 10th) at 6:00pm. As things stand, we are currently in 6th place with 14 points, but the 5th and 7th places teams have 15 and 13 points, respectively, so there are a few different scenarios that could affect where we land at the end of the regular season.
If we place in 6th position or higher, our playoff spot is guaranteed and our next match will be a quarter-final game on August 17th (time TBD). A win next week would guarantee this.
A tie or a loss next week could bump us down to 7th place, which would mean that our playoff spot is not guaranteed, and we will have to play on Friday of next week (August 12th) in order to secure our playoff spot. If we win the Friday game, we advance to the quarter-finals, and if we lose, then that will be our last game of the season. It is important to note that, starting Friday, all games are elimination games, so a win means we advance to play the following Wednesday, and a loss means we’re out.
I know this is a lot to take in, so the main points you need to know are:
- Last regular season game on Wednesday (6:00pm). A win will catapult us to the playoffs.
- Be prepared for a game on Friday (7:00pm) of next week.
As always, please indicate your attendance for next Wednesday as soon as possible!
Can’t wait to see you all on the pitch!
