After the weekend split, the Saints have ended their regular season with a record of 10-8 and are currently in a three way tie for fourth place in the tight OCAA West Division. The top 6 teams qualify for the playoffs, however, there is one game remaining in the division on Tuesday night that could see the Sheridan Bruins make it a 4 way tie for 4th place.
Based on tiebreakers, St Clair will either finish in 5th or 6th place and have to go on the road next weekend in a playoff cross-over match to quality for the OCAA Championships.
