Previous Story - Next Story
2020-03-08
Week 8 showed once again how much parity exists in the OFBHL as 6 out of the 8 games were either ties or one goal wins, our only undefeated team the Hustlers just barely kept their dream alive storming back from a late 2 goal deficit to earn a tie.

Please note that there are no games scheduled for Sunday, March 15th as we had taken the week off as many were travelling for March Break, I've received a few inquiries where we stand on the Centre being open and playing games moving forward with the COVID-19 outbreak, we will play everything by ear and make any decisions based on recommendations from Ottawa Public Health assuming the facility remains open. Stay healthy and stay safe and hopefully we'll see everybody back on the floor on the 22nd and onwards!
