Your Mike Jackson GM Blues continue their push for a return to the Centennial Cup and repeat as Buckland Cup winners. Holding down the #2 spot in The CJHL Top 20 Rankings fueled by Gatorade out of 122 teams from across Canada.
Heading down the stretch into OJHL 2024 playoffs. Your Blues have long clinched their playoff spot but are now seeking to wrap up the Western Conference for a second straight year. The Blues can wrap up the West in one of two ways. The first is a Milton regulation loss prior to visiting to Milton on Friday. Which would give the Menace a max of 86 points on the season. With the Blues already sitting at 87 points for the season following their 2 wins this weekend. That scenario would Clinch the Western Conference Top seed through the playoffs heading into play Friday night. The second scenario is the Blues head to Milton on Friday needing 2 points in regulation to sew up the Western Conference #1 with a win.
But that is not all that the Blues are also seeking…
The Blues hold a 9 point lead over Trenton for top spot in the OJHL overall. The Golden Hawks hold one game in hand on the Blues. They would however need everything to go right in order to make up the 7 point difference between the two teams. The Blues did their part defeating Trenton at the OJHL College showcase in Buffalo to hold the Tie Breaker head to head in the only matchup this year between the two teams. The Blues just need to continue their work and dedication. The Golden Hawks can only achieve a max of 94 points on the season. Meaning The Blues would clinch the OJHL once amassing 94 points. That could happen in as little as 4 games for the Blues.
