2012 NHIAA Girls’ D1 Ice Hockey Playoffs

The 2012 playoff bracket (unofficial until next week) is now complete for the 5th post-season of NHIAA-sanctioned Girls’ Ice Hockey.  As for the past three years, the same six teams have earned tournament spots… only their order has changed.  Perhaps unlike the past three years however, any one of the top four teams might be capable of winning it all, as none is undefeated against the other three.

As the top two seeds, Hanover (2) and Leb (1) receive byes into the semifinal round on Tuesday, March 6th, at Everett Arena.

The two quarterfinals are scheduled for Friday, March 2nd; to be played at the home ice of the higher seed:

Oyster River (3) will host neighboring rival STD (6) at Jackson’s Landing (6:00 PM)

Concord (4) gets another round with Bishop Guertin (5), (to whom they lost once this season), at Concord’s Everett Arena (7:50 PM).

Now, there’s a week and a half for the Marauders to re-focus on fitness, first touch and finish, until their next game… back at Everett Arena on the 6th of March.    Time to “pirate-up.”
