The Razorbacks had a strong season with 22 wins, 8 losses, and 2 ties. The playoff run was tough, however the team pulled together with a couple of late period comebacks which helped earn them a trip to the finals.
Season rivals, the Stittsville Titans Peewee C2 started the run with a 2-1 win in game 1. Game 2 was a 1-1 tie. The March break appeared to be a sign of relief for the Razorbacks, coming back from a tournament in Kingston with some momentum which helped boost them to a convincing 6-3 win in game 3.
Game 4 started off with end to end hockey. The Titans took a 1, then 2 and then a 3 goal lead. The Razorbacks found themselves in a deep hole. Going into the the mid-point of the 3rd period, the Razorbacks showed some life. They never gave up and with just over 8 minutes to go. The Razorbacks scored to make it 3-1. They scored again shortly after that and then with just 55 seconds left in the game, they scored a third goal to make it a 3-3 tie. Off to overtime, the Razorbacks wasted no time to pop one in for the win.
