Stars make playoffs, await foe

The Tacoma Stars have made the playoffs, even with just a .500 record of 4-4-2.

Who will they play?

Seattle or Wenatchee on the road, March 8th.

Right now the streaking Snohomish Skyhawks lead the pack. However, it is still possible for Wenatchee or Seattle to pass them.

However, with a match still to play either Seattle or Wenatchee will pass Snohomish for first place. So the Stars will not face the Skyhawks in the first round.

Seattle and Wenatchee have a match with each other to get to their total of 10 league matches. It comes this Saturday March 1st at Starfire. On February 24th Seattle and Wenatchee played to a thrilling 18-18 draw.

Snohomish has 19 points, Seattle has 18, Wenatchee has 17. If the Wolves and Fire tie in their March 1st match then Seattle wins the division and hosts the Stars on March 8th. If the Wolves win they'll host Tacoma. If Wenatchee wins they'll host the Stars and Seattle will travel to Snohomish.

Snohomish, Seattle, Wenatchee and Tacoma are all in the playoffs. It's now a matter of finishing out to determine seeding.
