The provincial junior women's hockey playoffs continue this weekend in Kingston.

The provincial junior women’s playoff series between the Kingston Ice Wolves and London Devilettes will continue this weekend at the Invista Centre.

The best-of-five affair is tied at one game apiece.

The Ice Wolves, coached by Troy Sweet, Rob Bunton and Shelby Perry, did what they had to do last weekend at the London Sports Park. They won the opening game 5-2 before dropping the second match 2-0.

“We’re more than happy with the split,” said Ice Wolves captain Megan Breen.

“We’re ready to finish the job,” Breen said.

“We’re practising and working hard. We’re sticking to our team structure and looking forward to the weekend. We know our home fans will be going crazy.

“They’re very supportive and very loud. We feed off their energy, that’s for sure. If we do what we’re capable of doing, we should be able to prevail and advance to the league quarterfinals.”
