The Port Aux Basques Mariners have forfeited their playoff game scheduled to be held on Saturday, February 22. The announcement comes just hours before the scheduled start time.

According to a post on the Deer Lake Red Wings Facebook page, the Mariners were unable to ice a team leading to the cancellation.

The Mariners have struggled all season to ice a competitive team and this latest development comes on the heels of a major development that saw sources within the Royals organization indicating they may drop out of the league. However the Royals have stepped up to complete the playoffs and found themselves being dumped 8-1 by the Deer Lake Red Wings last night.

This latest setback may be the final nail in the coffin for the West Coast Senior Hockey league, given the distrust that is apparent behind the scenes.

Playoff action is slated to resume on February 28 with the Corner Brook Royals scheduled to play the Mariners at Bruce II arena in Port Aux Basques.
