It was with extreme difficulty that Commissioner Reg Holinshead announced to the rest of the OJCLL this evening that the Six Nations Warriors would not be putting a team on the floor for 2019. Several issues were of concern to the league executive and conditions simply couldn't be rectified in time to honour the schedule.
"We have had discussions over the last couple of days and some people have put in a lot of effort to rectify the situation but no set...tlement could be reached, unfortunately, so this is where we landed." Stated Hollinshead in an email to the league.
The teams in the West will make up the games in a modified schedule that will allow teams to complete 16 games. The playoff format will remain the same with one team not advancing to the post season while the other 6 will battle it out for the right to represent the West in the Meredith Cup.
"It is very unfortunate that this had to happen but there really was no other choice at this point."
The OJCLL opens with an exhibition tournament in Wilmot on April 20th with the first league games going on April 26th.
