The Ladner Pioneers finished the regular season on a sour note, dropping a 10-8 decision to the Timbermen Sunday July 16th in Nanaimo despite outshooting the hosts 58-39.  The Pioneers trailed 3-1 after one period and fell behind 6-1 five minutes into the second period, prompting coach Russ Frehlick to make a goaltending change, installing Kevin Hill in place of starter Nathan Wilson.  The move worked, as the Pioneers rallied with four straight goals, including a natural hat trick from Eric Ransom, to close the gap to one heading into the second intermission.  After the T-men opened the final frame with three straight goals, Ladner fought back with two of their own - a pair by Colton Dow - came up short as the teams traded goals in the last 4 1/2 minutes.  Dow and Ransom each had three goals and one assist to lead Ladner scoring, while Wilson and Hill combined to stop 29 of 39 shots.

The Pioneers earned a bye in the first round of the playoffs and will now square off with the Nanaimo Timbermen in the first of two best-of-5 semi-final series.  Game 1 is set for Thursday July 27th at Ladner Leisure Centre - face-off at 7:00pm.  Game 2 goes Friday July 28th in Nanaimo.
