The Port Alberni Ladies Basketball League finished their regular season with four teams fighting for top playoff seeding.

In the first game, a short handed Mace Electric had to forfeit to Lace It Up due to lack of players.

Players did show up later and an exhibition game was held instead.

The second game of the evening saw Dave Ralla’s Ballerz taking on the Canadian Tire Retreads.

Both teams started the season off slowly, but both now are currently on a winning streak.

The score bounced back and forth throughout the game, but the Retreads were able to hold onto their lead at the end and beat the Ballerz 39-35.

Jami Oliver and Toni Schutte led the Retreads with 13 points each.

At the end of the regular season there is a four way tie with all teams winning and losing three games a piece.

Rankings for the play-offs have therefore been decided on points scored this season.

The final standings are: First, Mace Electric (251 points), second, Dave Ralla (245 points), third,  Lace It Up (216 points), and fourth, Canadian Tire (208) points.

The league will be taking next week off for Victoria Day.

Play-offs begin May 30.
