Nanaimo’s minor hockey teams are about to up the intensity.

Playoffs continue this weekend with games around Vancouver Island.

One of the most noteworthy games is a rep peewee matchup Sunday (Feb. 19). The Nanaimo InsuranceCentre Clippers peewee Tier 2 team will face the Nanaimo Kasjac Clippers peewee Tier 3 team in semifinal action, with the winner advancing to a best-of-three Island final.

The Kasjac Clippers recently clinched their league title with an undefeated record.

The teams play at 1:45 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.

Other big playoff games will be contested out of town.

The Nanaimo Clippers midget T1 team starts the Island finals this Saturday (Feb. 18) with its best-of-three series against Cowichan getting underway with Game 1 in Duncan. Game 2 won’t be until Feb. 25 at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The midget Clippers reached the Island finals on the strength of a 4-3 victory over Campbell River on Sunday up Island.

The Nanaimo Clippers bantam T1 team is also starting its best-of-three Island final on the weekend, with Game 1 slated for Sunday (Feb. 19) at the Victoria Racquet Club. Game 2 will be Feb. 25 at the NIC. Nanaimo’s bantams made it to the finals after handling Comox 4-1 on Saturday on the road.
