Third place Oshawa plays host to second place Bryst as both teams try to catch current number one seed Woodbridge in what is a tight race atop the division standings.
The Oshawa side comes into today's match riding a 3-game winning streak rebounding well from slow start that saw them draw and lose their first two games of the year.

With 3 players in the top 6 in league scoring, Oshawa will look to their offensive leaders Brandon T, Caleb M, and Isaiah S. (all with 3 goals) to continue their strong play and help lead the team to victory.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Kicks team will need to be weary of Bryst forward Kamar M. who currently sits at 7th in league scoring with 3 goals on the year.
