PLATTSBURGH, NY – After a loss by the Old Orchard Beach Surge today against the New Hampshire Wild, The Puerto Rico Islanders have clinched a spot in the 2018 Empire League  Playoffs.

The Islanders are currently in Second place looking to finish with the number one or two seed in the overall standings. They will need to win out in the final series against the New Hampshire Wild and get some help from the Plattsburgh RedBirds to take the number one overall seed. The Islanders are  just one game back from the Bucks so a win for the Islanders and loss for the Bucks could come down to a head to head decision.

The number 2 seed will take on the number 3 seed in a one game Wild Card Playoff to see who will advance to the 2018 EPBL Championship series and the number 1 seed will face off against the number 4 seed.

This will be the Islanders first playoff appearance in team history as they missed it by just one game last season.

All Wild Card games will be played on August 10th at Chip Cummings Field.
