With eight divisions and 59 teams spread out across western Ontario, the Provincial Junior Hockey League is battling it out in small towns across the province in a quest to make it all the way to the Schmaltz Cup this season.

Of course, only two teams will make it to the final round of the provincial championships.

After a quarter way into the regular season, the standings are starting to shape up as each division records their wins and losses.

In the local loop, which includes the Carruthers Division, the Stayner Siskins have moved into the top spot with an 11-1 record so far for the season.

The first place spot has changed teams a few times this season with the top three teams only a point apart in the standings.

The Orillia Terriers have also had a strong season and are tied with the Siskins in the points column with 22 recorded so far and are in second place in the standings.

The Terriers have an 11-2 record.

In third place is the Schomberg Cougars, who started off in first place but have dropped down a couple of notches. They are just one point behind so they are still in a solid place in the standings and have recorded three losses for the season after 14 games.

The Alliston Hornets are in fourth place with an 8-5-1 record. The Hornets had a rough start to the season but are now on a winning streak and getting stronger as the season progresses.

In fifth place, the Penetang Kings just can’t seem to get going this year. After 13 games, they have recorded five wins and eight losses including one overtime loss.

The bottom three teams – the Caledon Golden Hawks, Huntsville Otters, and Midland Flyers, are all struggling this year.

The Hawks have managed three wins after 13 games. The Otters and Flyers have managed only two wins this season.

There’s still a lot of hockey to be played with a 42-game schedule, so there’s still a lot that can happen as the teams battle their way through the rest of the year.
