Report

Mariners B won the B League Final 10-8 in the third game of a Best of 3 Series against Belfast North Stars. North Stars had taken it to a third game, by winning the second game 10-9, after a convincing 14-4 Mariners B win in the first game.

Both Semi-Finals had also gone to three games, with Belfast North Stars defeating Belfast Buccaneers, and Mariners B beating Dublin City Hurricanes B.

The North Stars and Mariners B were the best teams all season, convincing winners of their respective divisions with 15 wins each. The race for second place in each Division, and therefore the other playoff places was close, with Dublin City Hurricanes B and Belfast Buccaneers just edging Ashbourne Giants U21 and Ashbourne Stags respectively, with Dublin Spartans B and Cavan Comets bringing up the rear.
