The North Island Eagles midget rep team wrapped up the regular season quietly Sunday, absorbing a 5-0 Division 3 loss to the Nanaimo Clippers in Nanaimo.

The Eagles wrap up the regular season with a 5-4-3 record and a fourth-place showing, right in the middle of the seven-team division.

Following a week off to regroup, the midgets will open the Tier 3 playoffs with a pair of road games as the calendar turns to February.

They will play their two home games in the round-robin playoffs Feb. 8-9 in Port Alice and Port Hardy, respectively.
