Ventura County, not Kitsap, to host conference playoffs

July 14th, 2012 by jeff graham

The Kitsap Pumas’ bid to host this year’s Western Conference playoffs has been turned down.

Just found out that the league approved Ventura County’s bid to host the tournament at Ventura College next weekend. That’s where the Pumas are headed if they beat Portland on Sunday in the Northwest Division playoff round.

Kitsap owner Robin Waite, whose team hosted the conference playoffs in 2010 and the league semifinals/finals last season, also cleared up some confusion regarding the postseason. It turns out the Northwest Division is the only PDL division using a 1 vs. 4 and 2 vs. 3 format, which was voted on by owners and approved by the league in the offseason.

In most other divisions, the top two teams in the regular season moved onto the conference playoffs. Waite did believe there was one or two other divisions using some sort of play-in format.
