National Ice Hockey League (NIHL) Division 2 South have confirmed their play off details after the four qualifying places were confirmed in the standings.
The top two sides from each of D2 South East and D2 South West will play cross over semi finals over the weekend of 15/16 April, with the winners meeting again the following weekend.
From the South East division, champions Peterborough Islanders are joined by Chelmsford Warriors. Cardiff Fire, winners of the South West, qualify alongside runners up Bristol Pitbulls.
The semi final draw pits Cardiff against Chelmsford and Peterborough will take on Bristol.
Due to issues with ice availability, the Cardiff-Chelmsford tie will be a single-leg game in Cardiff on Sunday 16th April. Peterborough and Bristol will play home and home as normal, with Bristol at home (in Oxford) on Saturday 15th. The second leg in Peterborough is on the Sunday.
