Most saw it as a slam dunk for the Baycats but the dreamer in every sports fan thought – that maybe – just maybe the Kitchener Panthers would take at least one of the games in the IBL best of seven play of series.
Dreamers do that.

It was four straight for the Baycats to take the 2017 final – which made it the fourth finals win in a row for the team.

The Baycats dominated in the regular season and were unbeatable in the playoffs.

The last time an IBL team did that well was in the 2008-2013 stretch when the Brantford Red Sox won six straight from 2008-13.

The Baycats opened the season with 26 straight wins and finished 33-3 to earn a first-round bye.

The 4-3 win for the Baycats in game one created some hope but it was downhill after that.The four playoff games looked like this:

The Burlington Herd were taken out of playoff contention in the quarter finals when they were beaten by the London Majors in a best out of seven that went for five games.  Burlington took just one of the five games.
