After downing Aberdeen in a shootout last Thursday, the Bobcats had a little bus trouble on the way back from Aberdeen. But they made it back for their appearance in the “den” against the Minnesota Wilderness, where they lost in overtime on Friday night 5-4 and lost again in a shootout on Saturday evening 2-1. This leaves the Bobcats with a one point lead over the Wilderness for the fourth and final playoff spot in the NAHL Central Division, but still only four points behind the second place Minot Minotauros with only 15 games left in the 2018-19 regular season.

The Bobcats now head back on the road this weekend to face the last place Brookings Blizzard in what amounts to must win games against the South Dakota team, who only have 21 points to their credit this season, but are 4-6-0 in their last ten games.

The Sheriff’s Patrol had a chance to sit down with one of the Bobcats sharpshooters, Adam Stacho, who has committed to American International Univeristy in Springfield Mass. He thought the team could have done better by earning six points, but was happy with the four points the Bobcats came away with. He thought the team would be fired up to play the Blizzard this weekend with everything that was at stake.

We would like to wish the Bobcats the best of luck in their attempt to sweep their road series in Brookings this coming weekend.
