The Barrhead Bombers did well on earning its first sweep of a three game set over the Cold Lake Hornets this past weekend. After picking up nine total points, Barrhead has now a 7-point clearance on the Hornets for third place in the Provincial Division.
Forward Carter Zawortny scored a hat trick, and had registered points in all three games against the Hornets.
The Bombers face three more games against as many opponents including two home games and a trip to the Murray Rec. Center. Tomorrow, the Bombers will host division leaders, Edson Aeros. On Saturday, the team will visit Hinton Timberwolves for the penultimate time this year. On Sunday, the first of March, Cold Lake Hornets come to town.
The Bombers have a decent chance at staying in third place—should the trajectory persist—since the Hornets must face Edson three more times, Hinton one more time, and a final round against your Bombers.
Should the playoffs begin today, the Bombers will face Hinton in a three game series at the Murray Rec. Center. Affording a regular season win over them in the final two games scheduled can be huge for the team, as it hasn't been able defeat them all season.
