AMHERST - It could be the last weekend of hockey for both the CIBC Wood Gundy Fundy Phantoms and the Oxford Tim Hortons Colts unless they can win a game this coming weekend in their best-of-five Central Division semi-final Nova Scotia Junior C Hockey League playoff matchups.
The Phantoms have a much tougher hill to climb than the Colts.
Both teams were on the road last weekend and the Phantoms lost to the Eastern Shore Junior Mariners by scores of 14-0 and 4-0, while the Colts lost to the Avon River Rats 3-0 and 3-2 in overtime.
Game three goes Friday at 8 p.m. in Oxford and game four begins Saturday at 7 p.m. in Oxford. If the Colts tie the series up 2-2, game five will be played Sunday at 1:30 p.m. in Brooklyn.
The Phantoms play the Eastern Shore Mariners Friday at 9 p.m. at Amherst Stadium.(For the full story, see the Feb. 19 issue of The Citizen)
