Beaver had an opportunity to move up as high as third in the PIHL Class B standings and get into prime postseason position.
That was until Mondaywhen the Bobcats gave up five second-period goals in a 5-2 loss to Meadville.
Even with the loss Beaver (10-8-0) can still move up in the standings if it can win one of its final two games, either tonight against Harborcreek or in its season finale on Tuesdayagainst a Blackhawk (11-7-0) team that will be playing on back-to-back nights.
Before the loss to Meadville, Beaver was playing some of its best hockey of the season. The Bobcats had won five of their previous six with a loss to Harborcreek the only blemish and had scored 31 goals in that time.
Whether or not Beaver wins one of its final two games, it has already clinched a spot in the PIHL Division 2 playoffs. If the standings don’t change, the Bobcats would take on Meadville in the first round of the tournament.
