Kiski Area pretty much needed to win out to have any hope of catching undefeated Franklin Regional atop the Class A East Division.
Now the Cavaliers might need to win out just to get a home game in the first round of the Penguins Cup playoffs.
In their last outing, they dropped a 5-3 decision to a surging Bishop McCort (9-5-0) squad that has now won its last five and moved into fourth place in the division. Kiski Area needs to regroup and must do it fast tonight against a Serra Catholic (6-6-1) team that is fighting Freeport for postseason positioning among the bottom two teams.
A win will help the Cavaliers to rebound as they will take on Indiana (10-2-0) on Monday at Center Ice in Delmont. The Little Indians rolled, 8-2, in their first meeting on Nov. 10.
