CSSHL Elite 15 Division 

Things are extremely tight at the top of the CSSHL E15 division.

And a lot can still happen before the season wraps up March 2, as most teams have three or four games left to play, including some crucial head to heads.

BWC still leads, with 53 points and four games left. But they’ve seen their lead shrink from six points to three over their last three games. Since the New Year, BWC have two wins, a loss, and OTL and SOL.

In the meantime, Delta have posted a two regular time wins, two shootout wins, a shootout loss and regular time loss, for nine of possible 12 points, and are currently one point up on Northern Alberta Xtreme, who are tied with Rink, with 49 points.

St. Georges are in fifth spot, six points back of NAX and Rink, and five games left to play.

 

The finishing matchups:

So can BWC hang on to the top spot that they’ve occupied most of the season?

BWC suffered a 3-2 shoot-out to Delta today (2.10.19), after posting a 7-1 win over #12 Pursuit on Saturday, in their only games so far in February.

They’ll finish up with three away games – vs #9 Yale, then two vs #5 St. Georges, before wrapping up at home vs Delta on March 3.

Delta have just three games left – they’ll meet St. George’s and #9 Yale at home before wrapping up with the game at BWC.

NAX have four games left, all in Edmonton, including two vs #6 Prairie at River Cree, and two vs #8 OHA Edmonton, in a home and home, wrapping up at the Royal Glenora on March 3. NAX are 2-0 vs Prairie, and 2-1 vs OHA Edmonton through the season.

Rink were five points back of NAX and Delta at the beginning of February. Since the New Year, Rink has played ten games, including eight at home. They swept Prairie in three straight in their lone January series, then won both games in their roadie vs OHA Edmonto to start February. This weekend they hosted a Showcase and won three of four, losing 4-3 in OTL to St. Georges on Friday, February 8.

Rink will wrap at home with two games vs #7 Edge March 2-3. The teams are 1-1 in their earlier head to head, each scoring 5 goals.
