The Prince Albert Icehawks’ bid for a Prairie Junior Hockey League playoff spot took a bit of hit on Wednesday when one of the teams they are trying to jump over in the standings squeaked out a narrow win.
The Delisle Chiefs moved four points ahead of Prince Albert with a 4-3 triumph at the Kinsmen Arena and with just 11 games left in the regular schedule the Icehawks are going to have to get on a roll to overcome the Chiefs, who moved into a tie with the Saskatoon Westleys for fifth place in the North Division standings.
Lucas Anseth led the Prince Albert attack with two goals while Brett Boyer had a goal and two assists. Darian Clarke also had a big game collecting three helpers.
Prince Albert will try and get back into the race when they travel to Saskatoon on Sunday to face the Westleys. The Icehawks play three of their next four games on the road meaning this stretch could determine if they have a shot at a playoff berth.
