All season the team I have been volunteering for has been battling for the last playoff spot. We haven’t been in the playoffs in 3 years.
There are 8 teams in the conference and 7 of them make the playoffs. So that means that we’ve been last every year for the past 3 years.
Tonight we played our second last game, tied with the rival team. We ended up winning 7-4 today against a team we would face in the playoffs if we were to make it. So then we’re up 2 points.
The team we are battling played their last game tonight. If they won then we have to get at least one point on Sunday to make it.
The other team was down by 1 goal 5 times, and they tied it up 5 times to force overtime. And…. They lost in overtime! That means they only got 1 point instead of 2 and they miss the playoffs!!
But I probably won’t be able to go to many games because some of them will be during the week. Sometimes it sucks working at night.
