The Lloydminster Bandit Pipeline Bobcats midget AAA hockey team couldn’t pick up a victory this past weekend, but they didn’t lose either.
On Saturday on the road, the Bobcats scored four first period goals against the Knights of Columbus Pats for a 4-1 lead after 20 minutes.
However, the Pats would chip away at the lead, scoring twice in the second period before scoring just 32 seconds into the third period to tie the game at 4-4.
Lloydminster couldn’t beat goaltender Braedan Stephen, who came in after the Bobcats scored four goals on five shots, and the game ended in a 4-4 tie.
On Sunday against the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers, Lloydminster trailed 3-2 after 40 minutes of play, but got the equalizer early in the third period off the stick of Chase Anderson.
Again the Bobcats would skate to a tie, as the game ended 3-3.
The two points did move the Bobcats out of the basement of the Alberta Midget Hockey League’s North Division, moving them one point ahead of the Rangers with a game in hand.
Lloydminster is now just one point out of a playoff spot, with both the Pats and Canadian Athletic Club at 12 points.
The Bobcats will swing to Calgary this weekend for a pair of games, taking on the Northstars on Saturday and the Flames on Sunday before finishing the 2016 schedule at home with a pair of games.
