After picking up a point Sunday (Jan. 27) afternoon, the CeeBee Stars took a slim lead in the race for the playoffs in the five-team Newfoundland Senior Hockey League.
Although the team was unable to pick up a victory at the Hodder Memorial Recreation Complex in Deer Lake, Sunday's contest went to a shootout, giving the CeeBees a much-needed point.
The point gave the CeeBees 11 for the season and the same amount as the Flyers.
The Royals beat the CeeBees 5-4. Saturday's (Jan, 26) result was a 3-2 victory for the Royals.
The CeeBees' record fell to five wins, 13 losses and one overtime loss.
While both teams have the same amount of points, the Harbour Grace team has one more win (5) than the Flyers (4), giving them the tiebreak.
The CeeBees still have one more game before the Flyers take the ice again, a tilt with the Clarenville Caribous scheduled for Feb. 1 at the S.W. Moores Memorial Stadium in Harbour Grace. It is a make up game for one missed in mid-December.
A win there would help the club in its quest to clinch the fourth spot in the playoffs.
