BISMARCK, N.D. - The Bismarck Bobcats remain third in the central division despite winning only two of their last five games. It is a tough one to play in, especially when you are playing against teams like Minot and Brookings, who made it to the playoffs the last two seasons.
Head Coach of the Bobcats, Layne Sedevie, knows that this is a tough league to play in, and while it’s not surprising, it sure is expected.
"I think it's very similar, I think it's the best division in our league. And I think if you look at last year, I mean, we had a chance to make the playoffs the last week of the year, so it was tight all the way, and I expect it to be that way this year as well, " said Sedevie.
Some of the things Sedevie feels confident about this year is his line-up on the ice. He likes what he has been seeing from goaltender Ryan Ullan, and even some of the more experienced guys.
"You have to look at a lot of our veterans that, you know, Ty Enns, Jared Resseguie, Matej Murin, you know Luke Millen, Cooper Haar, those guys, and obviously some of our new guys, Grant Johnson, Alex Pollock. You know I think those guys have done really well for us early on this year."
The Bobcats play Friday, Dec. 8 against the Minot Minotauros in the Magic City, and then Saturday, Dec. 10 they will return home for game two of the series.
