The Acme Timbermen have the inside track on first place, but they still have some work to do.
The Acme Painting T-men swept back-to-back games against the Tri-City Bandits this past weekend, dropping that foe from second to third.
Nanaimo’s senior B squad has four games remaining in which to try to clinch first and keep sharp.
“We’re focused on [those games], but we’re using them as stepping stones toward the playoffs,” said Mike Maughan, the team’s coach.
He said it’s a good thing that Nanaimo faces tough teams the next couple games.
“We want to keep building,” Maughan said.
Cody Keating, alternate captain, said the team can continue to fine-tune over the remaining regular-season games.
“We’re going to take it day by day but playoffs are definitely in the back of your mind,” he said.
GAME ON … The Acme T-men visit the Valley Rebels on Sunday (June 29). There is just one regular-season home game remaining, July 6 at 5 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena against the Ladner Pioneers.
