On the Reno Ice Adult League website it says Reno Pond Hockey has a record of 2-3-0. That is not true. Because of that it put us in 5th place. We have a record of 3-3-0 right now. We have 6 points. We should be in third place and one point out from second place. It took a week after an email for the correct score to be put in for the Grrrowlers game. I do not know what is going on. All I know is that we should be in third place.
Reno Pond Hockey is in a playoff position (if the standings are corrected). Right now Reno Pond Hockey is still 5 points (2 wins and a shootout) from securing a playoff spot. Right now they are only one game away from being eliminated from the playoffs. One more loss and they might not be in a playoff spot anymore. That is how close the playoff race is right now. There is no need for concern yet. There is still plenty of hockey left in the season.
