Wildcats Making a Run at Division Title

The Wichita Falls Wildcats have a chance to make history this weekend when they go for their first-ever division championship as they close the regular season.

They'll play the Lone Star Brahmas Friday and Saturday nights in North Richland Hills, and the top of the NAHL's South Division is as tight as it could be.

The Brahmas lead the division with 84 points through 58 of 60 games played, while the Wildcats sit just a point back with 83.

Just a point behind Wichita Falls is the Topeka RoadRunners, who have 82 points and three games left on the season, a three-game series at Wenatchee.

The top two teams in the division will earn first-round byes, while teams 3-6 will play best-of-three "play-in" series this coming week.

If the Wildcats sweep their series at Lone Star, in regulation or overtime, they will clinch at least the bye, and as long as Topeka doesn't earn a three-game sweep, it will be enough for the 'Cats to hang a banner because they own every tiebreaker over the 'Runners.

The Wildcats can still finish ahead of Lone Star even with a three-point weekend, as long as their win is in regulation, as they also hold the tiebreaker over the Brahmas.

Click on the main video player above to hear from the Wildcats' three most-tenured players, forwards Colin Staub and Nick Farmer and defenseman Jake Townsend, about the bond they've forged in three years as teammates!
