CALGARY – For the first time since Nov. 4 the Weeks Crushers are not in the CJHL’s Top 20 Rankings.
Pictou County lost both games last week, 5-4 in a shootout to Amherst on Thursday before a 5-2 loss on the road to Truro on Saturday. With the win the Bearcats moved back into the rankings, taking over 17th spot.
The Crushers have lost four straight, but still sit in top spot in the MHL. That said the Truro Bearcats, Amherst Ramblers, Yarmouth Mariners, Miramichi Timberwolves and Dieppe Commandos are all within two points of the league’s top spot.
