The host Western Regals can clinch the regular-season championship with a win, but the surging Mid-Isle Matrix will be looking to keep their first-place hopes alive.
The Regals, who are 20-3-4 (won-lost-tied), take a five-point lead over the Matrix (19-6-1) into the game. Mid-Isle has four games remaining in the regular season, and Western has three.
Both teams enter Saturday’s game as the league’s two hottest teams. The Matrix is on a 14-game winning streak, and has not lost since a 7-5 setback against the Regals in Alberton on Dec. 7. The Regals are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games.
