Shreveport Mudbugs Traveling This Weekend: Playoff Implications on the Line
Last weekend, the Mudbugs played their final home regular season games. Now, they have one final task before the playoffs.
It was no secret that last week's games held serious playoff implications for the Shreveport Mudbugs. It's quite simple... At that point, the Mudbugs had four regular season games left. Two at home against Topeka, and finishing with two on the road against the rival Lonestar Brahmas.With the 2nd seed within grasp, the Bugs would have little room for error in their final four-game stretch. They were able to get two W's this past weekend, now all eyes are set out West.
This Brahmas rivalry has been around since the good ole days, so it's fitting that these two teams will finish the season against each other, with playoff implications in the balance.
These two teams find themselves neck-and-neck in the standings. The Mudbugs currently sit in third place in the South division, while the Brahmas sit just one single point ahead in the 2nd seed position.
Now, if the Mudbugs want to jump to that second seed, they'll have to defeat the current 2nd seed two nights in a row, in their house. If there's any team that can do it, though, it's this resilient group of Mudbugs.
Win or lose, the Mudbugs will be in the playoffs this season, and whenever that schedule is announced, we'll make sure you know.
The Mudbugs take on the Brahmas this Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 PM, inside the NYTEX Sports Centre in North Richland Hills, Texas.
