Getting to the Playoffs

by Dave B. in


The Falmouth Commodores and Chatham A's can assure themselves of at least a tie for second place in their respective divisions this evening. Falmouth leads third place Hyannis by six points going into tonight's game against the Mets at Fuller Field. A Falmouth win would give them an eight point lead with only four games remaining on the schedule. A Hyannis win could make things interesting since Hyannis will get another crack at Falmouth in the regular season finale on Wednesday.

In the East, Chatham has moved that much closer to a playoff spot as a result of John Schiffner's record-setting 335th victory last night. Chatham has a six point lead over third place Brewster and an eight point lead over Orleans. Chatham has a game in hand on Brewster and Orleans. A Chatham win today, combined with a Brewster loss, would clinch no worse than a second-place tie. If Chatham slips up in their remaining games with Cotuit, Y-D and Orleans, they will leave the door open for the Whitecaps because Brewster plays head-to-head against Chatham on Sunday and Tuesday.
