Quaboag has only one game left, at David Prouty on Tuesday night, and has an outside chance at finishing the season as a top-five Power Pack team.

The Mountaineers still have four games left on their schedule, and a difficult four at that. They still face Doherty, (2) St. John's and Brockton before the end of their season.
