SAINT PAUL, Minn.- Tonight the Schaumburg Flyers go head-to-head against the Gary SouthShore RailCats at the U.S. Steel Yard in Gary, Indiana. The Flyers have won the first two games in a best-of-five contest for the Eastern Division Title.
If the RailCats can win the next three games in the series they could claim the Eastern Division Title and go on to the Championship to defend their 2005 Northern League Title.
Currently the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks are also down two games to the Winnipeg GoldEyes and meet again this evening in a best-of-five contest for the Western Division Title.
Both the RedHawks and the RailCats have to win the next three games in order to move on to the 2006 Championship series next week.
