The Neepawa Natives lost their fourth straight game last Monday night when they traveled to Waywayseecappo to play the Sher-Wood Division's fourth-placed Wolverines. The loss all but eliminated the Natives from the playoff race as Neepawa would now have to win out its final 10 games of the season to reach the playoffs while the Wolverines would have to lose eight of their final nine games. Winkler is also in the playoff hunt, only six points back of Waywayseecappo. The Natives aren't the only MJHL squad on an extended losing streak at the moment. As of Friday morning, the Addison Division's fourth-place Selkirk Steelers were on a nine-game streak while the Virden Oil Capitals were on a 10-game losing streak.
