Fighting for their playoff lives, the Home Hardware Midget 'AAA' Legionnaires encountered a bit of a speed bump over the weekend.

On the road in Wilcox and Moose Jaw, the Legionnaires were only able to pick up one of a possible four points.

Taking on the last place Notre Dame Argos Friday night in Wilcox, the Legionnaires more than doubled the home team in shots, but wound up on the wrong end of the scoreboard.

Tied 1-1 entering the second period, the Legionnaires outshot the Argos 21-8 in the middle frame put were outscored 3-0, putting them behind 4-1 with just twenty minutes to go.

In the final period Ethan Regnier and Rin Beny found the back of the net just 17 seconds apart to bring Swift Current within one with 5:53 remaining.

However, that is as close as the Legionnaires would get as they fell 4-3 to the Argos.

Looking to bounce back on Saturday, Swift Current travelled to Moose Jaw for a battle with the Generals.

Jacob Piller got Swift Current off and running against the second-place Generals with an early first period goal.

His 10th of the season, Piller's goal held up through the entire first period and almost the second as well.

With just six seconds remaining in the middle frame though, the Generals beat Legionnaires goalie Cody Levesque for first time to knot the game 1-1.

Then, after Moose Jaw took their first lead of the game early in the third period, the Piller responded for Swift Current just under three minutes later.

Scoring his second of the game and 11th of the season, Piller tied the game 2-2 and ultimately sent the contest into overtime.

In the extra session, the Legionnaires fired a pair of shots on goal with no luck, however, with 19 seconds remaining, Moose Jaw beat Levesque with their first and only shot of the overtime to defeat Swift Current.

With the one point weekend, the Legionnaires remain on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoff picture.

They currently sit two points back of the 8th place Saskatoon Blazers, who hold two games in hand over Swift Current, and four points back of the 7th place Tisdale Trojans.

The Legionnaires will try to work their way back into the win column on Wednesday when they visit the league-leading Regina Pat Canadians.
