Three Saturday showdowns between BFA-St. Albans and Essex all helped BFA teams improve their playoff position. The Bobwhites won a hockey battle between two teams jockeying for the second seed — and home ice for a potential semifinal playoff game, after the No. 1 Hornet and No. 2 Comet girls skated to a scoreless tie. The draw kept BFA more than one win ahead of No. 3 Spaulding with less than two weeks remaining in the regular season. On the basketball court, the BFA girls moved past Essex and into eighth place — the last spot earning a home playoff opener — with their dramatic win over the Hornets.
