The Fargo Force had a great turnout for their last regular season home game of the season. 4,837 fans were able to see a good hockey game that the Force eventually lost in a shootout to the top team in the USHL. With the win, Green Bay clinched the Anderson Cup.
The Force are pretty much locked into the 2nd spot in the West Division and will probably take on the Sioux Falls Stampede in their first round of the Clark Cup playoffs. In order to get first place in the West Division, Omaha would have to lose their remaining two games and the Force would have to win their remaining three games. With one more win, the Force will clinch home ice advantage for the first round playoff series with Sioux Falls.
