COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

We're in the final countdown of the regular season in the SPHL. Just eight games remain for the Columbus Cottonmouths, and they’re beginning a push
for the playoffs.  

The Snakes are in ninth place in the league, and five points out of the eighth and final playoff spot...

But as they reach the home stretch of the regular season, there's still some hope for them to make the postseason. With just eight games left,  they're already in playoff mode, treating each game like it's their last.

“We’re in the playoffs already, it’s do or die,” Head coach Jerome Bechard said. “We’ve put ourselves in a big hole here and we’ve just got to dig ourselves out. I think I’ve got the guys to do it. It’s just a matter of getting some bounces and creating some energy ourselves.”

The Snakes continue their playoff push Tuesday when they take on the Fayettville FireAntz at home. Puck drops at 7:30 ET in the Columbus Civic Center.
