HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - It wasn't the outcome they wanted, but the Huntsville Havoc are still in the running for their second Southern Professional Hockey League title.

The Havoc lost to the Peoria Rivermen in a sold-out game in Huntsville Friday night. They trailed throughout the game with a final score of 2-3.

However, the Havoc beat the Macon Mayhem in Georgia last week. This means they will play the Rivermen again in Illinois on Sunday for a best-of three game to determine the President's Cup champion.

If the Cardiac Pack wins Sunday, it will be their second championship since 2010.
