The Watertown Privateers were unable to play Friday night’s game at the Danville Dashers because of transportation difficulties and subsequently were handed a forfeit loss by the Federal Hockey League.

Because of mechanical problems to the Privateers’ regular team bus, the team wasn’t able to travel to Danville, Ill. this week, according to team spokesman Chris Erickson.

As a result, the league awarded a 1-0 forfeit victory to Danville.

The Watertown team, which is scheduled to play a game at Danville at 8:05 tonight, was able to charter another bus and left town on its trip to the Midwest city on Friday night.
