Hard work will win tonight’s tilt

Fans should expect digging rather than dangling at the arena.

The Nanaimo Clippers and Alberni Valley Bulldogs, two workmanlike teams, face off tonight (Dec. 1) in B.C. Hockey League action at Frank Crane Arena.

“Typically the team that works the hardest and is the most disciplined usually comes out on top,” said Bill Bestwick, Clippers coach. “And of course you always have to get good goaltending.”

The Clippers have been solid between the pipes of late led by their No. 1 guy, Charles-Andre Pelletier. He’s a BCHL rookie but he’s already gained plenty of experience facing the Bulldogs.

“Sometimes you have some teams that it’s like you know the team and what they’re going to do,” he said. “Every time I’ve played against them it was a good game for me so I’m confident with this game [Wednesday].”

Clippers captain Colton Cyr said his team will try to put forth another effort like it did a week and a half ago at Port Alberni, when the Shipmen “didn’t really give them much” in a 3-1 win.

“Guys like what we’re doing right now; I think everyone’s buying into it,” Cyr said.

GAME ON … The Nanaimo Clippers and the Alberni Valley Bulldogs face off tonight (Dec. 1) at 7:10 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. Tickets will be available at the door.
