The North Island Silvertips built some momentum with their first pre-season games, so they’ll try to maintain that edge this weekend.
Nanaimo’s B.C. Major Midget League hockey team plays another pre-season home-and-home series against the South Island Thunderbirds Saturday (Sept. 10) and Sunday.
The two teams met last weekend, with Nanaimo scoring back-to-back victories. The ’Tips edged the T-birds 2-1 on Sept. 3 in Victoria, then blew out their rivals 7-0 the next day at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.
The series continues with games Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Fuller Lake Arena in Chemainus and Sunday at 2:45 p.m. at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. The BCMML schedule begins Sept. 24.
