Dogs crack National Rankings! Ross and Hatch on THE PEAK this morning...Teddy Bear pictures.
Well, what does three wins and a loss over the week get the Alberni Valley Bulldogs besides a share of first place in the Coastal Conference standings?
A place in the top 20 teams in the country!

Bill Bestwick isn't happy with the officiating from yesterday's game.
Read from the Clipper side of the puck, from the Nanaimo Daily News - "Clippers miss chance to gain on Bulldogs"
Bestwick was ejected from the game in the second period after picking up a bench minor when his team was about to head on the power play. I don't know what the protest was about, but it might have been something on the faceoff in front of the Nanaimo bench. As play continued, the Dogs would pick up a penalty. Things would be evened up after the bench minor, which quickly morphed into a game ejection.
"Bulding a Better Community by Fighting Hunger Today" is the slogan of the Dogs food drive this month. TOMORROW - bring a non perishable food item to the game and you could win a turkey or ham!
The Dogs goal is to raise their team weight in food for Christmas - 4002 pounds.
The Dogs have teamed up with the ADSS Leadership Group for this one. I'll have members from the ADSS group and the Bulldogs group on THE PEAK today and tomorrow.
Today - Matt Hatch and Kevin Ross. Tomorrow - Mitch MacMillan and Ryan Corbiell. Be sure to tune in between 8am and 9am to catch it!
