Dogs host Grizzlies.....Nucks over Blues
A big one tonight, as the Bulldogs and Grizzlies meet tonight at the Pound in the final meeting of the season between the two clubs.
The Grizzlies are red hot right now, winners of 8 in a row, including a 5-3 win over the Vernon Vipers last Saturday night. They were last in action this past Saturday where they won 1-0 in Cowichan.
And they are the only team not named Vernon to beat the Bulldogs over their last 17 games.
The last time these teams met was December 8th, a 2-1 Grizz win at the Dog Pound.
All points up for grabs aside, this game is a BIG one as it's the last meeting of the regular season between the two clubs. With a playoff meeting being a possibility, this game is that much more important in that it's an opportunity for someone to get some confidence in the head to head match up and send a message to the other team in the process.
Having said all that - if either of these teams meet in the playoffs they'll probably both say that this game means nothing now, or something along those lines, haha!
Lets not forget the two points up for grabs as they are big ones like any points are this late in the season. The Bulldogs magic number to clinch their first Coastal Conference title is 5.5 games. The Grizzlies are just TWO points out of a second place tie with Powell River. You can bet the Grizzlies will be motivated tonight and no doubt very confident riding an 8 game win streak. The Dogs had best be ready to play their best over a full 60 minutes.
