BCHL releases full 2014-2015 schedule, Charity Classic, U16 Softball Provincials
The BCHL released the full 2014-2015 sked today. The Bulldogs Home Opener is Saturday, September 27th when they host Powell River. The Bulldogs and Kings conclude the Regular Season with a double-header in Powell River February 27th and 28th.
Another highlight sees the Bulldogs facing the Kings in a New Year's Eve tilt facing off in Powell River at 5:00pm.
The Bulldogs had best not put themselves in a position to need points at the end of the season like they did last year, as 7 of their final 10 games are on the road, including 5 in a row to end the season. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess no one in the league has more than 3 straight on the road to end their regular season.
(Update - I checked. No other team has any more than 2 road games to end the season)
The positives can be found in the form of multiple multi-game Home Stands of 3 and 4 games on several different occasions.
Another note is how late the season starts due to the condensed schedule. Sept 6-8th or Sept 10-12th was the general ball park for when the season used to get going in the past. Lots of games, in less time to play them.
