The Dogs picked up a 6-3 win over the Vipers at the Pound in the previous match up on November 6th. I thought that the Vipers brought a great effort and might have deserved a better fate in that contest, but credit to the Dogs for being opportunistic. Today's game at the end of a three-in-three roadie will be a big challenge for the Dogs, but here's hoping that they can bring a solid team effort and think back to last Sunday when Langley came into their building at the end of a three-in-three and stole two points from them after trailing 3-0 and just refusing to quit.
The Dogs were in action last night in West Kelowna where they picked up a 10-5 win over the Warriors. The Vipers meanwhile had yesterday off from game action, but they have still had a busy week. They fell 4-1 in West Kelowna Friday night, and picked up a 5-3 at home over Merritt on Wednesday night.

Matt is now the Head Equipment Manager with the Victoria Royals, and he has a pretty cool opportunity coming up this winter as he'll head to Finland to work on the Team Canada staff at the World Juniors. Matty is a fantastic trainer who always went above and beyond in his time with the Dogs and was incredibly passionate and diligent with his job on a day to day basis, so it's no surprise he's getting an opportunity like this one!
