January 22, 2014, Victoria (ISN) – The UVic Mens Hockey Team hosts the Trinity Western University Spartans this Friday, January 24th and Saturday, January 25th at the Ian Stewart Complex in Victoria. Puck drop on Friday is set for 7:30 p.m. while Saturday’s action will begin at 12:30 p.m. Admission, as always, is by donation.
This trip will mark the Spartans only trip to the island this season but TWU did manage to win both of its home games against UVic in late October. The Vikes last came game on November 30th when the team took a decisive 5 – 0 road win over BCIHL leader Simon Fraser University. The Vikes will be looking to carry over the momentum and collect more points in this weekend series which marks the beginning of the season’s second half. Sitting at 6th place in the BCIHL standings, the Vikes are in desperate need of wins in order to keep their playoff hopes alive.
