It’s a full weekend of hockey as the University of Victoria Vikes head to Burnaby. The two rivals square off on Friday February 22nd and Saturday February 23rd, with both games starting at 7pm sharp.
SFU is 3-1-0 against UVIC this season, with SFU outscoring the Vikes 17-9 in that span.
SFU rookie and former Coquitlam Express Mitch Newsome will look to continue his hot play, carrying 6 goals and 4 assists in his last 5 games into the weekend showdown.
The clock is also winding down on 5th year defenseman Mathew Berry-Lamontagna‘s storied college career. The SFU captain has been carrying a decimated blueline on his back, and has 8 points in his last 7 games. The former Prince Albert Raider will retire with a healthy lead on BCIHL all-time scoring lead for defensemen.
With 4 games remaining, wins in all 4 would catapult SFU into 2nd place in league standings and give them home ice advantage. One or more losses would leave SFU in 4th place and set to square off against top-ranked TWU.
