THOMPSON BLAZERS WEEK IN REVIEW
The Thompson Blazers have had a bit of a rocky start since opening weekend, September 20th and 21st. Opening weekend saw the Blazers fall to the visiting Fraser Valley Thunderbirds 4-0 and 6-0 respectively. The Blazers then turned their sights to the VW Hawks this past weekend in Richmond, BC. “BCMML Showcase” weekend didn’t see the Blazers end up with a win as they were downed by the Hawks 5-1 and 6-0 on Saturday and Sunday.
The Thompson Blazers have been busy preparing for their next opponent, Kootenay Ice, who come to town this Friday and Saturday for a pair of Blazers home games. The Blazers vs. Ice first game matchup is set for Friday October 3rd at 6:30pm at Interior Savings Center. Game two will follow on Saturday morning at 10:30am at Interior Savings Center.
