WolfPack well prepared for opportunity to capture BCIHL title on home ice
Tuesday, March 13, 2012 - Submitted by TRU Men's Hockey
For the first time in the brief history of the Thompson Rivers University hockey program, the WolfPack will have home ice advantage as they embark on the quest for gold at the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League's championship tournament.
"This is the biggest tournament for men’s collegiate hockey in B.C.” says TRU head coach Don Schulz. "For us, it's an opportunity to showcase not only our team but the best teams in the league.”
For the past two years TRU has finished the championship in second place. This year, Schulz hopes that his team can, “get over the hurdle of being second and bring home the championship.”
According to Schulz, Wednesday’s game against Okanagan College will be TRU’s "biggest game of the year." He hopes that the Kamloops public will get the chance to come out and see the calibre of hockey that’s being played.
Eastern Washington University, the University of Victoria, Thompson Rivers University, Okanagan College and Simon Fraser University will all compete for the championship title.
Wednesday marks the first day of tournament action with Eastern Washington taking on the University of Victoria at 4:00 p.m. That same day, Thompson Rivers University will play Okanagan College at 730 p.m.
For those who want to catch the action in person, day passes are $5 for adults, $2 for students and seniors and free for children 12 and under. For those wishing to attend all eight tournament games tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
Those who can't make it out to the rink can tune in to every game live on the web, as for the first time the event is being broadcast on a pay-per-view basis at $6 per game.
