I know I’m getting to sound a bit like a broken record, but again I apologize for taking so long to post on the blog.
The Cents are riding their first three game winning streak in three seasons and have also vaulted into fifth place in the BCHL’s Interior Conference after a win a week ago from Sunday against Prince George. Tomorrow’s game against Trail is another huge one as the Cents can put more distance between themselves and the Smoke Eaters, Quesnel and the Spruce Kings with win. For the Week in Review this week, I talked to Centennials head coach and GM Luke Pierce about returning from the Christmas break, the game tomorrow in Trail and preliminary discussions about the January 10th carding deadline.
