Vipes and Vees lead BCHL, but lots of tight races in play

in regular season

December 5, 2017

Current BCHL Standings:

The Interior Division Vernon Vipers and Penticton Vees are duking it out for top honors in the BCHL, as the only two teams with a +.700 winning percentage so far.

The Vees are three points back of the first place Vipers, but have four games in hand at the moment. However, both the Wenatchee Wild and Trail Smoke Eaters are right there as well.

On the Island, the Powell River Kings are in a tight battle with the Nanaimo Clippers. The Kings are just one point up on the Clips but have three games in hand.

In the Mainland division, the Langley Rivermen lead the Prince George Spruce Kings by three, but the Spruce Kings hold three games in hand. The Surrey Eagles and Chilliwack Chiefs are both hot on the heals of the two leaders. Oddly, the Rivermen have given up more goals than they’ve scored.
