So Halifax will be heading to New England where they hope to pick up their first wins in either socialist Vermont or libertarian New Hampshire. I am of the mind that Halifax need to walk away with at least a split but I don’t think it’s impossible to sweep the series. It’s likely that the wildcard spot in the play offs will come down to a game between the second place team in the Atlantic and the second place team in the East so Halifax need to not only get wins against Manchester and Vermont, but prevent the Rats and the Heaves from getting wins as well.
We know what to expect from Manchester, but I’d expect them to come out even more motivated to beat Halifax after Thursday’s win. They will also have Kenyon Gamble all geared up and ready to go.
Vermont have made some line up tweaks but they have been inconsistent this year so here’s hoping Halifax can steal a win on their home turf.
Both games will be available live on line.
In other news, the next home game for Halifax (Sunday, Feb. 8 ) will be “Kids Day” and children’s tickets will be five dollars. The next two games after that on the 13th and 15th will mark the triumphant return of Duncan MacLellan to the the lower bowl of the MetroCentre.
