2019 BCJT1LAX Schedule Released

by Owen Munro

The new schedule for the 2019 BC Junior B Tier 1 league has officially been posted.

The Richmond Roadrunners take on the Poco Saints in the first game of the season at the Poco Rec Centre on Thursday, April 26 at 8:00 PM. The Roadrunners started gaining momentum towards the end of last season but ultimately missed out on making the playoffs, going 5-13. Port Coquitlam also finished strong and made the playoffs with a 10-7-1 recod. The Saints went marching on past the Langley Thunder in three games before falling to the eventual provincial champions Victoria Shamrocks.

Those Shamrocks open up the 2019 campaign at home on Saturday, April 28 against the Burnaby Lakers at The Q Centre. Victoria won the provincials but did not attend the Founders' Cup; Coquitlam took Victoria's spot and actually ended up getting the Bronze Medal in the national Jr. B tournament.

Those A's have to wait until that Sunday, when they get the Lakers on a back-to-back at Bill Copeland Arena. The Purple and Gold will host Langley in their home opener on Friday, May 3.
