The Alberni Valley Bulldogs open their home season this Friday, Sept. 13 with a game against archrival Nanaimo Clippers.

Alberni Valley Bulldogs’ netminder Blake Pearson takes a shot to the chest from Coquitlam Express’ Cody Boyd during the Bulldogs’ second game of the Bauer BCHL Showcase last weekend in Chilliwack. The Express won 9-4.

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs open their home season this Friday, Sept. 13 with a tailgate party in the parking lot at the AV Multiplex, followed by a game against archrival Nanaimo Clippers at 7 p.m. at Weyerhaeuser Arena.

The Bulldogs are 0-2 after dropping a pair of games at the Bauer BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack last weekend. Penticton Vees edged the ‘Dogs 3-2 in their season opener, then Coquitlam Express went to town with a 9-4 win.
