The Kimberley Dynamiters can lock up first place in their division with a win Friday.
The Nitros host the Golden Rockets in the first half of a home-and-home.
Forward James Farmer says they’re not worrying about the standings once the game starts.
“It’s obviously in the back of our mind but I think we’re just going to show up and play the game and hopefully the outcome is in our favour.” says Farmer.
Kimberley owns a 33-7-1-1 record and sits seven points ahead of Creston Valley (29-11-2-1) for the Eddie Mountain Division lead.
Farmer says some of their rookies have played a key role in where they stand.
“They’re really starting to find their groove [and] finding out how to get points and going to the right spots.” says Farmer. “They’re not rookies anymore, they’re vets for sure.”
Fernie plays host to Creston Valley Friday before welcoming Kimberley Sunday.
Elsewhere the Columbia Valley Rockies are on the road Friday taking on the Nitehawks.
