Sunday’s road trip victory in Strathmore was key for the Snakes to help continue their climb. With the 2-1 win it places the Copperheads in second place of the HJHL currently.
That being said, it is two points behind Okotoks Bisons in first but the Snakes have a one games in hand. This upcoming Friday night the 26th the two of them meet at 8 pm in Okotoks. If you’re looking for competitive hockey, this would be a game to pay the admission to.

Saturday night the Snakes dominated the Three Hills Thrashers on the road winning 8-2. Thrashers are having a tough year with only one win under their belt.
