The Bracknell Bees this weekend start off with a short road trip to face their local rivals and current EPIHL Cup and Playoff Champions the Guildford Flames (6pm faceoff) on Saturday before they return to The Hive on Sunday to take on another of their locals rivals and reigning League Champions the Basingstoke Bison (6pm faceoff).
Following on from a split weekend last time out for the Bees, losing out on the road to the Swindon Wildcats on Saturday before running the high flying Milton Keynes Lightning close at The Hive on Sunday narrowly losing out by the odd goal, the Berkshire side will be looking to bounce back but it will be a tough weekend as both the Flames and Bison are coming off the back of four point weekends with the Flames having defeated Milton Keynes and Hull whilst the Bison defeated the Sheffield Steeldogs home and away.
With local rivalries abound in both of this weekend’s matches and with plenty of former Bees icing for both opponents the games are sure to be tense affairs and should be action packed, entertaining match ups.
Tickets for the Sundays home game v Basingstoke Bison are now available from the rink box office on 01344 789000 or can be purchased on the day.
Anyone who still needs to collect their Season Member Card or for those Sponsors and Team Partners who wish to collect their Season passes please also head to hospitality, upstairs, and see either Matt Fettel or Carol Miller.
