It’s finally here, the most anticipated game of the season is tonight! The Saint John Mill Rats (8-9 win/loss) are here in Summerside to take on the (7-10) Storm. There were family activities all day at the Credit Union Place that will end with this game. Tonight’s game has had people talking since the season began so tickets are on high demand. However there are still some tickets remaining for the game, you can get all your ticket information here —> http://summersidestorm.net/tickets-2/
This game also has significant importance for the Storm. They are going into tonight two games behind Saint John, but that would all be changed with a win. If the Storm in fact won tonight that would move their record to 8-10, and Saint John would drop to 8-10 also. However, if Summerside were to lose tonight they would fall to 7-11 on the season and that would move Saint John up to 9-9. Considering that, I feel tonight is a MUST WIN game for the Storm, if they lost it wouldn’t officially eliminate them from they playoffs but it sure would add unwanted pressure to this team down the final stretch of the season.
The Storm and Mill Rats are 2-2 in regular season play so far this year, so this game really could go either way. It will be up to Storm coach Joe Salerno to stress defence and smart passes to his team tonight. And it’s up to the players to play a full 48 minutes of basketball and limit their defensive breakdowns.
