Bison announce Autumn Cup Semi-finalsThe Sherfield School Basingstoke Bison are pleased to announce confirmation of the home and away dates for the highly anticipated Autumn Cup Semi-Finals.
Having topped Group 1 with a 3-0-1-0 the Bison will compete against Hull Pirates who were runners up in Group 2 finishing with a 2-0-1-1 record.
Bison Head Coach Doug Sheppard is excited to announce that Basingstoke will host the opening leg of the semi-final on Friday 26th January with a 7.45pm face-off. With the Herd flying high in the league and opening the Autumn Cup semi finals on home ice this should prove to be an exciting night of hockey to start the final weekend of January.
Bison season ticket holders are reminded, as per the terms of the season tickets, that this game does not form part of the package and tickets will need to be purchased either online or at the Arena. Season ticket holders’ reserved seats will be reserved until 90 minutes prior to face-off.
The second leg will take place on Wednesday 7th February in Hull where face-off will be 7.30pm.
Doug Sheppard said; “We’ve had a pretty good run in the Autumn Cup finishing top of the group and we’re all looking forward to the Semi-finals. We’ve learned this season that we need to be on top of our game otherwise teams will punish us so we’ll be looking to play good strong Bison hockey across the two legs and get a good start on home ice cheered on by our loyal supporters and take some cup momentum with us into the second leg a few days later.”
The other semi final sees Group 2 winners Swindon play against Group 1 runners up Peterborough.
