The 2019 NZIHL regular season will get underway this weekend for the Botany Swarm as they take on the West Auckland Admirals from Avondale. These will be the first two games of the season for the Swarm as their previous games against the Canterbury Red Devils on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May were cancelled due to weather.
Games will be played on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 June at the The Hive (Paradice Ice Rink Botany), with warm up starting at 4.30pm and puck drop at 4.40pm.
These two teams always produce a spectacle on the ice and both teams will be out to score as many early season points as they can.
Since 2005, these two teams have faced off 56 times. The Swarm have won 33 of these games, the Admirals 19 with four tied games in the past 14 years. This season, the Swarm will be fighting to keep their winning streak and get more game wins.
