Interior Dominance

A lot has been made early on in this BCHL season about how good and how close the Interior Division is. The Penticton Vees won 13 straight games earlier this year, and just 9 points separates 2nd place from 6th in the division.

The Trail Smoke Eaters, who went 10-42-2-4 last season are vastly improved as well, and sit at 10-10, and sit 6 points back of a playoff spot with 1 game in hand.

Ever since the Bauer Showcase at the beginning of the season, when the Interior went 10-1-0-1 against the other 2 divisions, I have been tracking the records of all teams against the other divisions.

Heading into the November 21st weekend slate of games, here are the highlights:

  • Interior Division is 18-8-1-2 vs. Mainland Division, and 21-3-0-3 against the Island Division
  • Island Division is 14-5-1-2 vs. Mainland Division
  • The Mainland Division does not have a winning record against either division
For the Interior Division, this means that teams are 39-11-1-5 vs. the rest of the BCHL, gathering 75% of the possible points in those games.

It will be interesting to see how everything shakes down as the season progresses, as the Interior works through their 20 games vs. the Other Divisions, and the Mainland/Island play their 22 games vs. teams not in their division.
