Rail Yard Dawgs Announce 2017-2018 Schedule

By Bill Turner - The Star


It may be 90 in the shade and a challenge to keep your ice cubes from melting in your favorite beverage.

But, don’t fret the heat. Ice hockey is just over three months away.


The Dawgs open the 17-18 campaign on Friday, October 20 at 7:05 against the newly rebranded Fayetteville Marksmen, the first of 28 home dates in the 56-game SPHL regular season.

Roanoke’s home schedule is family-friendly this year, consisting of four Thursday night games, 11 Fridays, 12 Saturdays and one Sunday game.The Dawgs will host Fayetteville on Thanksgiving, November 23, and will entertain the Knoxville Ice Bears on New Year’s Eve. All home games will be at the Berglund Center.

Roanoke will be looking to come out of the gate strong, with 8 of their first 9 games on the Berglund Center home ice. The Dawgs have 5 December home dates including the 30th and 31st, followed by five January home games that include three straight between January 5-12. February has five games at the Berglund Center, including four straight  home contests spread over the February 9-10 and 16-17 weekends.

Roanoke plays 7 straight on the road that stretches from February 18 through March 10, including games at Mississippi, Pensacola and Macon, sandwiched between games at Knoxville.

Peoria travels to Roanoke for the Dawgs regular season home finales March 30-31, before Roanoke hits the road to Peoria to end the regular season with a pair April 6-7.

To be clear, this is the Roanoke Star's sense of fashion on display.  The team released their season schedule on June 9th.

Not a very big newspaper around here.  Not even sure how often they put one out.  But its just nice seeing every media around here seems to be getting behind the team and writing articles giving some exposure to the team.  Even if it is over a month late.  :2thumbsup:
