For the second straight season, Nova Scotia Major Bantam Hockey is coming to Mariners Centre.

Yarmouth will host a game between the Western Hurricanes and Kings Mutual Valley Wildcats tomorrow afternoon.

The Hurricanes made an appearance at Mariners Centre last year, they usually play their home games in Liverpool at the Queens Place Emera Centre.

Head Coach Shawn Woodworth says Major Bantam is really good hockey.

"It's a fantastic league. Entertainment wise, it's worth it to come out and watch. Yarmouth is such a good hockey town, they love coming out to the rink. We're hoping a lot of people come out and support the team."

The Hurricanes have a record of 9-5, while the Wildcats sit at the bottom of the league standings with just one win in 14 games.

Yarmouth goalie Jeremy Charles and forward Andre d'Entremont, along with Shelburne County defenseman Ryan O'Callaghan and forward Nolan Atwood play for the Hurricanes.

Woodworth says it will be a competitive contest.

"Every weekend is big. We're heading to the middle of our season, and every two points is huge in the standings."

Puck drop is at 5pm.
