The Coachella Valley Firebirds are kicking off Pride weekend in dominant fashion

The Coachella Valley Firebirds continued their winning ways, kicking off their inaugural Pride weekend in dominant fashion Saturday night at Acrisure Arena.

The Firebirds have had the San Jose Barracuda’s number all season, and Saturday was no different. They scored twice in the first period and took a 2-0 lead, and then they never looked back, they kicked and finished with a 4-0 victory.

It was the seventh straight win for the Firebirds and the tenth in 11 games. Coachella Valley is now 22-6-3 on the season and has grabbed sole possession of first place in the Pacific Division. Calgary, which was tied with them, did not play on Saturday. Coachella Valley outscored its opponents 44-21 in that stretch.

The Barracuda, the San Jose Sharks affiliate, have struggled against the Firebirds this season, losing all four matchups. Coachella Valley’s dominance may be why there seemed to be animosity between the two teams as a fight and multiple other altercations broke out during the game.
