The Columbus Cottonmouths now know who their first round playoff opponent will be.

The fifth-seeded Snakes will take on no. 4 Knoxville in a best-of-three series starting on Friday in Tennessee.

Columbus is trying to become just the second team in Southern Professional Hockey League history to repeat as champions. The first? These Knoxville Ice Bears in 2008 and 09.

The series begins Friday at 7:30 p.m. EST in Knoxville, with game two on Saturday in the Snake Pit. If necessary, a third game would be played in Knoxville on Sunday.

The Fayetteville FireAntz grabbed the top seed in the league. Huntsville was the last team to make the playoffs at no. 8.
