Wolves get the better of Braves in double OT

Westshore junior B squad play tonight at The Q Centre in Colwood

In Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League play last weekend, the Westshore Wolves needed double overtime to beat the Saanich Braves 3-2.

After a scoreless first, Tomba Huddlestan rippled the mesh 2:49 into the second. Just 11 seconds into the third, Westshore added to the lead on a goal by Kayden Peck.

But the Braves answered on the power play from Scott Henderson at 13:43, then Dale McCabe tied the game at 2-2 with just under three minutes left in the third.

Nathan Gelsinger converted a Branden Tangney pass 31 seconds into the second overtime period for the win.

The Wolves host the Kerry Park Islanders tonight (Dec. 23) at The Q Centre (7 p.m.) in their last game before the Christmas break. They return to action Jan. 6 against the South Division-leading Victoria Cougars.
